Sourcebooks Acquires US Rights to Seth Patrick’s The Returned: A Novel



As fans of the French version of “The Returned” (aka “Les Revenants”), we’re looking forward to seeing what A&E does with its interpretation, which premieres on March 9th.  If you are, too, then read on for the details of Sourcebooks’ US release of The Returned: A Novel by Seth Patrick in April.

From the Press Release:
Sourcebooks has acquired US rights for THE RETURNED: A Novel by Seth Patrick. THE RETURNED is based on the popular and International Emmy Award-winning French suspense television series “Les Revenants,” which inspired A&E’s forthcoming US adaptation that will premiere on March 9, 2015.

Carlton Cuse (“Bates Motel” and “The Strain”) and Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”) are the executive producers of A&E’s “The Returned” with a cast that includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim), Mark Pellegrino (“Lost”), Sandrine Holt (“House of Cards”), Jeremy Sisto (“Suburgatory”), Sophie Lowe (“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”), Kevin Alejandro (“Arrow”), and Michelle Forbes (“Battlestar Galactica”).

Pan Macmillan UK originally published the novelization of the series in 2014 after the show attracted nearly eight million viewers over its eight episodes and quickly became a cult phenomenon with high-profile fans such as Stephen King. Sourcebooks will launch the US edition this spring, bringing this popular storyline to American fans.

Seth Patrick’s THE RETURNED focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several locals, who are presumably dead after a devastating accident, suddenly reappear. The families of the dead believe their prayers to reunite with their loved ones have been answered, but what they don’t know yet is that the victims from the accident are not the only ones to return. Their arrival coincides with a series of horrific murders, which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past…

THE RETURNED will hit bookshelves in North America on April 7, 2015.
