New on Netflix: The Returned and More

The Returned - Camille

If you are one of the many who missed watching one of last year’s most compelling and entertaining series, The Returned, then now is your chance to enjoy the French drama’s debut season. The show will be made available to stream on Netflix starting February 24. One of our favorites of 2013, The Returned flew a bit under the radar despite the great critical acclaim. Airing on the growing, but still slightly obscure Sundance Channel, and the fact that it is a French import (people do not like to read their television) may not have helped it to appeal to a mass audience. But with this new exposure through Netflix the show will hopefully gain the acknowledgment and attention from viewers that it warrants. The Returned was truly one of the most satisfying and engaging television experiences of the past year and a refreshing take on the now exhausted zombie genre.

Also premiering this February 24th on the streaming site is the final half-season of AMC’s Breaking Bad, re-watch Walter White’s incredibly tense final chapter in what could be considered one of the best seasons of television ever. Other television titles available this month are the premiere season of Bates Motel, the first three seasons of The Borgias, and the complete series of Queer as Folk, all made available on the first. The second season premiere of Netflix’s own House of Cards on February 14, and season seven of the USA show, Burn Notice on the 15th.
