A Silence of the Lambs television series is in development at CBS, according to Deadline.
The new series, which is called Clarice, will serve as a direct sequel to the 1991 film starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster. Clarice will take place in 1993, one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet are on board to write and executive produce the series.
Deadline reveals that Clarice will be “a deep dive into the untold personal story of FBI agent Clarice Starling, as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high stakes political world of Washington, D.C.”
