More pieces of NBC's post-Olympics midseason schedule are falling into place. The Peacock has set the second-season premiere of "Hannibal" for Feb. 28 in the Friday 10 p.m. slot following "Grimm."

Series from Gaumont Intl. TV stars Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy as criminal profiler Will Graham.
