Netflix resuscitates The Returned

Internet TV service Netflix and FremantleMedia International have completed a global deal for The Returned, a new drama based on the critically acclaimed and International Emmy-award winning French supernatural thriller Les Revenants.  

Executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Raelle Tucker (True Blood), The Returned, a Netflix original series, will launch on March 10 in all regions outside of the US and Canada. Episodes will be available weekly to members to stream within 24 hours of the US broadcast.  The series will be available on Netflix in the US and Canada next year.

“Carlton and Raelle are incredible storytellers whose previous shows, Lost and True Blood, intrigued audiences around the world. We can’t wait for our global audience to see Carlton and Raelle’s interpretation of The Returned, a sensation in its own right that we think is perfect for Netflix,” says Erik Barmack, Vice President of Global Independent Content at Netflix.

The Returned follows the residents of a small mountain town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.
