French Zombies Are Coming To America!
The supernatural drama The Returned (Les Revenants) - that was a huge hit in France - has been imported to America and will start airing in its native tongue on Sundance Channel on October 31st.
This gripping eight-part series featuring the undead is based on the feature film "Les Revenants" and premieres on Thursday, October 31st at 9PM ET/PT, airing weekly on Thursday nights. The French television series has been praised by The Independent as “one of the greatest, creepiest, most compelling shows brought to…TV screens in 2013.”
“The Returned” is based in an idyllic French mountain town, where 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.
