Mark Pellegrino is joining the A&E drama The Returned, an adaptation of the critically acclaimed French series about long-presumed dead people who suddenly begin to reappear, EW has confirmed.

The former Lost star will be reunited with Carlton Cuse, who served as showrunner on the ABC hit. Cuse is writing and executive producing with Raelle Tucker (True Blood).

Pellegrino will play Jack, the father of twins who died in a school bus crash at age 16 and has reappeared, four years later. Deadline first reported the story.

The 10-episode series is a joint production between A+E Studios and FremantleMedia North America.
