Season Finale Saturday, December 12 at 10 PM ET/PT on Sundance TV
In the season finale, Jerome has joined his wife and daughters in the domaine, but the Returned prevent them from leaving. Thanks to Berg's research, the military have found a way to lower the water level.
"The Returned" takes place in an idyllic French mountain town, where a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality.
The second season of “The Returned” picked up six months after the deceased gathered outside the Helping Hand shelter before disappearing into the mountains with Simon (Pierre Perrier), Camille (Yara Pilartz), her mother, Claire (Anne Consigny), Julie (Céline Sallette) and the mysterious youngster Victor (Swann Nambotin). Since then, nothing has been heard of them or the police who fought to protect the Helping Hand shelter's residents.
In present day, Adèle (Clotide Hesme) is about to give birth to Simon's child, part of the town is still flooded and the dam remains under surveillance, with the army providing logistical support for those residents who have chosen to stay. 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 (Jenna Thiam) and her father Jérôme (Frédéric Pierrot), who have not given up hope of finding Claire and Camille. But when a mysterious man named Berg (Laurent Lucas) pays a visit to the town, it appears he knows more than he claims.
New characters thar were introduced this season include – Berg (Laurent Lucas), Milan (Michaël Abitboul), Audrey (Armande Boulange) and Virgil (Ernst Umhauer) – join returning characters Toni (Grégory Gadebois), Serge (Guillaume Gouix) and Lucy (Ana Girardot).
