Fans of director Jonathan Demme's 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are getting a new sequel courtesy of CBS. The network is currently developing a TV series set in 1993, one year after the events in the movie based on Thomas Harris' 1988 novel of the same name.

Titled Clarice, Deadline reports that the show is “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.”

Starling was portrayed by Jodie Foster in the The Silence of the Lambs and Julianne Moore in Ridley Scott’s 2001 sequel, Hannibal. Foster won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as the FBI agent.

Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, who have been tapped to write and executive produce CBS' Clarice, said of the series, “After more than 20 years of silence, we’re privileged to give voice to one of America’s most enduring heroes — Clarice Starling. Clarice’s bravery and complexity have always lit the way, even as her personal story remained in the dark. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always.”

This isn't the first attempt at a television series based on FBI agent Clarice Starling, however, as a similar 2012 project by Lifetime never materialized.
