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.

Meanwhile, Aaron (Zak Orth) and Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) efforts to save Priscilla (guest star Maureen Sebastian) from the nano-tech has unexpected consequences.

    NBC has an absolute winner with Revolution. It would be a big mistake to even think about not renewing this show. The cast is remarkable.

    This is the BEST show EVER. Do not cancel. WTF!!! Are you nuts even thinking about it? I love this show. I agree with everyone. DO NOT CANCEL. I am about to give up on TV if this show is canceled like so many other good shows. Cancel all the reality shows. They suck. Love, love, love this show.

  6. Hawk says

    Revolution is just a well written show with a great cast. It is unlike any other show on TV, very unique. This show does not deserve to be cancelled. I have watched it from the beginning an it is pulled from the air it would be a crime. Every year new shows get on and when you find a gem like Revolution, it seems to get pulled before it has a chance to come to the end of the story. There have been so many shows that just disappear without closure. Don’t end this great show the same way. We fans deserve better.

    Finally you have something different and you are going to get rid of it? It’s one of the most original TV series ever made.

    Cancel Revolution? Wash your mouth out with soap! Revolution is the best show on TV! We need it to stay on TV for at least 8 or 9 more years!
