The Silence of the Lambs features a cannibalistic serial killer Bill, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and an FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling. The series focuses on Clarice a year after the events of the 1991 movie, sharing the same title as the novel. The movie was highly acclaimed with a huge profit at the box office.

Below are the release date, plot, and every other detail of Clarice season 1 that you need to know for now.
The Silence of the Lambs Movie Ending:
After the extremely dangerous twists and turns, Clarice shoots the serial Buffalo Bill, who was later identified as Jame Gumb. Soon after his death, Clarice receives a phone call from Dr. Hannibal Lecter at the FBI Academy graduation party that she was attending. Lecter calls her from Bimini airport and wishes her well. He also says that must go because he is having an old friend for dinner. The movie ends with Lecter trailing an unsuspecting Dr. Frederick Chilton into the crowd and then disappearing.
What to Expect From the Plot of the Series?
The story will be set in the year 1993, a year after the events of the movie. The series will feature the depths of the untold personal story of Clarice Starling.
The series will start a year after Clarice gains her fame for the case of Buffalo Bill, on which she consulted with Dr. Hannibal Lecter. But, the series will avoid any mention of Dr. Hannibal Lecter due to the distribution rights issues.
We will see her returning to the field and pursuing serial murderers and sexual predators. The series will combine all this with Clarice’s struggles as a woman in a male-dominated profession.
Additionally, she will navigate the high-stakes political world of Washington D.C.
The series will also follow Clarice’s challenging childhood and the family secrets that haunt her to this day.
The novel reference in the series will include the rescue of the kidnap victim Catherine Martina and her mother. The series also uses the movie as a reference point. However, we will see a few changes in the original story of the novel.
The series will feature the FBI raids on Waco and Ruby Bridge and the first World Trade Center bombing, that happened shortly after 1993.
