French Zombie Series ‘The Returned’ Series Premiere Date Announced by Sundance Channel

This Halloween, the Sundance Channel will be bringing us zombies…in French!

The network announced that they have acquired the U.S. rights to air the eight-part acclaimed French drama The Returned. Created by Fabrice Gobert and based on the feature film Les Revenants, The Returned is set in a small French town where random people return to their homes and families without realizing that they have been dead for years. As they struggle to reintegrate themselves into the lives of their loved ones, they are also faced with the possibility that a serial killer rose from the dead with them.

“‘The Returned’ epitomizes the very best of the crop of outstanding international television productions finding its way onto US screens,” says William Schopf, President of Music Box Films (producers of The Returned). “We couldn’t be more excited about working with our partners at the Sundance Channel to introduce this extraordinary series to American audiences.”

The Returned will premiere Thursday, October 31st on The Sundance Channel and continue to air new episodes on Thursday nights after that. Will you be tuning in?
