The Returned: Les Revenants, French version, returning for season 2: See teaser

Posted on

Canal +

The Returned — or Les Revenants, as its known in its homeland — first premiered back in 2012 on France’s Canal+ and went on to air on the Sundance Channel in 2013 before taking a years-long hiatus. But now The Returned is making, a, well, return: The eerie drama’s set to debut its second season this fall, the show tweeted (along with a link to a quick, mysterious teaser) Wednesday.

The Returned follows a group of people who were once declared dead but have since reappeared back on earth as living, breathing humans. The show is based on a 2004 French film titled They Came Back (or, again, Les Revenants in French), and has itself been the inspiration for other media: A&E adapted the show for American audiences in 2015, but it was canceled after one season. 

See a teaser for the new season below.
