Check out the trailer below:
The series will follow Clarice, a young FBI trainee, as she continues to track down serial killers and sexual predators, all the while trying to navigate the political world of Washington DC. It will be set one year after the events of Thomas Harris's original The Silence of the Lambs novel.
In The Silence of the Lambs, Clarice was played by Jodie Foster as she hunts a serial killer, "Buffalo Bill" - who skins his female victims. To catch him, she seeks the advice of the imprisoned Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer.
Pretty Little Liars actress Rebecca Breeds will star as the titular detective in the drama, which will take place in 1993.
In the trailer, we see other familiar characters from the film, such as Starling's FBI colleague Ardelia Mapp (Devyn Tyler) and kidnapping survivor Catherine Martin (Marnee Carpenter).
CBS senior executive vice president Thom Sherman said in a statement about the show's launch: "All eyes will be on CBS for three consecutive Sundays in early 2021 with the broadcasts of the AFC Championship Game, the GRAMMY Awards, and Super Bowl LV.
"These powerhouse events provide us with the perfect platforms to promote the February debuts of our captivating new drama, Clarice, and the return of the positive and heartfelt Tough As Nails, which had a very successful first season run that resonated with viewers over the summer."
Clarice is the second TV show inspired by Thomas Harris' novels featuring the Hannibal character. Fans will remember Hannibal, which started Mads Mikkelsen as the titular character and Hugh Dancy as FBI investigator Will Graham. Despite it's cancellation after only three seasons, it has garnered a cult following and critical acclaim,
Clarice premieres Thursday 11th February on CBS. A UK airdate has yet to be announced.
