Break out the liver, fava beans and a nice Chianti — Hannibal is indeed returning for Season 2.

NBC waited almost two weeks after its upfront announcements, leaving fans nervous about the new show. But Deadline says the network renewed Hannibal for a 13-episode Season 2, to return "next midseason or later."

“We’re so proud of [executive producer] Bryan [Fuller]'s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. “There are many great stories still to be told.”

Are you excited? Relieved? Apathetic? Feel something!
