TV show description:
This dramatic science-fiction TV series explores the question “What would you do without it all?” A family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology — computers, refrigerators, air conditioners, planes, cars, phones, lights — has mysteriously stopped working. Electrical power has simply gone away. The show also revolves around the idea of family — both the family you’re born into and the family you choose.

Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) is the headstrong, curious and daring daughter of Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Ben Matheson (Tim Guinee). Ben is hiding a mysterious secret about the blackout. Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips), a medical doctor, became involved with him following his wife’s death.

When Charlie’s younger and thoughtful brother, Danny (Graham Rogers), is kidnapped by militia leaders, she must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), a former US Marine and warrior who’s living as a recluse.

Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed and how or if it will ever return.

The rebel group includes fighter Nora (Daniella Alonso); General “Bass” Monroe (David Lyons), a former Marine who served alongside Miles; and Aaron (Zak Orth), a former Google executive and a computer genius who’s ill-prepared for the rigors of the technology-less world.

Captain Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito), a cultured former insurance adjuster turned Monroe Republic leader and Nate Walker (JD Pardo) is a member of the militia who has conflicted feelings for Charlie.

Series Finale

Episode #42 — Declaration of Independence
Miles (Billy Burke), Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Monroe (David Lyons) launch an attack on the Patriots, but must improvise a risky new plan in order to halt the oncoming war between California and Texas. Out for revenge, Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) sets his sights on President Davis (guest star Cotter Smith). Meanwhile, Aaron (Zak Orth) and Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) efforts to save Priscilla (guest star Maureen Sebastian) from the nano-tech has unexpected consequences.
First aired: May 21, 2014.

Contrnt inappropriate for an early time slot but well written and casted. It was one of my favorite network shows. I was looking forward to its return. It deserves a proper ending.


Carol May 8, 2015 at 11:23 pm

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show!!!! PLEASE keep it going!!

Just started watching Revolution on Netflix… Please don’t let it be canceled. Please bring it back. This show could actually go in for years! If the power does come back on, how would everyone “re-conform.” So many obstacles… The whole legality vs morality thing. It could take several seasons for balance to be restored. Would love to see it! Hello… Have been watching WalkingDead for how many years? Bring Regolution back!

I think we deserve to know how revolution ends. it’s not fair that we are loyal fans watching every week and not know how it ends. Please give us an ending. OR, you can just bring it back on.

please dont cancel revolution every time i get into a tv series they always cancel them if ur not gonna finish a story dont start in the first place Revolution is one of the top ten series i love so please dont cancel

Please don’t cancel it! I agree that the story was coming to a close. They were revealing so much information so quickly within two seasons that yes it look like it was wrapping up but don’t just cancel, leaving us hanging I hate when tv series do that. It makes sense if a main actor of the show dies and they can’t continue…but if there is still a way to wrap things up with at least one more season I say they should do it!

The Revolution has earned closure. Don’t just cancel. There so many ways you can end this series.


Suzanne April 30, 2015 at 12:41 am

They are making 4 comics to put an end to this. The writers are kind enough to do this for the fans. Not the same, but better then nothing. At least me closure.

I don’t know who at nbc keeps bumping their head but this is why I do not like to watch regular tv any more. I once waited to see what was going to come on next. now I wait to see what is coming on net flix. ratings do not always tell the true story.

Would have helped ratings to keep #Relocaterevolution in the same slot on Monday nights. An 8:00 pm time slot was not appropriate as it is family hour an Revolution had grown up content and then keeping it off the air for weeks at time. NBC set it up to fail. But the fanbase couldn’t be silenced and while we would have loved a series it couldn’t happen at this time. We will get a 4 issue digital comic book closure partnered with DC Comics. First issue is May 2, 2015. It is my hope that this will be a hit and Eric Krepke will turn it over to a cartoonist and have Revolution live on with Eric following at a distance. Could be as big as The Walking Dead. Without the restraints of NBC and commercial tv it will be fantastic.

You are absolutely correct. This show had a huge following but people didn’t know when it was coming on and there were so many breaks in between new episodes airing that people were confused and lost interest. It is quite unfortunate because it was the best thing on television, in my opinion.


maggie April 21, 2015 at 3:21 pm

Bring it back…… Its a very well written and scripted show. They have great actors. No reason to cancel this.


Patricia Caulder April 20, 2015 at 9:48 pm

Please, please, please do not cancel Revolution or a least give it an ending!!!!!


Tammi April 20, 2015 at 9:43 pm
