Some of you might recall the French zombie movie from 2004 - LES REVENANTS aka THEY CAME BACK. Well, it has been re-imagined by the French as a TV series - LES REVENANTS (2012). Season 1 consisted of 8 episodes and it has been renewed for a second season coming in 2014. The show aired in the U.K. and now it is coming - under the title THE RETURNED: Series 1 - to U.K. DVD on September 9th.
Those familiar with the 2004 feature film might know what to expect. I put "zombie" in quotes because if you are looking for a THE WALKING DEAD-type zombie fix, then this French show probably won't fit the bill. I'd go in expecting more slow burn "supernatural drama" as opposed to "horror".
Apparently the series has been picked up for English-language remake.
