Michelle Forbes Joins Cast of A&E’s ‘The Returned’

Michelle Forbes has joined the cast of A&E Network’s “The Returned.”

The redo of French drama “Les Revanants” hails from A&E Network Studios and FremantleMedia North America. Series has generated heat on both sides of the Atlantic for its moody take on a story of a small town upended when several people presumed dead return without any awareness that they were gone.

SundanceTV has aired subtitled episodes of the original series that aired on Canal Plus.

Forbes will play Helen Goddard, a mysterious woman who is one of the returnees. Carlton Cuse, exec producer of A&E’s “Bates Motel,” is shepherding “Returned” with Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”). Series has a 10-episode order from A&E. Jeremy Sisto, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino and Kevin Alejandro are also set to star.

Forbes is becoming a go-to player for cult-fave genre properties. She was most recently seen in BBC America’s “Orphan Black” and is in the midst of shooting a supporting role in the last two “Hunger Games” features: parts 1 and 2 of “Mockingjay.” She was also a regular in the first two seasons of AMC’s “The Killing” and appeared in “Battlestar Galactica.”

Forbes is repped by UTA and manager Laura Berwick of Berwick and Kovacik.
