Prospects for #Clarice appear bleak as negotiations between the ViacomCBS streamer and co-producer MGM reach stalemate— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) June 11, 2021
MORE: No viable path for Clarice to continue on CBS as the broadcast network already committed to a full slate of series for next season https://t.co/3wPytO8END
The Silence of the Lambs spinoff was supposed to move from CBS to Paramount+ but that appears unlikely as a stalemate has been reached in negotations between the streamer and MGM. It can't return to CBS either as the channel has a full slate for the upcoming season.
The entire complicated situation which involves contradictory reports from both sides is detailed at the source; "Depending who you talk to, MGM either abruptly stopped good-faith negotiations that were closing in on an agreement, or the studio opted to walk away after being offered a 'mediocre' deal it could not accept."
