The popularity of the undead is still soaring amongst fans, so much so that everyone is mining away at any material that could be successful here in the States. That being said, Variety reports that an English language remake of the French show “Les Revenants” is on its way!
Distributor FremantleMedia Enterprises has acquired rights to the series; and the English-language version, known as “They Came Back,” will be produced by Brit screenwriter Paul Abbott, whose credits include “State of Play” and “Shameless,” and his shingle AbbottVision.
“‘Les Revenants’ focuses on a group of men and women returning to their homes in an Alpine village. What they do not yet know is that they have all been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back.”
Originally developed as a film, “Les Revenants” was adapted for TV by producers Haut et Court for pay TV company Canal Plus. The series bowed last fall when, according to FME, it averaged 1.4 million viewers across eight 60-minute episodes.
