Despite 'Hannibal' being one of the most daring TV shows of the last ten years, the show sadly met its demise in a much more quiet fashion than any of the show's victims.
In fact, the new spin-off series 'Clarice' can't even mention Hannibal Lecter due to the complex rights issues between MGM, Dino De Laurentiis, and CBS. However, as the producers themselves has said, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Indeed, a recent interview by producer Alex Kurtzman revealed that the show won't feature Lecter because the character has been "done so well by so many people that it didn't feel fresh for us." Instead, 'Clarice' will focus on the aftermath of 'Silence of the Lambs', and what happened next to Clarice Starling.
'Home and Away' star Rebecca Breeds will take up the role previously filled by Jodie Foster and Julieanne Moore, and see her investigating all sorts of grisly murders, including one that looks awfully similar to Buffalo Bill.
The new series is set to begin on CBS in the US on February 11th, but as of now, no air date has been set for the show on Irish TV or streaming services.
Here's the trailer.
