A&E’s new drama series “The Returned” will premiere on March 9 immediately following the Season 3 premiere of “Bates Motel,” the network announced on Friday.
“The Returned,” executive produced by “Bates Motel” EP Carlton Cuse and Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”), is based on an Emmy-award winning French series, which was adapted by Fabrice Gobert from feature film, “Les Revenants,” directed by Robin Campillo.
The series focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead, suddenly reappear. Their return brings both positive and detrimental consequences.
A+E Studios and FremantleMedia North America are producing the show in association with Haut et Court TV SAS, the producer of the French series, for A&E Network. Thom Beers, Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk are executive producing for FremantleMedia North America.
