The Returned is set to return again to Channel 4 for a second series.

The French supernatural thriller has been a hit for the channel in the UK and is the first subtitled drama they have shown in more than 20 years.

Now the broadcaster has struck a deal to acquire the rights to the follow-up series, which will be shown next year.

Set in the French Alps, the series follows a town thrown into chaos by the reappearance of its long-dead residents and the threat of a cannibalistic serial killer.

It was created by Fabrice Gobert, features an atmospheric soundtrack by Mogwai and is based on the 2004 film Les Revenants by Robin Campillo.

The Returned hurtles towards its chilling conclusion this Sunday (July 28) and Channel 4 have confirmed fans can look forward to its return, with filming beginning early in 2014 for an air date later next year.

More details about the second series are yet to be announced.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

You're moody and sensitive, especially when it comes to family matters. Although you should make a big change, emotional ties to home are holding you back. Stop making excuses for your failure to act. Just take a leap of faith. Your nearest and dearest will learn to live without your constant presence. Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
