The resurrected, or "returned" are those residents of Arcadia that have come back from the dead.
Jacob Langston is resurrected 32 years after he dies. He reappears in China. Immigration agent Martin Bellamy (later revealed to also be a returned) is the one who brings him from China to his parents house in Arcadia, Missouri. Later on Caleb Richards, the father of Maggie Langston's best friend, returns as well.
