Channel 4's Head of Acquisitions Gill Hay said: "This powerful and innovative French series is already one of the most anticipated shows of the year.

"The first fully subtitled drama that we have broadcast in 20 years, everything about The Returned feels very Channel 4; visceral, compelling and incredibly contemporary, the creators have taken the supernatural genre and re-written the rules.

"It is evidence not just of a creative high point in European drama but of Channel 4's willingness to bring audiences the best and most challenging programmes."
