Resurrection Bosses: The Dead's Return Is Not About "Why," But "What If?"

Landon Gimenez and Omar Epps

ABC's Resurrection sees dead people come alive again, but it's not related to The Returned. Except it is.

The drama, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c, is based on Jason Mott's best-selling book The Returned about people who come back from the dead. That's not to be confused with the critically acclaimed, similarly themed French series on Sundance Channel, The Returned, which is based on the French film Les Revenants and is being adapted by Lost's Carlton Cuse for A&E, or the fact that Resurrection refers to its walking dead as The Returned.

Among the upcoming shows that revolve around a dystopian future: The CW's The 100 (debuting Wed., March 19, at 9/8c), which follows a group of juvenile delinquents who are shipped from a space station back to Earth in order to see whether it's inhabitable a century after a nuclear holocaust. (The network also just ordered a pilot for The Messengers, about a group of people who are killed, then resurrected, after something crashes into Earth.)
