Could NBC Renew ‘Revolution’ for Second Season?

By | Posted on 09 October 2012

The show, no doubt, holds great promise with JJ Abrams steering it and directors like Jon Favreau of Iron Man fame assisting. Four weeks may seem a bit premature to most people but when you consider it has consistently been one of NBC’s highest rated shows (not to mention the highest rated in its time block), the decision seems like an easy one to make.

The past week’s episode, ‘The Plague Dogs,’ was considerably stronger than past episodes. The acting was more polished, with heavy character development and strong emotional connections. The show has, at times, been panned critically for providing little character build-up and nonstop violence and action sequences. That all seems to be changing if the writers pursue the most recent direction and we are all very happy for the actors, producers, and other production staff.

Revolution focuses on young heroine Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), who grew up in a world without power. After a mysterious blackout rendered all technology useless, Earth has devolved into chaos. Charlie’s deceased father Ben held a key to rebooting the world and passed this on to his friend Aaron (Zak Orth). Now with her Uncle Miles (Billy Burke) and his somewhat lethal friend Nora (Daniella Alonso), Charlie sets forth to find her kidnapped brother Danny (Graham Rogers), who is being held by a warlord (David Lyons) in the hopes that he may reveal the secret to restoring the lost power.

Revolution has been one of NBC’s strongest performers of the fall season and seems to be holding steady in the ratings, too. You can catch all-new episodes of Revolution every Monday night at 10/9C on NBC. Next week’s episode will be titled ‘Soul Train.’ Make sure to check back here at once you’ve watched to recap and review! So what do you think? Will Revolution continue to hold its own? Does it deserve a second season? What’s your favorite part of the show? Weigh in with a comment down below!
