SundanceTV Thriller ‘The Returned’ to Open Season Two on Halloween Night

The critically acclaimed French series “The Returned” will open its second season on SundanceTV this fall, with the network announcing a seemingly appropriate premiere night: Halloween.

Season two of the International Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series kicks off at 10 p.m. on Oct. 31, with seven subsequent episodes airing throughout the fall on Saturday nights.

The Returned” takes place 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 re-integrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality.

The second season of “The Returned” picks up six months after the deceased gathered outside the Helping Hand shelter before disappearing into the mountains with Simon (Pierre Perrier), Camille (Yara Pilartz), her mother Claire (Anne Consigny), Julie (Celine Sallette) and the mysterious youngster Victor (Swann Nambotin). Since then, nothing has been heard of them or the police who fought to protect the shelter’s residents.

To give viewers a chance to catch up on the drama, SundanceTV will air a marathon of season one on Sunday, Oct. 18, with back-to-back episodes beginning at 6 a.m. ET/PT. The show is known as “Les Revenants” in France, where it’s produced by Haut et Court and airs on Canal Plus.
