While work on NBC’s hit series Hannibal season 3 is well underway up in Canada, and the news that Bryan Fuller mentioned that new characters could be seen in the anticipated season, well, now comes the word that Tao Okamoto will play Lady Murasaki.
Murasaki was introduced in Thomas Harris’ novel “Hannibal Rising”, Murasaki is Hannibal’s aunt. But, as always, expect quite some alterations. Fuller told ShockTillYouDrop.com back in August:
“We’re taking the spirit of the character because of the events that happen in their lives. Her relationship to Hannibal will be more damaged and different. That will definitely be interesting to the fans of [Thomas Harris'] literature.”
Okamoto was last seen in Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine.
Season 3 of HANNIBAL finds the title character going on the run after the bloodbath that occurred in the season finale of Season 2. A manhunt will begin in Europe as Will Graham and the FBI track the killer.

The TV spot reveals new footage from the series!
Seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her.
Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight”-an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences–is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
