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.

    I loved this show it was different, than all the other post war types of shows. I loved the characters. Bring it back, is my vote. I have been waiting for it to come back on and then I found out it was cancelled. NOOOOOO I love this show. Just like Farscape and Firefly, the shows I love get canceled

    I really did not understand the cancellation of this series. There was so much to be told in their story and it is left incomplete on a network. Have yet to read the comic of it, not the same as live characters.

    I wish they would renew it instead of leaving its viewers with a sense of incompletion. I don’t understand the logic behind getting a viewing audience built up and then just cutting them off without completion. The Longmire series did this as well and was a great disappointment. I hope Revolution will come back..

      Longmont was picked up by Netflix and should have a new season out this fall. Google revolution comic and you will get a link to the 4 comic editions that create the conclusion. Not what we desired but the writers and Eric Kripke gave us closure. Would still live to see a movie or new series pice up by someone.

    I loved the series and was waiting this season for it. I enjoyed the characters and the acting was very good. I didn’t know it was cancelled. It was one of the best shows on TV. It’s time to bring it back. I’m tired of the stupid game shows, reality shows that are out there these days.

    I have to get up very early in the morning because of my work. I had never watched REVOLUTION until I got Netflix.
    I watched every episode called my family and friends and now we are all watching it. I’ve seen it twice— and intentd to watch the entire 2 seasons again !!!! It’s one of the best story I have ever seen. I can’t stand the thought that we are all now left in mid air,
    I loved every minute of the two series. Why in the world is it being cancelled?? I’m very upset.
    Is the decision to cancel cut in stone? If not, why don’t you put it back on and make a lot of people happy!?

    Finally something worth while watching. Everything else you have is trash. I cannot understand why a show this good would be cancelled. I am sick of you Hollywood freaks. You are the scum of the earth.

  8. Patty Hahn says

    when I fond out this show was cancelled I was so upset. I love this show. I know many people who also were upset. I look forward to this coming back on please renew the series. thank you.

    It should not have been cancelled without some fitting resolution. But that’s the way the EggHeads over the studios do……unless it a series about a homosexual family or a worthless trash family that spend 60min fighting & cursing at each other. Maybe another Vampire/zombie based series. We need 8-10 more of those!
    Really makes you wonder what goes on in those locked doors of the meeting rooms…….their probably acting out the episodes of the gay families themselves. To bad there aren’t any real Macho men or Butch Women in those rooms who enjoy shows like Revolution.
