The Returned (“Les Revenants”) is a TV series filmed on location around the Annecy area of the French Alps, and at the Tignes Dam. The drama is making a return to television screens with a new series of episodes. The Returned is a story of the paranormal and is set in a town in the mountains of France where many people mysteriously come back to life after being thought to be dead.

Amazingly their bodies have not aged, even though several years have gone by since their deaths. As well as a number of strange phenomena that happen, including  power outages and the water levels of a local reservoir suddenly dropping to reveal the bodies of animals and the steeple of a church, a gruesome murder attempt takes place that has a similarity to the work of a serial killer from the past.
