Clarice serves as a ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ spin-off instalment. The pilot episode premiered on February 11 this year. However, the show did not perform well in terms of revenue and television ratings. Despite its poor performance, the makers decided to renew it for a sophomore season.
The spin-off show is created by the duo of Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. It consists of a dozen episodes. It is a joint production of MGM Television and CBS Studios. Check out what we know about the upcoming season of Clarice!
Clarice: Plot Synopsis
The plot focuses on Clarice Starling. She was one of the prime characters in The Silence of the Lambs movie. The show takes place sometime after the events of the latter film. Clarice’s experiences with the cannibal, Hannibal Lecter, have psychologically affected her. The traumatic encounter with Lecter has left her mentally scarred. That’s why her department orders an administrative leave for her.
Along with the leave, she also undergoes a therapy program to improve her mental state. However, her impressive work record forces a newly formed VICAP group to recruit her. The group operates as a task force to tackle all the serial killing scenarios. She gets hired to catch a new and dangerous serial killer in town.
Clarice Season 2: Expected Plot
No official plot points for the upcoming instalment have been revealed by the makers so far. But we can expect agent Clarice Starling to get involved with new and dangerous cases. Of course, we cannot ignore the chances of the arrival of a new serial killer here. The audience may witness the infamous Hannibal Lecter in the upcoming instalment. However, his involvement has not been confirmed by the studio yet.
Where will Clarice Season 2 be premiered?
The first season of Clarice appeared on CBS. It did not perform well in terms of ratings and earnings. Additionally, its critical reception was mostly negative. The bland narrative, unconvincing performances, and terrible execution of the plot were some of the points that were severely criticised.
Despite all of the above-mentioned shortcomings, the network renewed the show one more time. It is a surprise that the network showed some faith in it. It will release on CBS. Additionally, it will get dispatch straightly to the Paramount+ streaming service. We believe it is a good step considering the recent condition of the show.
Clarice Season 2: Cast
Once again, the audience will watch Rebecca Breeds portraying the lead character of Clarice Starling. Alongside her, we have Kal Penn and Michael Cudilitz playing Shaan Tripathi and Paul Krendler. The remaining cast members include Lucca De Oliveira, Nick Sandow, Devyn A. Tyler, Marnee Carpenter, Shawn Doyle, Jayne Atkinson, Time Guinee, and Douglas Smith.
One of the primary antagonists of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal novel universe, Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb, served as the primary villain of the debut season. Simon Northwood played that infamous character in the show. This time, we will get a new antagonist. It also means that a new performer will portray that character.
Clarice Season 2: Release Date
We can expect the second to drop sometime next year. However, it is not confirmed yet. The production work for the upcoming season is yet to begin. We will update this section as soon as we get any official announcement from the studios regarding the second season.
