A&E’s The Returned, the remake of the acclaimed French supernatural TV series, has cast Kevin Alejandro (Arrow, True Blood) and confirmed director Keith Gordon (Dexter, Waking The Dead).

Deadline reports that Alejandro, who played Jesus Velasquez in True Blood and Sebastian Blood in Arrow, will join the previously announced Mark Pellegrino as “the town’s authoritative but accessible Sheriff Tommy Moran” in the series about a small town where some of the dead are mysteriously returning to life.

Also joining the cast are Once Upon A Time In Wonderland‘s Sophie Lowe (who played Alice) as “Lena, one of Jack’s (Pellegrino) two daughters,” and Mat Vairo (Revolution) as “one of the returned, Simon, a musician who comes back 10 years after his death.”

The Returned is going straight to series for A&E.
