News has been confirmed that True Blood actress Rutina Wesley has been cast for a new role in the NBC show Hannibal. The show is based on a novel by Thomas Harris titled Red Dragon.

Hannibal Season 3 will be adding the new character Reba McClane, played by Wesley, who will be a blind lady who will get involved in a relationship with Francis Dolarhyde which is played by Richard Armitage, and she will be helping him to get over his murderous urges.

Nina Arianda will also be joining Wesley in the new cast list in the show for this season and she will be playing Molly, Will Graham's wife.

The trailer for the new season of Hannibal was out a few days back and it sure gave the viewer's many shivers; it is dark and it is deep. The trailer came out after 8 months since the second season had ended, to a great welcome by the fans, who were eagerly waiting to see their favorite show.

The last season had ended on a very "bloody" note, with a lot of bloodbaths. This season will see Will Graham trying to track his friend in Italy and Florence, after one year of Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier's and Hannibal's escape, which was shown in the final moments of the last season.

Hannibal Season 3will be premiering in 2015; the final date of release has not been announced yet. With its hit streak at an all- time high, producers of both the show and the channel are looking forward for a great third season.
