    Billy, Victoria and Chloe, eh?? I guess they really are killing off Delia. Can’t wait to see Amelia Heinle and Billy Miller in this story! Amazing actors!

  2. Garrett B says:

    Isn’t ABC doing something similar to The Returned?

    • Steven says:

      Yeah, ABC’s Resurrection has a very similar premise.

      • maltru says:

        And Resurrection is based on a book called “The Returned” by Jason Mott, which I’m now wondering if he just ripped off the French show, since it aired in 2012 and his book didn’t come out until this past August…

        • Trip says:

          That would be difficult since the book was first purchased by the publishing company in 2012.

          • maltru says:

            Oh good. I actually have the book downloaded on my Kindle, I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, but I’m glad that there was just a coincidence of ideas than someone ripping someone else off!
