‘Hannibal’ season 2 cast pose with flower crowns to thank fans

The Hannibal cast have shown off their sense of humour, posing with flower crowns to say thank you to their fans.

Hannibal season 2 filming has recently commenced, and the cast of the NBC thriller have taken this chance to say thank you to their self-described “Fannibals.”

Check out Hannibal stars Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Mads Mikkelsen (Dr. Hannibal Lecter), Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom), Laurence Fishburne (Jack Crawford), Hettienne Park (Beverly Katz), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) and Raul Esparza (Dr. Frederick Chilton) expressing their gratitude. And just for good measure, they included Winston the dog as well.

The flower crown meme has long been circulating on Tumblr, but has seemed to ring true to many Hannibal fans. The contrast between the flower crowns and dramatic tone of the show and dark visual style seems to appeal to fans. They have since taken it upon themselves to photoshop flowers crowns onto screenshots of the cast and crew.

Showrunner Bryan Fuller has been posting the portraits on his Twitter. This is further evidence that Fuller is a showrunner who truly understands the power of fandom. These photos show Hannibal fans that they are appreciated – and more importantly, understood.

Hannibal season 2 will see Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon joining the team. Nixon joins the show in a recurring role that will see her working closely with Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford, as she portrays his boss.
