ABC's Resurrection is not related to or a rip-off of The Returned, but it is adapted from The Returned. Confused yet?

The midseason drama is based on Jason Motts' book The Returned and follows a dead 8-year-old boy Jacob (Landon Gimenez) who wakes up more than three decades later. Its back-from-the-dead premise is not unlike that of the critically acclaimed French series The Returned, which aired on the Sundance Channel, and the show's executive producers made sure to steer clear of it.
