News & Interviews for The Returned: Season 1
Besides the scenery, what's best here are the characters, and their lives -- or unlives -- of quiet desperation.
If a subtitled show is bad, you'll turn it off, but if it's good, it envelops you more swiftly and wholly than the very good show in English you check your email while watching. The Returned is very good. Let it have your brains.
The Returned, in French with subtitles, is beautiful, riveting and above all thought-provoking.
The whole creation, by Fabrice Gobert, is first-rate supernatural drama more than a mere horror show.
At it's heart, The Returned [a] is chilling tale. Time will tell how [it] does in an American market, but if its rave reviews overseas are a sign, viewers will brave the subtitles for a truly great find this fall.
The Returned raises the possibility that the undead could also come back in a very different form. Throw in a serial killer and you have a series that sounds terribly grim, but is written and performed so superbly that it turns out to be riveting.
The Returned...moved glacially but packed a lot of story into its atmosphere-saturated opener.
There's a grownup sensibility to The Returned that doesn't pause for the kind of cheap shock in which shows like The Walking Dead specialize.
The Returned is so smart and captivating, you won't even notice the French subtitles!
As the characters intertwine and their backstories emerge, the suspenseful ambiguities of this cosmic puzzle only intensify.
'The Returned' poses more questions than it answers -- a second season is in the works -- but its restless spirits aren't easily shaken off.
Audience Reviews for The Returned: Season 1
Jun 13, 2020This show has such great reviews I went in with far too high of expectations. Les Revenants is beautifully filmed TV series with excellent visuals, and overall good acting, but there is little substance beneath the style. It is like the creators had a lot of ideas for cinematically striking scenes and put them all in a blender. I enjoyed it until about halfway through, when I started to realize the series was going nowhere. The character development was stagnating. Each episode introduced new puzzling elements that were never resolved, and often not even mentioned again. By the end what was billed as "not your average zombie show" had devolved into exactly that, with a creepy demon-zombie-leader causing havoc with no justification. I believe shows can be character-driven, or plot-driven, or even theme-driven (though this one is hard to pull off), but they can't be "none of the above." Les Revenants is... cinematography driven? At least, that's the strongest aspect of the show. It has neither well-developed characters, nor a satisfying plot, nor anything in particular to say. Unfortunately, good cinematography alone does not make for a good show.
Mar 22, 2020An original take on the undead, which gets progressively creepier and more interesting
Jan 16, 2020Destept la inceput dar nu prea stie ce sa faca la final
Dec 19, 2019Super entertaining! Great sceneries, scenario is quit good and grasping ! Loved it!
Jan 11, 2019Most horrible show i saw in recent times. All the characters are constipated and logic is thrown out the window. Avoid such shows.
Aug 27, 2018Intriguing to start with but ends up being lots of random weirdness that is never explained. Not worth starting.
Dec 08, 2017Fucking hell. I think the first series is the best tv show of all time. It's beautiful and interesting and so sad. There's never been anything made like it and I don't think there ever will be again. It's perfect mystery. Stop at the end of series 1 though and just accept you'll have questions unsolved. And why not eh? What the hell is the universe after all....?
Oct 20, 2017Really good looking show and scenery, such a creepy vibe. Found the ending a bit meh but the build up was pretty decent. The soundtrack is top notch.
Sep 19, 2017Original take on returning from the dead. Love it but very complex and leaves a lot of questions. :)
Jul 29, 2017It's a little slow and quiet during parts but I am at the edge of my seat and holding my breath for most of the show.
