A new Clarice trailer dropped during the Super Bowl over the weekend, and it’s a trailer that’s practically screaming, “HEY, REMEMBER SILENCE OF THE LAMBS?!” in all caps. The trailer has Rebecca Breeds as FBI Agent Clarice Starling recounting her traumatic childhood story of trying to save a lamb from slaughter, and even goes ahead and throws in a quick shot recreating the Silence of the Lambs poster, where a moth perches right on Clarice’s lips.

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.
