Last year, ABC began airing Resurrection — a series about people returning from the dead, based on the book The Returned by Jason Mott. It did well in its first season but tanked in the ratings in season two and is sure to be cancelled. Now, A&E has unveiled their own show called The Returned, based on the French TV show Les Revenants. Will it survive to see a second season or will it be cancelled? Stay tuned.
On The Returned, the residents of a small town have their lives turned upside down when some of their loved ones appear to return from the dead. The cast includes Mark Pellegrino, Tandi Wright, Jeremy Sisto, India Ennenga, Sophie Lowe, Mat Vairo, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kevin Alejandro, Sandrine Holt, Dylan Kingwell, Aaron Douglas, Rhys Ward, Leah Gibson, Agnes Bruckner, and Michelle Forbes.
