The Returned series 2 coming to Channel 4 in late 2014

Channel 4 has confirmed that superlative French import, The Returned, will be back on the channel in late 2014 for series two...

Dance, good people, lay floral wreaths on standing stones, and sing praises to the heavens, for the TV Gods are truly smiling on us today.

Not only has the news arrived that UK viewers will legally be able to watch Breaking Bad's final eight episodes the day after the US broadcast (can I get a hallelujah?) via Netflix, but Channel 4 has secured the rights to series two of The Returned, which, in the absence of Breaking Bad, bears the title of The Best Thing On Television At The Present Time.

Series one of the French import concludes this Sunday night, and the currently-being-written second series is due to arrive on our shores (or more properly, our tellies) in late 2014. That's quite a wait, we know, but there's plenty to keep us occupied TV-wise between now and then. We're off to sacrifice a vintage 1979 Christmas edition of the Radio Times to our cathode-ray deities now, to ensure that remains the case.

I really hope they wrap up the majority of the mysteries in the first series - with 1 episode to go there are still too many questions and no answers.
If they are leaving it until the next series then it will be a major disappointment and anti-climax, not to mention infuriating for us viewers to invest time in something that doesn't deliver.

Too many TV shows nowadays start with a good premise but fail on delivering a satisfying resolution.

In UK Law I dont think it is actually a criminal offence to download copywrited material as long as you dont make copys and sell it. Just sayin' ;)

Dont read any further if you want to go in 100% blind .....................................

There is a conclusion as its a remake of a french film from about ten years ago, but its not in this series.

Good Work!! Thanks

Fantastic news! I'd wondered if C4 would air the second series - I got the impression that it hasn't been pulling in a ton of viewers, unfortunately.

``We're off to sacrifice a vintage 1979 Christmas edition of the Radio Times ...."

Ah , yes the 1979 Christmas Radio times , now more commonly known as the sex offenders register .

(Ho Ho Ho)

And the name of this french film is.....?

The English title is "They Came Back", but the original French title is the same as the series "Les Revenants" AKA The Returned......
