Successful sociopath serial Hannibal finished up its third season earlier this year. Recently stalking onto DVD and Blu-ray shelves and boasting tons of special features, behind-the-scenes footage and deleted scenes as well as the following exclusive clip featuring the cast paying tribute to the show's shockingly ardent fanbase.
Otherwise known as 'Fannibals,' the community who've rallied round the series are borderline psychopathic in their dedication to all things Hannibal, and you can see how humbled the stars are by it here:
"Me not being on Facebook or Twitter, I always get extreme surprise when I meet them [the Fannibles] at conventions once in a while. It's a different world, I can't believe it exists."
"They are so dedicated, they dress up like us. I've seen it before for things like Star Wars, but you never think that'll happen to a show you're in. In must be fun to be them!"
"I hope they will always be excited by what Bryan does in the future."
"Making the show happens, to some extent, in a little bubble and the feeling that out there there are people that have really tapped into this twisted thing and appreciate the poetry of it and are wishing you well and are just getting a kick out of it -- it's incredible."
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: the sole message I have is 'thank you, thank you so much.' I mean without you guys we wouldn't have been there for three seasons."
Hannibal: Season 3 was met with near-unanimous critical acclaim. Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly wrote:
Hannibal remains the most engrossing (and gross) serial-killer drama on television, and the most beautiful.
Make sure you catch all the flesh-eating action, available now on DVD and Blu-ray.
