After years away from the genre, May and Wrong Turn‘s Jeremy Sisto has landed a lead role opposite Mark Pellegrino and Kevin Alejandro in Carlton Cuse’s 10-episode A&E drama series “The Returned”, says Deadline.
A late afternoon update also has The Thing‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead, pictured below, starring.
An adaptation of the acclaimed French series, “Returned”, from A+E Studios and FremantleMedia, “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.”
Sisto plays Peter, a psychologist who runs a grief support group for people in the town who are struggling with the loss of loved ones from a bus accident four years ago.
Variety says Winstead plays Rowan, the girlfriend of musician Simon (Mat Vairo), who has to deal with her late boyfriend’s return.
