"The Returned" (TV show) on A&E is a supernatural drama series that is a remake of 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. The French series airs on Sundance Channel in the U.S. and was a smash hit for France's Canal+ and the UK's Channel 4.

The A&E series 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.

The cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Smashed"), Mark Pellegrino ("Lost") , Jeremy Sisto ("Suburgatory," "Six Feet Under"), India Ennenga ("Treme"), Sandrine Holt ("House of Cards"), Agnes Bruckner ("24"), Sophie Lowe ("Once Upon a Time in Wonderland"), Tandi Wright ("Nothing Trivial"), Mat Vairo ("Revolution"), Kevin Alejandro ("True Blood"), Dylan Kingwell ("The Tomorrow People"), Aaron Douglas ("Battlestar Galactica"), Dakota Guppy ("Rush"), Leah Gibson ("The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"), Michelle Forbes ("The Killing"), Rhys Ward ("The Strain"), Scott Hylands ("V"), Terry Chen ("Bates Motel"), and Roger Cross ("24").

"The Returned" is co-produced by A+E Studios and FremantleMedia North America in association with Haut et Court TV SAS, the producer of the French series, for A&E Network. Carlton Cuse ("Bates Motel") wrote the first episode, and he and Raelle Tucker ("True Blood") write and executive produce the series. Executive producers are Cuse for Carlton Cuse Productions, Tucker for Angry Annie Productions and Thom Beers, Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk for FremantleMedia North America. FremantleMedia will distribute the series internationally, excluding the U.S. and Canada, which will be distributed by A+E Studios.
