The walking dead are taking over Sundance Channel on Halloween night as the French zombie series The Returned is set to debut on the cable network. The eight-part supernatural series, based on Robin Campillo’s They Came Back (2004) and created by Fabrice Gobert, will air on Thursdays at 9pm ET/PT.
“We decided to take zombies to a new and utterly original level— we made them French!” stated Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel President. “The Returned is smart entertainment that shocks and entertains at every turn. We think our audience will love how this series grounds the supernatural in deeply human emotions.”
The Returned Plot:
In an idyllic French mountain town, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past.
