Has anyone started watching this? I am hooked because the topic of death and life after death (in a more realistic vs zombie apocalypse way) intrigues me. I believe it is based on another show, not sure of the dynamics of that show. It reminds me of Daniel Water's teen zombie books...

It's a remake of a French show. I watched the first episode but I didn't like it although I like some of the actors. Maybe I will watch the rest at some points.

I'm watching the original French version and totally hooked on it.

I really liked the French version, but I've not really got any interest in an American remake tbh (still scarred by the damage done by the remake of The Killing...). Be interested to know what others think and whether they stick to the same ending?

Ive read that they have a different ending and also a difference into who the children are, whether they're the dead bodies or a new "thing".

What is The Killing a remake of?

I love the French version of The Returned (and I hear a new season is coming out on Netflix). Didn't even realize there was another American version, there was also the network TV Resurrection which is also based on the same basic idea and was vaguely amusing.

I tried to find Forbrydelsen on Amazon Prime, and it made me think it was really it, but it was the American version. I might buy it, just for the Danish-ness.

Just started watching the American version on Netflix....up to episode 3 and enjoying it so far. Think I'll give the French one a go, too.

We have different Programmes to U.S. Netflix so if it's not showing on yours, that might be why. What are you watching it on?
