Prepare for the Red Dragon, and say goodbye to Hannibal, in final SDCC trailer

NBC’s beloved thriller Hannibal might be headed to serial killer heaven, but that doesn’t mean the acclaimed series is over just yet.

Show creator Bryan Fuller debuted a lengthy new trailer for the final season (which is currently airing), showing off a ton of footage of new baddie the Red Dragon, aka Francis Dolarhyde. The character is being played by The Hobbit alum Richard Armitage, and he is looking extremely intense and creepy. It’s classic Hannibal, and a depressing reminder that this show is coming to a premature end.

Le sigh. Enjoy.
