Universal City, Calif. – NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke announced today that they would be picking up a full season of adventure-drama Revolution, as well as new comedies Go On and The New Normal.
Revolution has had a great start with ratings to support this decision for a full season. The show debuted on September 17, 2012 with a rating score of 4.1 (the highest since ABC premiered V on October 3, 2009 at 5.2). Most popular among the 18-49 demographic the show remains strong with an average 3.6 rating since its premiere.
Salke praised the series stating, “We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience, ordering a full season of this show is a pleasure.” She continued, “And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn’t ring, and the pace of life slows down – if only for one hour a week.”
How would you handle the loss of it all? No more cell phones, cars, computers – nothing. From the brilliance of J.J. Abram’s Bad Robot Productions and Supernatural’s Eric Kripke comes a story of a family struggling to make their way through the new American landscape. Desperate to reunite her family a strong-willed and skilled Charlie Matheson is on the hunt to find her brother who has been taken by the local Militia. She is joined by her uncle Miles Matheson (Billy Burke, Twilight Saga) who is also being hunted by the militia.
Revolution combines the right amount of family drama and everyday American strife in this new world without power. You can tune in and slow down yourself once a week on Mondays at 10/9C.
