The Mind Reels Chats: TIFF15 – Les Revenants Showrunner Fabrice Gobert


If you missed the amazing French series, Les Revenants (The Returned) when it aired on the CBC, you can chain-watch all 8 episodes of season 1 now on Netflix. That’s what I did as soon as Sue and I were offered the chance to chat with showrunner Fabrice Gobert during TIFF.

We chatted about the emotional impact of the show, the way they approached the series and taking on the zombie genre in a very unique, and often beautiful way that doesn’t compare to what we’ve seen in the genre before. Focusing on characters to move the story forward, it’s very easy to get wrapped up in the series, and while season 2 is already airing in France… we may have to wait a little longer over here in North America.
