Bloody Disgusting is being told that A&E has given the greenlight to ten episodes of the new original scripted drama series “The Returned.”
“ ‘The Returned’ focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences. As families are reunited, the lives of those who were left behind are challenged on a physical and emotional level. Interpersonal relationships are examined with intrigue and depth as strange phenomena begin to occur.”
“Bates Motel’s” Carlton Cuse wrote the first episode, and he and Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”) will write and executive produce the series.
“The Returned” is based on the popular and International Emmy-award winning French suspense series adapted by Fabrice Gobert and inspired by the feature film, Les Revenants, directed by Robin Campillo.
Casting is already underway.
