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.
