Creator and executive producer Bryan Fuller made the announcement Thursday via social media, tweeting: "#Hannibal Requests the Honor of your Presence for Dinner" (Global News).

The show is based on characters that were created by Thomas Harris. Starring Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter as well as Hugh Dancy ("The Big C"), Caroline Dhavernas ("Off The Map"), Lara Jean Chorostecki ("Copper"), and Canadian-born actor Scott Thompson ("Wingin' It"), will profile the eerie title character as the well-known psychiatrist (played by everyone from Anthony Hopkins to Brian Cox) sympathizes with serial killers and explores his relationship with a young FBI criminal profiler. Thirteen episodes of the series were shot in all, wrapping up in Toronto this week.

A Canadian network that will carry the show has not yet been announced.

"Hannibal" will air on Thursday nights at 10pm starting on April 4th on NBC.
