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.

Series Finale:     
Episode #42 — Declaration of Independence
Miles (Billy Burke), Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Monroe (David Lyons) launch an attack on the Patriots, but must improvise a risky new plan in order to halt the oncoming war between California and Texas. Out for revenge, Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) sets his sights on President Davis (guest star Cotter Smith). Meanwhile, Aaron (Zak Orth) and Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) efforts to save Priscilla (guest star Maureen Sebastian) from the nano-tech has unexpected consequences.
First aired: May 21, 2014.

    This is a wonderful drama. There is not much to watch on tv that is a drama and exciting yet not filthy. Please do not cancel.

    I was wondering what happened to this show. I watched every episode and thought I missed the ending. Really made me mad. I agree this is one of the best shows on tv today. No sex, bad language or nudity. Just plain old reality of what could happen. The creators of the show did a very good job keeping the audience mesmerized and fixated the whole time. Please bring it back. I am waiting for the ending with great anticipation.

    Please DO NOT Cancel this show. For once NBC, has a viable show that is not centered around sex and stupidity. The storyline makes sense and this could very well happen in the near future especially with what’s going on in the word today! NBC, keep this show on the AIR…. Please.

    I love this show – excellent story lines – somewhat on the same vein as LOST – maybe because same producers/writers. Please don’t cancel this one – there aren’t many good ones this year.

    One of THE BEST shows in a very long time! They better not cancel this-seems like NBC has gotten into a routine of cancelling shows, good ones, too quickly and leave a bunch of other crappy shows that I never hear anyone talking about, at least not in a positive way! PLEASE DON’T CANCEL REVOLUTION!

    I love this show, just let your imagination go and relax (sort of). I am not big on reality TV (except the voice) and this is a great excape.
