The Returned, a Netflix original and the latest drama from Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Raelle Tucker (True Blood), will premiere outside of the U.S. and Canada on the platform March 10, following its March 9 debut on A+E.
Thanks to a deal between Netflix and FremantleMedia International, the 10-episode series, created by Fabrice Gobert and based on the Emmy-winning French supernatural thriller Les Revenants, will be available to Netflix subscribers outside of North America, prior to its debut on the continent in early 2016.
The series, co-developed by A+E, is similar in plot to The 4400: it focuses on the community of a small mountain town after some long presumed dead citizens suddenly reappear. The incident brings both happiness and distress to the local townsfolk, as strange phenomena begin to occur.
Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino, Jeremy Sisto, India Ennenga, Sandrine Holt, Agnes Bruckner and others, The Returned is produced by FremantleMedia North America, in association with Les Revenants producer Haut et Court TV SAS.
Executive producers include Cuse for Carlton Cuse Productions, Tucker for Angry Annie Productions and FremantleMedia North America’s Thom Beers, Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk.
