A&E Sets Production On ‘The Returned’

Supernatural Series Based On French Film `Les Revenants’

A&E Network is developing a new suspense series dubbed The Returned, the network announced Friday.

The series, based on a popular French suspense series inspired by the feature film Les Revenants, will focus on a small town in which local people presumed dead reappear and attempt to resume their lives, said network officials.

The Returned takes an incredibly unique approach, filled with suspense and twists and turns, to the subject of the living dead,” said David McKillop general manager and executive vice president of A&E Network in a statement.  “Part mystery, part thriller; The Returned is a perfect complement to A&E’s unique brand of scripted storytelling.”
