The French cinematography best products are not a rare case. One of them is a TV series under the title “The Returned” or as its French version proposes “Les Revenants”. The series is within a whisker of cancellation, however. Stay tuned in the case the situation gets better.
Making a sketch of the series
The French drama “The Returned” is added to the genre of mystery dramas with supernatural beings depicted there. The series is a brainchild of Fabrice Gobert, a screenwriter who has created the script grounding on 2004 French feature movie They Came Back (Les Revenants).
The team of executives here by Haut et Court as well as Caroline Benjo, Jimmy Desmarais and Barbara Letellier. The other side of the crew, specifically the performing one is composed of Fr?d?ric Pierrot, Anne Consigny, C?line Sallette, Samir Guesmi, Gr?gory Gadebois, Clotilde Hesme, and Guillaume Gouix and others.
The series is aired on various channels all over the world including Canal+ in France, SundanceTV in the USA, and Channel 4 in the UK. Surely, the premieres were not set simultaneously with the first one being held at the close of 2012 year in France and then in the UK and the USA in the following year.
What is the storyline?
We are not set to get into particulars but the main aspects of the story should be exposed certainly. So here, we are dealing with the plot set in a small town perched in France. This town is situated in the mountains and people living there once become shocked by the very unusual events.
All of a sudden, dead people start to reappear becoming alive again. What are the reasons for that? It is a terrifying thing indeed. What are the residents going to undertake?
Following the latest updates
The latest update of the series was the second season which premiere had been slated for September 2015 on the French home channel. The audience enjoyed the entire 8 episodes with the duration of about one hour. The debut in the UK, as well as in the USA, was held a bit later in October.
The international response from the audience is lavishly favorable. The success is proved also by some nominations and awards, including Peabody Award and nomination for 18th Satellite Awards as Best Television Series or Miniseries. So the series is a much promising project that should be developed in future, as well as expanded in terms of the amount of episodes in each season.
What is about the third season?
Though there is no info available regarding the future of the project, we may not worry about this as there is still some time before the traditional September launch of new episodes. So we should wait until the end of this summer comes and only then we will be on the right to demand the so needed info about The Returned (Les Revenants) season 3 release date.
