The Silence of the Lambs now has a direct sequel – in TV show form. The upcoming CBS series Clarice hopes to be an immediate follow-up to Jonathan Demme’s Oscar-winning thriller, which means it will have absolutely nothing to do with Hannibal Lecter. As you’ll recall, Hannibal escapes at the end of Silence, and goes into hiding for years. On top of that, the rights to Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter books are a bit of a mess, which means the folks behind Clarice can’t even mention Lecter. Instead, the series will focus on how Agent Clarice Starling (played by Rebecca Breeds) goes about her law enforcement career in the aftermath of having taken down serial killer Buffalo Bill. Watch the Clarice trailer below.
