Revolution: Cancelled by NBC, No Season Three

NBC Revolution ratingsHow times have changed. Last year, Revolution looked like it was the big hit of the 2012-13 season. Now, NBC has cancelled it, according to TV Guide.

Revolution revolves around the Matheson family and others who live in a world where there is no longer any power. The cast includes Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, JD Pardo, Stephen Collins, and Elizabeth Mitchell.

Following The Voice, Revolution started out very strong last year but the numbers fell as the season progressed. NBC renewed it for a full season off 22 episodes anyway and relocated it to Wednesdays at 8pm. It’s really struggled in that timeslot and this week fell to a 1.2 demo rating with 3.78 million viewers — an all-time low.

Not surprisingly, NBC has decided not to order a third season. There are two installments remaining and they will air on May 14th and May 21st. The final episode of ABC’s Mixology will also air on the latter date.

What do you think? Did you stick with Revoluton? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled the show or renewed it for a third season?

ANother Example of a GREAT show ruined by EXECUTIVE stupidity! When you have a GREAT show that starts out the gate as a Winner and it DID you don;t WAIT A YEAR to produce the 2nd season you keep it going. People find something else to watch get emotionally invested AS well as Time and don;t go back thinking it’s good enough it will be there later. The Neilsen Rating SYStem is outdated with computers and today’s Technology they should allow US to VOTE on what gets “cancelled” and what doesn’t. let’s CANCEL the Neilsen rating System!!


Vickie Mayer September 17, 2014 at 8:29 pm

I so totally agree with you. Well said.


Kaycee Wyatt September 12, 2014 at 11:30 pm

I can’t believe they canceled it! we watched all the time in suspense. They should have at least did one more season, and ended it, with some sort of ending, instead of leaving us hanging.

Originally purchased the entire 1st season. Loved it,
Couldnt wait for the 2nd season to come out as a set.
Bought it as soon as i found it, not knowing they had
Cancelled the series! I feel like i have been cheated out
Of my money! At the least they should have resolved the

This was the only show I watched on TV and I really enjoyed it, heartbroken they couldn’t finish it at least!


Felisha Barker September 10, 2014 at 12:28 am

I am EXTREAMLY upset… I absolutely loved this series… I actually finally got the guts to watch the last episode about an hour ago… I was holding off wanting them to bring it back but I finally realized they weren’t going to do that…. I understand it didn’t have very good ratings but the people that watched the show fell in love with the series and the characters… I just wish they would have added one more season… or at least ended the last episode differently… I mean you are going to sit there and fix the patriot problem (Which I was jumping up and down about) but then make the final part about tons of people coming to the nano… I mean at least show us within a season what would happen with the nano and if it is a success or does Aaron and Percilla (I think I spelt her name wrong) stop them somehow… I mean seriously… This last episode was awesome don’t get me wrong… but the last 5-10 minuets of it just pissed me off… you want to know why you lost ratings? You killed off Danny… that is specifically why… My mother and I started watching this show together and we LOVED IT!!! But once you killed off Danny my mother stopped watching it and I continued watching it… I know this is long winded and I know it makes no difference to Nbc but I just wished they would AT LEAST make one more season… who knows maybe they eventually will… I mean maybe that is why the ending is the way it is

Very upset they’re not brining this show back. I never missed an episode. I recorded every one and watched in excitement of next show. Someone needs to pick this show back up.


Larry Basso September 8, 2014 at 9:54 am

I loved the show and now I am very very disappointing. Really wanted to see how it was going to play out. I hated Wednesdays but still recorded and watched at a later date. Very sad. Hope that someone brings it back

This is really bad news for me. I looked forward to watching Revolution every week. Please
bring Revolution back. How can I view the final episodes?
