by at . Comments

A&E is set to bring more dead people back to life.

The series announced today that it will remake the critically-acclaimed French drama Les Revenants (The Returned), which itself was based on the 2004 feature film Les Revenants (They Came Back).

Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Raelle Tucker (True Blood) will produce A&E's upcoming version of the series.

The Returned (which aired on Sundance) chronicles a small town that reacts in shock and confusion when multiple residents who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear show up again.

Yes, just like ABC's Resurrection.

A&E has ordered 10 episodes straight to series.
