Critics and MHz Choice subscribers agree: WWII drama, A French Village, is a “sensational” series. Beginning in 1940, the German occupation of a small village in central France forces the residents to endure five years of rationing, fighting and betrayals, all while straining to keep some semblance of their existence intact. The war shatters their lives, but a few of them, even in the shadow of destruction, reach out to find fleeting moments of connection, hope and love.

The byword of the series is “To live is to choose,” and in each episode, and each season, the war intensifies, options narrow and collaboration thickens. ~NY Times, 8/29/13

* A note on A French Village “seasons”:

Although A French Village was produced in 12-episode blocks, some of the episodes were aired in France in six-episode blocks. Thus, the number of “seasons” can vary depending on whether one is referring to a six-episode season or a 12-episode season.

For the purposes of MHz Choice (and to keep our DVD releases of this series consistent) we’re releasing them all in 12-episode blocks, or “seasons”. So, currently five (12-episode) seasons of A French Village have been produced, for a total of 60 episodes – and a further 12 episodes (episodes 61-72) are planned to begin filming summer 2016 in France.
