Americans get ready! The French hit “zombie-drama” Les Revenants is crawling up stateside after a stellar run in the UK last year. The English version will be called The Returned, and while the original series’ composers, Scottish rock-band Mogwai, were expected to take on the American incarnation, NME has just announced that producer Nicolas Jaar will instead be scoring the first season.
Apparently, according to NME, Mogwai was rumored to be collaborating on the US remake, but the show’s rockstar producers—who’ve previously brought you Lost, Bates Motel, and True Blood, collectively—chose Jaar instead. Although, Mogwai has confirmed they will continue their involvement with the French version promising to return for its second season.
