The Returned is a French eight-episode series dealing with strange events taking place in a small mountain town. The mystery starts when a handful of people from all different walks of life try to return home but find themselves confused when all is not as they expect it. Each in turn discovers that they have been dead for various lengths of time, some just a few days and others as much as thirty years. They are all exactly the same as the day they died, and have no memory of anything in between then and now. As they and their loved ones struggle to cope with their unexpected and inexplicable return, things get more sinister as a series of murders take place. The evidence seems to point to a long dead serial killer, suggesting that not all of the returned are benevolent. Created by Fabric Gobert based on the film of the same title. The series has gotten favorable critical response and received multiple awards including an International Emmy and a Peabody Award.
