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?

I wish I had watched it from the beginning. I just finished it on Netflix and am heartbroken it is cancelled. It is honestly the GREATEST show I have seen in a long time. It’s a show that everyone would love if they watched it. The story lines are great, full of action and quick paced. There really isn’t another show like it. I pray to God it gets picked up by another network like TNT. This show does not deserve to be cut so short.

Sigh. Boo NBC, now MUCH less likely to start watching any of your new shows, because you won’t let them develop. With streaming services, millions of people can now get hooked on shows and “catch up”, but you’re too stupid to realize it.

Good ol’ NBC, at it again. This is the same network that also cancelled Start Trek TOS, so I am not surprised by this news. Too bad this network seems to like to pull the plug on good shows. Been doing it for a long time.
