Exciting news about all things genre-related continue to pour out of San Diego Comic Con. Fans of NBC’s Revolution got a first look at the highly anticipated season 2 and now the rest of the world gets the same chance.
Season 1 ended with the power coming back on and ICBMs being fired at Atlanta and Philadelphia; quite the cliffhanger. The only way to stop a nuclear disaster is to turn the power back off, but will it happen?
I’m not telling, but if you watch the trailer you’ll see that a whole lot is going to happen in season 2. The action and suspense have been amped up for the sophomore outing of Revolution. Check it out and see if you’re ready for Revolution to return on September 25 at 8/7c in its new Wednesday time-slot.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the show, simply forgot what it was about, or just feel like reading it over again, here’s the premise:
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why?
Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down, the lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it?
On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.
From director Jon Favreau and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, comes a surprising “what if” action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally.
