A&E is developing an Americanized version of the French series Les Revenants (The Returned) — but we strongly recommend that you check out the original first.

Set in a small French village, the show chronicles a group of people whose lives are turned upside-down when their loved ones start coming back from the dead. Among the most heartbreaking storylines: Camille, a girl who died in a bus crash four years prior, is stuck at age 15 even though her twin sister Lena is now 19; and Simon, a groom who dies just before his wedding, only to come back and discover that his fiancée and her new husband are raising his daughter.

Season 2 of the French version is currently in production, and Mark Pellegrino and Jeremy Sisto have been cast in Carlton Cuse's A&E adaptation.
