Fans first met the character of Clarice Sterling in the 1991 psychological horror film The Silence of the Lambs. And in 2021, CBS released the spinoff series about following the character after the Buffalo Bill case. As the ending of the first season left us with many unanswered questions, now many fans are eagerly waiting for what will happen next in Clarice Season 2.
Clarice is an American psychological horror series that debuted on the CBS network in February 2021, The Silence of The Lambs spinoff series is a stand-alone story of the famous detective from the franchise Clarice Sterling.
What Will Happen In Clarice Season 2?
The first season of the series featured Clarice going back to the Buffalo Bill case. In that, we saw her joining the Violent Crime Apprehension Program (ViCAP). However, what happened after joining the team only added up to the trauma that we saw her already dealing with in the entire season. Meanwhile, she is not done with the Buffalo Bill chapter of her life yet.
Shocking facts from the case resurface from time to time, interfering with her current work. Clarice investigates different cases as a member of the squad in the first season while her personal and professional worlds continue to intersect.
Clarice spent the first season attempting to steer Agent Starling away from the two serial killers with whom she is inextricably linked, Buffalo Bill and Hannibal Lecter. Hannibal was never shown or referenced on Clarice for legal concerns. Instead, the show centered on Starling dealing with her lingering anguish over Buffalo Bill.
Clarice also utilized Thomas Harris’ work The Silence of the Lambs as a springboard to flesh out Starling’s past, revealing a more intricate family life than she described to Lecter. Furthermore, Starling had erroneously constructed her self-image around her deceased father, and Clarice had suppressed memories of his transgressions.
When the series returns with Clarice Season 2, it will likely continue the Clarice Sterling’s story after the events of the first season. Our protagonist will be on a journey of self-discovery in the second season. On the other hand, she will keep working as a ViCAP agent. The line of work she is in regularly puts her life at stake. This might continue in the second season. The season might also give a more detailed look at Clarice’s past.
The cast of the psychological thriller series features Rebebecca Breeds in the titular role of Clarice Starling. The series also stars Michael Cudlitz playing Paul Krendler, Lucca De Oliveira in the role of Thomas Esquivel, and Kal Penn playing Shaan tripartite. Meanwhile, other cast members in the series features include Nick Sandow as Murray Clarke, Devyb A. Tyler appearing as Ardelia Mapp, and Marnee Carpenter essaying Catherine Martin’s character. When the series returns with Clarice Season 2, most of the main cast members are expected to return in their respective roles. On the other hand, we might also see some new cast members appearing.
When Will Clarice Season 2 Return?
The first season of the thriller series premiered on CBS on February 11, 2021, and the season came to an end with the season finale premiering on June 24, 2021. It has been about a year since the premiere of the first season. However, the CBS network has not made any announcement yet about the show’s renewal for Clarice Season 2.
But we know that the first season has done particularly well on the network. And on top of that, The Silence of the Lamb franchise also has a huge cult fanbase. Therefore, based on all these facts, much like many fans of the show, we remain hopeful that the series will soon return for Clarice Season 2.
