Stan releases haunting trailer for new crime series Clarice – a sequel to horror film The Silence of the Lambs
FBI agent Clarice Starling was first portrayed on screen by Jodie Foster in the 1991 psychological horror film, The Silence of the Lambs.
And now, the compelling character is set to return to screens in Stan’s new crime series, Clarice, starring Australian actress Rebecca Breeds in the lead role.
The trailer, which dropped on Thursday, sees Clarice return to the police force in 1993, one year after her terrifying interview with serial killer Hannibal Lecter.

The teaser starts off by showing Clarice surrounded by press as a voice over says: ‘You are a woman with a very public reputation for hunting monsters.’
It then cuts to Attorney General Ruth Martin (Jane Atkinson), who tells Clarice: ‘It’s time you own that reputation. It’s time to come out of hiding, Starling.’
Clarice is then lured back to work in her old stomping ground of Appalachia, where ‘old ghosts’ and family secrets are set to come back to haunt her.

Once back home, she must also grapple with her abrasive male colleagues as they investigate crimes.
But it could prove dangerous for Clarice, with the trailer featuring a montage of images including a burning barrel being pushed down the stairs and someone being punched in the shadows.
‘I’ll never be safe and neither will you,’ says a mysterious voice over.

Executive producer of the series, Alex Kurtzman, said in a statement: ‘Hannibal is an incredible character, as is [FBI Agent] Will Graham.’
‘But Clarice Starling has a truly unique amazing psychology, and part of why Silence of the Lambs was so wonderful is the film put you so squarely in her shoes.’
Clarice is set to premiere on Stan from February 12
