“Clarice ss 2”: release date, announcement
Sequel to psychological horror “Clarice” may not happen. Fans of the TV show follow the news and know that in the spring of 2021 the project was supposed to be transferred from CBS to Paramount + to begin work on the season 2. Unfortunately, the negotiations came to nothing. As of November 2022, there is still no information about the future of the “Clarice” TV series. We continue to monitor the news and will update the article as soon as something becomes known.
As much as the creators of the series would like to refer to the film “The Silence of the Lambs”, this is impossible to do. TV project rights belong to another company, and even the name of the great Hannibal Lecter is forbidden to pronounce.
Clarice Starling was disliked at work from the start. As a new employee, she was fortunate enough to solve the first case that did more damage than good. She was able to neutralize the most dangerous criminal, but at the same time she became the object of ridicule of her colleagues. They didn’t want to believe that the newcomer could neutralize the most dangerous serial maniac.
And at this time, Clarice was experiencing severe stress. At night she dreamed of moths. The ones that did not allow sleep in the killer’s hideout. Many called her “Bride of Frankenstein”, but only later will it become known what was meant. The girl was reluctant to go to forced psychotherapy sessions appointed by her superiors. There she pretended to be fine.
In fact, Starling felt terrible, which she didn’t even want to admit to herself. She was so exhausted by the memories of the Buffalo time that the girl did not want to have anything to do with this name. But the FBI leadership has big plans for the clever Starling – she is transferred to a new place filled with serial maniacs, killers and other monsters.
Here Clarice realizes that she has no time to deal with her thoughts. She is forced not only to act in the interests of the investigation, but also to hide the truth from the civilian population. In order not to panic, Clarice has to tell people that the killer has already been found. But in reality it’s not like that. There is someone more serious behind every investigation…
Each next crime is filled with unpleasant memories, but Clarice has to gather the will into a fist and act. The federal agent once again proves to her colleagues that she is capable of becoming a competitor, even with the least work experience. What’s next for Clarice? Will Starling be able to overcome her attachment to a serial killer and the first psychotherapist?..
