NBC came out of the gates with a handful of renewals, giving Dick Wolf´s shows new seasons, as Chicago Fire got renewed, and Law & Order SVU too, and NBC also renewed Revolution for a second season of what has been one of the best surprises from NBC lately, only trailing The Voice as the best new blessing for the peacock network.
The renewal order for Revolution´s sophomore season will consist of 22 episodes slated for the 2013 – 2014 season.
“Revolution,” the Monday night drama that centers on a family trying to reunite amidst a worldwide power failure, is executive produced by Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”). The series is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.
“Revolution” is the season’s top-rated drama on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox and top-rated new series among those networks in adults 18-49, scoring a 4.6 rating, 12 share and 11.8 million viewers overall in “most current” averages for the season to date. “Revolution” has teamed with “The Voice” to help improve NBC’s Mondays this season versus last by 24 percent in 18-49 (with a 3.6 rating vs. a 2.9).
