A drama series airing on Sundance Channel has been picked up for a second season. Deadline.com reports that the cable channel ordered season two of the French drama “The Returned” (“Les Revenants").
The report describes the series as “probably the hottest global drama format at the moment.”
After debuting the first eight-episode season this past fall, Sundance will air the second season beginning in late 2014. Season two is about to go into production, the piece adds.
The drama is about a French town where people who have been dead for several years suddenly return.
“’The Returned’ has proven to be an incredible addition to our slate,” said Sundance President Sarah Barnett. “We were delighted with the overwhelming critical and fan response to the series and we expect that season two will continue to seduce and chill audiences.”
