In an idyllic French Alpine village, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. Buried secrets emerge as they grapple with this miraculous and sinister new reality, struggling to reintegrate with their families and past lovers. But it seems they are not the only ones back from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders that bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past... A gripping, stylish mix of real and surreal, the highly cinematic The Returned (Les Revenants) features a wide range of top French film actors and a haunting, atmospheric soundtrack by Scottish post-rock band Mogwai. The Returned was also a smash hit last year on French television and the highest rated subtitled drama on any UK channel in nearly a decade.

There are so many things that are fantastic about this show. The acting is superb and the story line is anything but predictable. Definitely not your average zombie trope. Actually, I wouldn't even call them zombies, they're more just... undead. I don't want to give anything in the story away, but if you're into the more quiet, eery, mysterious aspect of the supernatural then this is definitely worth a look.
I am now into the second season and it just keeps getting better, I highly recommend!!
That quibble aside, though, this is really good, and I enjoy it much more than the U.S. interpretation that aired last season. The only barrier is the language, but if you don't mind subtitles, give this a spin - you'll probably love it.
