Hot on BBC Four’s international successes, Channel 4 is also set to air a new eight-part French supernatural crime-thriller, Rebound (Les Revenants).

The critically acclaimed ratings hit is set in a small Alpine village, in the shadow of a vast dam, and tells the story of a crowd of men, women and children who find themselves in a state of confusion, trying to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years and no-one is expecting them back.

Chief Creative Officer Jay Hunt, commented C4’s delight “that channel defining pieces like Dennis Kelly’s Utopia and Rae Earl’s Mad Fat Diary will be returning to the channel, alongside the acquisition of an exceptional new French sci-fi crime thriller, Rebound.”

Rebound will air on Channel 4 this Summer.
