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.
Mark Pellegrino will star in A&E's adaptation of The Returned, Deadline reports. The casting will reunite the actor with co-executive producerCarlton Cuse, who helmed Lost during Pellegrino's tenure as Jacob.
As if Stephen (Robbie Amell) and Cara (Peyton List) didn't have enough to contend with, there's a new baddie coming to town. Gangster Squad's James Landry Hebert is joining The Tomorrow People as The Wraith, a mysterious hitman who teleports past security and reads his victims minds, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

On The Tomorrow People, Ultra is the ultimate enemy. The mysterious organization hunts down those with powers and either eliminates them or takes their powers away — even if they're only children. But the Tomorrow People's biggest enemy might not be as bad as it seems.
"There's an idea that it might've started with...

Supernatural will always be the story of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), but over the years the series has introduced dozens of other characters who have found beloved homes in the fandom. And on Tuesday's episode (9/8c, The CW), Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) returns again when she calls on the Winchesters to help investigate four missing virgins. (Hey, at least it's a step up from dating Crowley!)
Robbie Amell, Peyton List
It didn't take long before The Tomorrow People brought Cara (Peyton List) and Stephen (Robbie Amell) together. The dynamic duo shared a steamy kiss — and eventually more — at the close of last week's episode, but don't expect a happy ending so soon. Cara will...
Cara (Peyton List) isn't the only one running from her past. Tuesday's Tomorrow People reveals that John (Luke Mitchell) has more than a few dark secrets of his own — including one that could threaten his place among the Tomorrow People.
While a young John was initially happy with his place at Ultra, this week we'll learn the painful reason he couldn't continue playing good son to Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) any longer. "Jedikiah essentially experimented on [John] ... and the side effects of that and the effect that it's had on John's life have been pretty tumultuous," Mitchell tells TVGuide.com.
Aw, heck. Is it really worth making a fuss over The Middle's 100-episode milestone? It hardly seems in character for a family like the Hecks of Orson, Indiana. When she's reminded that they volunteered to drive a giant cow float in Orson's centennial parade, Frankie (Patricia Heaton) whines, "This is what happens when we drink: We sign up for stupid committees. Or get Brick."
But as Orson itself expresses in a self-deprecating new town motto: "Why not?" This episode (Wednesday, 8/7c, ABC) truly is cause for celebration, as TV's most heartfelt and hilariously relatable family sitcom reflects on what brought Frankie and Mike (Neil Flynn) to Orson in the first place, while giving their lovably imperfect offspring a chance to shine in clever-to-wacky subplots. (Sue's attempt to make Darrin jealous by cozying up to her flamboyant BFF Brad is especially genius.)
Has Stephen (Robbie Amell) really joined the dark side?
The Tomorrow People premiere saw the newly discovered mutant teaming up with Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) at Ultra, but don't worry, Stephen fans. He's simply taking a page out of Sydney Bristow's book and working as a double agent — just don't expect it to be easy.

The CW's beyond-generic The Tomorrow People feels like yesterday's news — and not just because it's adapted from a '70s British sci-fi series. Turns out this isn't as durable a property as Doctor Who, or maybe the reboot is just that bad. Cut from the same angsty pattern of so many CW supernatural shows, Tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/8c) offers up a duller than usual gaggle of pretty, overripe CW teens-in-their-20s with superpowers. The "Tomorrow People," we learn in an endless prattle of exposition, are a cluster of genetic mutations whose special gifts emerge upon adolescence. Forget pimples. This subculture specializes in the "three T's": teleportation, telepathy, telekinesis. They forgot "tired," "tepid" and "too too derivative," which much better describes the experience of meeting these lost kids.
