* GenreBusting: It's been described as the French {{Twin Peaks}}, but there's a lot of soap-opera and dramedy in it. The rhythm at which the weird supernatural mysteries are introduced is intentionally slow, in order for the show to focus on the immediate and practical problems a family would experience if one of their relatives came back from the dead. [[spoiler: Later on it verges on the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]] genre and a good deal of ApocalypseHow]]

A 2012 [[GenreBusting mystery/esoteric french soap-opera]] french TV series created by Fabrice Gobert for Canal+. It is a loose adaptation of the 2004 film of the same name by Robin Campillo, though the series [[AdaptationExpansion expands its original idea]] and plans to create a [[MythArc long-run mystery]] on its basic premise. It proved quite a success for audience and critics alike (in fact it was the most watched original fiction created by Canal+ of all time), winning an international Emmy, and declared best 2013 drama by the Guardian (beating out Breaking Bad, mind you).

* AdaptationDistillation: The 2004 movie had a lot more people resurrecting, this series focuses on five "Revenants" to get a better assessment of their predicament. The movie also didn't provide any explanation for these unexpected resurrections, which the series plan to do eventually.
