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 love Revolution! Anyone else who loves this show, join the Revolution! The revolt is on, and we’re campaigning for Revolution to be picked up by a better, more supportive network who will appreciate Revolution’s millions of dedicated fans! TNT, SyFy, Netflix, Hulu… #RelocateRevolution

    We have so many competition/reality type shows any more that this was refreshing, thanks for cancelling something that quite a lot of people I know are watching. It may just need to be put in a better time slot. Well, with not very many choices left, will be watching more movies. Kind of getting tired of all this reality TV…

    Please renew! There is no other shoe like this one on, and it is very good. I wait for it every week!

    I loved this show and am very disappointed that NBC canceled it and never gave it a good time slot and took such a long hiatus that viewers forgot about the story which was complex but very unique, well acted and entertaining. Another bad mistake by the networks that have no clue about programming continuity.
