For those of you keeping score on A&E’s upcoming new series “The Returned” then you’ll know that earlier today the show nabbed WRONG TURN‘s Jeremy Sisto in the leading role alongside Mark Pellegrino and Kevin Alejandro. To piggyback on that news is word from Deadline that “The Returned” has just found its leading lady, and she’s a good one! Mary Elizabeth Winstead (pictured), has been tapped as one of the leads in Carlton Cuse’s 10-episode A&E Network drama series “The Returned”, reports Deadline. But that’s not all as Sandrine Holt (“House Of Cards”, HOSTAGES) and Agnes Bruckner (“24”) have also joined the ranks.
The show focuses on…
...a small town that is turned upside down when several local people who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.
Winstead plays Rowan, the girlfriend of late musician Simon (Mat Vairo) who had a very difficult time getting past his death 10 years ago and now will have to adjust to his return. Holt, repped by D2 Management and Innovative, plays Julie, a competent compassionate doctor who is struggling in her personal life. Bruckner plays the sheriff’s chief deputy.
Boom. So there you have it, folks, “The Returned” is moving along quite nicely and is certainly shaping up to be another solid entry into the world of small screen horrors!
