60 minutes

In a small Alpine village, in the shadow of a vast dam, a small group of men, women and children find themselves in a state of confusion, trying to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. This is a homecoming like no other. In French with English subtitles.

You'll find that the US version starts off with the same script, just different actors, but if you watch this first (or simultaneously) you'll see the huge difference in the quality of acting and the overall feel of the show. This one is like a fine wine, and the US one is like a decent house wine. Both are good, but you'd obviously rather have the fine wine.

I don't know why Sidereel has named this "The Returned", it's confusing when searching for the US version.. this version should actually be called "Les Revenants", and put the returned in brackets next to the title. It's funny how this ended back in 2012 and NOW have been renewed for a second season since the US version has been aired, 3 years break.. LOL!

The Returned is a poignant dark drama about the unexplained resurrection of a mountain town's dead residents. This French series delivers a profound character driven story without becoming trapped in it's own premise. The acting and audio in this show is so strong that the subtitles become optional. Absolutely brilliant.

Awesome show. Is the only good show on TV on Saturday for us women. The rest is sports for men. Although some women like sports, I don't , at least not on TV except for boxing. I also watched Resurrection which they also dumped on second season and left a big cliffhanger there, shame on them producers. The Returned is original from France and was also dumped too on the US but Sundance Channel saw a good in it and got it. Thanks to them, we can keep on watching because is very good. It starts again on Oct. 31, 2015. 8 or 9PM not sure of the time but its about a town where dead people are starting to resurrect and coming home and they don't know why. Some think is an alien thing, some demonic thing but nobody knows really why are they coming to live again. Mystery and sci-fi.

The season 2 will be on air the sep'28 in France not in november.
Why a season 2... Why they did'nt add 2 episodes to season 1 and conclude it ?
The new season is poor, just one "twist" in the 6 first episodes.
I'm sad to see a good idea so poorly exploited.

The Returned started with an interesting premise, but the show shifted too much focus onto the characters it had already introduced rather than bringing you a drama that analyzed, say, more than six characters. Although it's well-written and the acting is fantastic, The Returned should have been an ongoing series rather than a miniseries
