“Hello, Clarice.” Or, should we say, “Welcome back.”
It’s time to get excited Silence of the Lambs fans as FBI agent Clarice Starling is getting the TV treatment. And, per the new show’s description, we’ll get to know Clarice’s personal story more than ever before.
The new CBS series, aptly titled Clarice, follows Agent Starling (played by Rebecca Breeds) one year after the events of Silence of the Lambs. Thus, the rising FBI star finds herself still reeling from serial killer Buffalo Bill’s capture, whom she nabbed thanks to the help of cannibalistic killer Hannibal Lecter.
Still, Starling must return to the field and her home state of West Virginia as a new crime comes to the surface.
“You are a woman with a very public reputation for hunting monsters,” one of Clarice’s higher ups (played by Jayne Atkinson) informs her in the first look below.
However, it seems Clarice is hesitant to embrace this reputation as she’s “only done it once.”
