This research focuses its interest on the television series Hannibal (Fuller et al., 2013-2015)and, more specifically, on the intertextual or dialogical relations it establishes −and which alterscontinually− with the original narrative universe. Similar to the modus operandi of the cannibal,the fiction draws on the literary legacy of its creator Thomas Harris and the eponymous filmadaptations with the aim to give a new meaning to them. The series directed by showrunner BryanFuller becomes a true cannibal adaptation, in that it extends, throughout its three seasons, Lecter'scannibalism and liminality to the narrative level. Thus, from its first seasons, the series is situatedat an intermediate point, in an indeterminate space between prequel, adaptation and reinventionof the so-called Hannibalverse or Hannibal universe in which both the villainous protagonist andhis disciple Will Graham are inscribed.
