Just a couple of days after NBC renewed its hit freshman drama, Revolution, the series is adding a big name to its executive producer cast. Farscape’s Rockne S. O’Bannon has signed on as an executive producer for Season 2 of the hit series, which will premiere on NBC next fall. Additionally, CSI: New York’s Trey Calloway will be taking on a role as a co-executive producer for next season.
Whether or not the lights come back on in Revolution remains to be seen, but either way, NBC won't be turning the lights out on this series anytime soon. Revolution was among the five dramas NBC renewed today for next season. Also set to return are Grimm, Parenthood, Chicago Fire, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Silly Revolution. The lights went out in Georgia long before tonight, so you might want to put more thought into your titles. Goodness knows they rarely make sense in relation to the episode. Now something like, “The Militia Went Down To Georgia, It Was Looking For Some Souls to Steal,” is something I can get behind, even if it is a little wordy.
For the most part, on network television, it was business as usual last night, with most of the regularly scheduled programs airing as planned. But due to the Boston Marathon bombings yesterday, NBC opted to preempt the planned episode of Revolution and air a news special featuring Brian Williams at 10:00 p.m. instead. We were left to wonder how the network would fix this last-minute bit of re-scheduling. Would they find another time to air the episode between now and next Monday?
In the wake of the tragic events during the Boston Marathon today, TV viewers may expect some last minute changes to the Monday night primetime line-up. At this point, it looks like CBS is planning on running things business-as-usual, however NBC has reportedly pulled tonight's episode of Revolution from the schedule, and will air coverage of the Boston tragedy in its place.
Revolution, Revolution, Revolution… [Shakes head disapprovingly] Still hasn’t quite figured out story telling in terms of episode structure and creating as few holes in the plot as possible. It does take a step in the right direction after last week, however; but only a small step.
After losing Danny at the end of last week’s episode of Revolution, things were looking up for the group. Well, not really for them, but for the viewers. Unfortunately, things did not get better.
After months of waiting, anticipation for Revolution’s return is left hardly satiated as the one major gift to the viewers doesn’t forgive all of the holes and problems in the episode. With the turret winding up under the base of the helicopter, things were looking grim at the end of the fall portion of Revolution. Had the shot continued, clearly everyone in the field was going to be mowed down in a shower of bullets and blood. Right?
While some shows are winding down for the season, NBC's Monday night is just getting started. Not only does tonight mark the return of The Voice for a new season (and two new judges!), but Revolution returns with its first new episode since the fall. The new trailer reminds us that exciting things are ahead for both shows. But if that's not enough to whet your appetite, maybe the first 8 minutes of Revolution will do the trick? Watch it ahead!
NBC hasn't quite finished rolling out their winter/spring slate, with Revolution and The Voice poised to return next week, and Hannibal set to arrive early next month. But the network is already prepping their season closers for the spring, and for some shows, the end is very near. That includes Whitney and 1600 Penn, both of which wrap up next week.
For the colder states, March can feel like an eternity, as winter drags on and we look forward to spring. Winter is here, but it's also coming, in the more figurative, fantastical sense. Game of Thrones returns for its third season in March. But the HBO fantasy-drama is just one of the ten TV highlights worth looking forward to as March gets underway. There's also Celebrity Apprentice, basketball, The Voice and a couple of anticipated season finales, among some other reasons to set your DVR.
Much concern has been brought up by fans and critics alike over whether or not NBC can maintain interest in its freshman drama with a multiple-month hiatus. Now, NBC has plans in the works to produce animated webisodes of Revolution for fans who have been missing their regular Monday night programming.
Revolution has brought a 24 alum on board to play a President. Leslie Hope, who played Jack Bauer’s wife on the first season of the Fox drama, will be joining the second half of the freshman season of NBC’s new post-apocalyptic series.
As you may have noticed, Netflix has been adding some shows to its library a bit sooner than usual following the series' original airdate. For example, FX's American Horror Story's first season went up last fall, about a year after it aired, and Scandal's first season was made available streaming on Netflix just months from its original airing on ABC. From Netflix's recent announcement about the deal they've signed with Warner Bros. Television Group, it looks like we'll be seeing some other great, currently-airing TV shows on Netflix in the future.
Despite a four-month hiatus between Revolution’s winter finale and spring return, NBC has done a great job of keeping the network's popular freshman drama at the forefront, marketing often via outlets like Facebook and Twitter to remind people the show will be back soonish. During the show’s TCA panel this weekend, NBC released a teaser for the second half of the season that does a good job of reminding us where Revolution left off and where the series will pick back up.
