OK, technically there are only two premieres that interest me in February 2014. The Walking Dead isn’t a real premiere; it’s just the first episode after the midseason break. We’ll still talk about it here because I’m obsessed with the show. Let’s jump in, shall we?
The Walking Dead – After the usual mid-season break, we find ourselves approaching the next 8 episodes of the hit zombie apocalypse show based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel. In the first half of season four, we wrapped up all of the contents of the first Compendium and finished the stories of The Governor and Hershel. I can’t wait to see where we will go next!
The show returns on Sunday, February 9th. You can see the ‘returning to Season 4 video below:
Season 4, Episode 409 Sneak Peek:
I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I am a huge, gigantic fan of Vikings. The trailers are showing us a battle that pitches Ragnar and Rollo on opposites sides. I am excited (and terrified) to see how all of these battles roll out and who dies (note: this is the show that made me swear off ever announcing who my favorite character is. They always die.)
Vikings returns on February 27.
You can see the season 2 trailers below:
I was very happy to see that Hannibal garnered a second season. The show portrays the rise of the infamous doctor and his interactions with his polar opposite: Will Graham.
The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a second season with more shocking revelations and psychological cat and mouse games. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is locked in a mental asylum accused of Hannibal Lecter’s crimes (Mads Mikkelsen). Now that Will sees Hannibal for what he truly is, he faces a fight to prove his own sanity and convince those closest to him he is innocent of murder. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer. Looking for answers, Jack turns to Hannibal, a man he has come to trust. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack’s new consultant on cases. Hannibal is torn between self-preservation and his desire to keep Will close to him, despite advice from his psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), to stay away.
The deadly dance between these characters continues to turn in startling and unexpected ways, in a season that will show that nothing can ever be the same again.
Hannibal returns to television on February 28th.
