The first season of French drama series The Returned (aka Les Revenants) will receive its UK premiere on Channel 4 on Sunday June 9th at 9pm, it has been announced.
The Returned is based on the 2004 feature film They Came Back and is set in a small Alpine village, where 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. What is more their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. The 8 episode drama series is produced by Haut et Court TV & Canal+ Original Programming and stars Anne Consigny (César Award for Best Supporting Actress, 2008), Clotilde Hesme (Trois mondes, Les Chansons d’amour), Celine Sallette (House of Tolerance), Guillaume Gouix (Jimmy Riviere), Frederic Pierrot (Polisse) and Samir Guesmi.
