    I absolutely loved season 1 and understand production problems, but, now that you are a success don’t let this happen again. Not many people will wait more than 2 years for a show to return especially only 8 episodes. Will be keeping fingers crossed.

      Not to mention if you don’t have sundance channel. I am waiting for Netflix or another option maybe amazon. But come on we need to know what happens next!

    omgoodness! I have been awaiting the return of ‘The Returned’! I was flipping through my guide last night and saw a rerun of an episode from season 1 and I realized then just how much I missed this show. Please hurry and put season 2 on for us here. Thank you!

      just watched the French version. Loved it better than American version! Got the whole first season from my local library!

      I Know right! Anytime they copy a show its never as good. Do they not understand its everything the actors the tone the locations you cannot re-package that!

    Grew up 45 mins from where season one was filmed. One of the most beautiful places. French version was very well done. Hope season 2 comes soon.

    My husband and I enjoyed the 1st season and have been waiting for the 2nd. Don’t take it off the air, it seems like every good series gets dumped. Getting fed up with TV

    I so confused! I was a big fan of season 1 and couldn’t wait tonight to plop down and watch the season 2 opener. All of the cast has changed and it is now in French with English subtitles. I’ve been searching Internet for an explanation,but I can find no info. Does anyone know what happened? Will they be showing the English version?

    • Jamie

      I am so confused also. That’s why I’m on this post, to find out what’s going on. Hopefully, someone knows. Thanks!

        It’s a french television series. The Returned (U.S. version) was cancelled by A&E after one season.

    Never fails when something interesting airs, A&E has developed some very good TV viewing then nothing whats wrong with the premise of excellant writing , gets one hooked to watch then ………..

  9. Rossetti

    I wonder why A&E would cancel the best show they ever aired! Also, it wasn’t advertised enough. What a bummer, look at the current reviews for SEAS 1 on Netflix…Almost solid 5*.

    A&E do you realize how rare it is to get so many people to love one thing?!

    I just bing watched this in 2 days and was looking for season 2….not going to happen???
