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 think it would still be a good investment to still make the TV series, all I hear is great comments on the show and personally I love it. They left it to open for that to be the end. Hopefully they change their mind

What made this show so interesting and unique was the fact that people lived in a world without power. It displayed the struggles that families had while living in a kind of world with the absence of electricity. However, after the power returned to the world at the end of season 1, I became disinterested in the series because the uniqueness of this show was lost. Don’t get me wrong, Revolution was a story and great acting, but in my opinion, the story ended with the return of power. For those reasons, season 2 should never have been made and… Read more »

This was my FAVORITE SHOW of the season! I don’t know how you get your numbers but do you also count online viewership? Excellent show and I would at least like an ending!

Producers always act as though THEY don’t have anything to do with “fewer ratings” when THEY want to SABOTAGE a show!

Producers always put a good show that followed something popular in a worse time-slot… then cancel the show when the ratings fall…
