NBC’s Revolution, a post-apocalyptic series set in a world where electricity was permanently shut down was cancelled after its sophomore season in 2014. Despite being small, Revolution had a devoted fanbase that fought for a third season. While it wasn’t enough to renew the series, a small victory was had, as DC Comics and Revolution show runners announced the continuation of the series in comic book form (much like how Jericho did. Dystopian shows don’t seem to do too well for some reason…). The comic follows the aftermath of the show’s second season as the now sentient nanotech (who are capable of seizing bodies) flock toward Bradbury, Idaho to form their own town.
Revolution will continue to follow the main survivors Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), Sebastian Monroe (David Lyons), Rachel Matheson (Elizabeth Mitchell), Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), Aaron Pittman (Zak Orth), Priscilla Pittman (Maureen Sebastian), and Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito).
As of Chapter 2, Connor Monroe (Mat Vairo) and Gene Porter (Stephen Collins) are the only surviving main characters not to have reappeared, though Stephen Collin’s character may have just been written off after his sexual abuse charges.
Chapter Two can be viewed for free here.
Revolution Season 3 will be comprised of four chapters, releasing bi-weekly. Chapter 3 will release on June 1st, and the Season finale will release on June 15th.
