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.

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

    Never was much of an NBC fan until they started showing Revolution. I missed the first season because of work and other obligation, but my wife and I have been catching up on Net Flix. We were watching ep. 12 & 13 last night and I told her that this show was addictive and couldn’t wait to start back with season 2 . We started watching season 2 and quickly realized that we had missed way to much of season 1.
    This is a great show, with a great story line and great characters. I’ve been a science-fiction fan since the Star Trek series and am an avid outdoorsman and survivalist and this show covers all.
    There are very few tv shows that I will stop and make time for. Do the right thing and keep the series going. Do some more advertising, because I sure don’t see any on my cable provider.

    Love the show! Don’t cancel! This and The Voice are the only two nighttime shows I watch. I would prefer it back on after The Voice though.

    It is very good entertainment. If something needs to cancelled, cancel one of many phoney reality shows in fact cancel all of them.

    I must admit, last season I was losing interest in the show; however, since the second season started up, it’s my second favorite (second to Walking Dead). I look forward to it all week. Please DON’T cancel

    Great show. I watch it every week. It’s a bit bloodier this season. I don’t know if that means they are getting more desperate for ratings. I hope all is well. great character development.
