'The Returned' is coming to Netflix on March 10th, less than 24 hours after its airing on A&E in the US. The streaming service has signed exclusive UK rights to the show.

The hour-long show focuses on a small town that sees several local people who were presumed dead suddenly reappear, having not aged and being completely unaware of their own fatalities.

Their return brings with it all manner of consequences, some positive, some not so positive.

The 10-episode series is written by Carlton Cuse ('Lost', 'Bates Motel') and Raelle Tucker ('True Blood', 'Supernatural').

It's an adaptation of a French series called 'Les Revenants', and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino, Jeremy Sisto and India Ennega.

The deal with distributor FreemantleMedia International sees Netflix take exclusive rights to the show everywhere except for in the US and Canada.

It will come to Netflix in those territories next year.

"Carlton and Raelle are incredible storytellers whose previous shows, 'Lost' and 'True Blood', intrigued audiences around the world," said Erik Barmack, Netflix's vice president of global independent content.

"We can't wait for our global audiences to see Carlton and Raelle's interpretation of 'The Returned', a sensation in its own right that we think is perfect for Netflix."
