SundanceTV has released the full-length trailer for the thrilling second season of the International Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series “The Returned.” After a three-year absence, creator Fabrice Gobert is excited to debut the second season at a perfect time considering the themes of the series: Halloween.
SundanceTV’s official synopsis reads: “The second season picks up six months after the deceased disappeared into the mountains with Simon, Camille, her mother, Claire, Julie and the mysterious youngster Victor. Since then, nothing has been heard of them. Now, Adèle is about to give birth to Simon’s child, part of the town is still ﬂooded and the dam remains under surveillance. Rumors abound that the dead have returned, but the authorities refuse to believe them. The rare witnesses have chosen to remain silent or are not taken seriously, among them Léna and her father, Jérôme, who have not given up hope of ﬁnding Claire and Camille. But when a mysterious man named Berg pays a visit to the town, it appears he knows more than he claims.”
Season 2 of the French psychological thriller will make its debut Saturday, October 31, at 10pm. Check out the suspenseful trailer above, as well as the “creepy” new poster.
