Series Premieres Next Month

During the ad breaks for Sunday night’s Super Bowl, we got our first proper look at Clarice, the sequel series to The Silence Of The Lambs.

Clarice is technically set in the same universe as Lambs but plot points and characters from the film will not be featured for licensing reasons. Most notably, Hannibal Lecter won’t be mentioned.

Here’s the trailer –

The upcoming CBS series picks up where The Silence Of The Lambs left off, following FBI agent Clarice Starling a year after the events of the movie. Rebecca Breeds plays the title character, a role made famous by Jodie Foster in the original 1991 movie.

The series also stars Michael Cudlitz (Band of Brothers), Lucca de Oliveira (The Punisher), Kal Penn (Designated Survivor), Nick Sandow (Orange is the New Black), Devyn Tyler (Fear the Walking Dead), and Marnee Carpenter (Good Girls).

Jenny Lumet and Alex Kurtzman, whose recent work includes Star Trek: Discovery, created the series, and their Trek colleague Heather Kadin and Grey’s Anatomy’s Elizabeth Klaviter are on board as executive producers.

Clarice premieres on February 11th on CBS.
