If you don’t already have THE SUNDANCE CHANNEL on your TV line up, you may want to remedy that and soon. The channel announced today that during this haunt season they will be airing the French supernatural drama THE RETURNED.
It’s an 8 part mini-series that will debut on the channel on Oct. 31st.
The press release explains: “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.”
As I mentioned above, the show will debut on Halloween night at 9 PM on SUNDANCE and will then air consecutive Thursdays at the same time.
Here’s a trailer from a while back when the show made its UK premiere:
