It Is Not Too Late To Say Bonjour To “The Returned,” Catch Up With The Series That Has Fans Exclaiming “Oui!”

Sundance Channel To Marathon All Episodes Of The Hit French Series Throughout The Month Of December

“The best series of the fall, possibly of the year.”
-Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times

“A superbly stylish and scary French drama with no equal in its genre.”
-Nancy deWolf Smith, Wall Street Journal

Viewers can still get hooked on the engrossing, stylish eight-part French horror series that Entertainment Weekly gave an “A-” andcalled “eerie, tense, and highly addictive.” Beginning Sunday December 1st, each week, viewers will have the chance to catch-up on all previously aired episodes during marathons of  “The Returned” in anticipation of each week’s brand new episode on Sundance Channel. Please see the full schedule listed below. As praised by Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter, “The Returned” is “a visual pleasure and ultimately proves to be a challenging change-up to the zombie genre, with its smart dialogue, provocative emotions, wonderful acting and intellectual curiosity about love and loss.”

Airing Thursdays at 9:00 PM, “The Returned” takes place in an idyllic French mountain town, where a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past.
