The lambs have been sleeping with a humidifier, drinking tea, and doing vocal exercises for weeks, and next month they’re going to scream like you’ve never heard them scream before. CBS released the first full trailer for its upcoming drama on Sunday Clarice, effectively a sequel to the 1988 Thomas Harris novel Thesilenceofthelambs. In it, Agent Starling, brought to the big screen in the 1991 film adaptation of Jonathan Demme by Jodie Foster and played here by Pretty little Liars Actress Rebecca Breeds, attempts to put the heart-wrenching events of the book behind her a year later and return to her career as an FBI killer hunter, only to be haunted by her recent proximity to evil. No, we’re not talking about Hannibal Lecter, who isn’t mentioned in the trailer at all, but rather Buffalo Bill, the serial killer Starling who was shot down with the help of Hannibal.
Clarice will find encouragement on her way from friend and fellow FBI agent Ardelia Mapp (Kasi Lemmons in the movie, played by Devyn A. Tyler in the series) and from Senator turned Attorney General Ruth Martin (Diane Baker in the movie, played here Jayne Atkinson), although her daughter Catherine (Brooke Smith in the film, now played by Marnee Carpenter), Buffalo Bill’s latest potential victim, seems much less optimistic. “I will never be safe,” warns Catherine. ” You neither. Only time will tell of who or what she is still terrified of. Clarice will premiere on CBS and CBS All Access on Thursday, February 11 at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT.
“I’ll never be safe,” Catherine said. ” You neither. Only time will tell of who or what she’s still afraid of and hopefully the series premiere, which premieres Thursday on CBS and CBS All Access, February 11 at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT.
