While many fans wait for (perhaps in a futile attempt), for Hannibal to be revived, we still have a series based around Clarice Starling coming, and now that series has its Clarice...
...Via Deadline, Pretty Little Liars' Rebecca Breeds has been cast as Clarice Starling in CBS's Clarice series! Based off of the Thomas Harris character featured in Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, the project is being written and executive produced by Alex Kurtzman (Sleepy Hollow TV series) and Jenny Lumet (The Mummy 2017).
"Set in 1993, a year after the events of 'The Silence of the Lambs', the series is a deep dive into the untold personal story of 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."
Originally played by Jodie Foster in The Silence of the Lambs, Breeds has a lot to live up to, as that role won an Oscar for Foster.
At this time, there is still no suggestion that Hannibal Lecter will be a part of the series.
