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:

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

    I love this show – I look forward to watching more than anything else on TV! NBC please reconsider – don’t cancel Revolution!

  3. rose says

    This is the only show worth watching on NBC. Guess I won’t be watching NBC at all anymore. Why do these executives cancel everything that is good and they keep the crap going for season after season?

  4. Jerri says

    My husband and I really enjoy this show as it depicts a potential real-life situation in this increasingly dangerous world. Why is it being cancelled? Please, Please Please – reconsider, NBC!!!

  5. Faye Roberts says

    WHY is Revolution being cancelled. It’s one of the better shows on television these days. Remove the idiotic reality shows and replace them with good shows like Revolution.
    Greedy money hungry tv stations!!!!!

  6. Gary says

    Why cant they make this show a Netflix or straight to video series? I love this show and don’t want it to end.

    With DVR, Hulu, Netflix, and on-demand, how does any tv show get ratings, nobody watches it live.

  7. Vickie says

    Why don’t TV shows all start out as a mini series? That way the viewer isn’t left hanging when a show is cancelled! I’m getting to the point of why should I start watching anything if it most likely will be cancelled, I feel like I just wasted a lot of my time when there is no ending!

  8. Jane Monte says

    I can not believe they are cancelling this show that I love. What are they going to put on?, another disgusting reality show. I think I will ripe NBC off my TV.
