ICYMI: Season 2 Of The Returned Is Airing Now On Sundance.
With the massive hype and excitement surrounding last Saturday's premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead, there was another Halloween premiere that kind of got pushed off to the side: The Returned.

Season 1 of this excellent French Supernatural Drama premiered on U.S. shores waaaay back in 2013, and it blew us away. It was so good, that A&E had their own version of the show on air by 2014, which failed at being anywhere near as good as the original. Failed miserably.

So far, Season 2 has been just as good as Season 1 was, and in some ways, we like it even more. It got off to a bit of a slow start (due mainly to the fact that we forgot a lot of what happened in Season 1, and it took us a minute to get our bearings), but it doesn't take long for it to hit its stride, and when it does, it's captivating as hell.

We still don't know why the dead have returned, but it looks like we're getting closer to finding out, and the story is taking some interesting twists, especially with the introduction of the new characters. And of course, everything is presented to us in the creepy, quiet, foreboding way that has come to make The Returned stand apart from 99% of other TV Shows.

This show is about as good as it gets, on foreign shores or here in the U.S., and it should definitely be on your weekly Must Watch lists.

Check out the opening credits, which features the fantastic theme song from Mogwai, below. 

If you have yet to see this A+ show, Season 1 is streaming now on Netflix, or you can buy the Blu-ray HERE.
