Carlton Cuse’s American adaption of acclaimed French series The Returned (Les Revenants) for A&E is expected to start filming in the Vancouver area on [Update: June 16th]. What is it about? In the French series, broadcast on the Sundance Channel in the U.S. and Space Channel in Canada, a group of people return to their homes in a small mountain town, only to discover they have been dead for several years and no one is expecting them to show up. As the back-from-the-dead struggle to reintegrate with their families and past loves, it stirs up secrets and creates new mysteries. Meanwhile, their resurrection coincides with a series of gruesome murders. Has a serial killer returned too?

Secrets. Serial killer. Sinister Reality. It sounds like another perfect fit for Vancouver’s X-Files creepiness, just like Carlton Cuse’s other A&E series Bates Motel, which starts filming a third season here in October after The Returned wraps.

A&E’s ten-episode The Returned is not related to ABC’s back-from-the-dead series Resurrection.
