First Look: Eric Kripke’s Revolution TV Series

3 Comments

NBC LogoCheck out your first look at “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke’s new show, “Revolution”. Kripke left “Supernatural” after the fifth season to concentrate on new shows, and “Revolution” looks to be the first successful one he’s gotten on the air. It comes with producing credits by J.J. Abrams, though given how any pies Abrams (or to be more exact, Abrams’ production company) has their fingers in at any given time, it’s doubtful he had enough of a creative input on the show to call it “J.J. Abrams’ ‘Revolution'”, though I doubt if that’s going to stop NBC from advertising the show as such.

In any case, here’s your first look at the cast of “Revolution”, which is described as “a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.”

Knowing Kripke’s method for telling stories, you can expect plenty of family drama and serialized storytelling with filler episodes in-between the big ones. I also wouldn’t be surprise if Kripke has a lengthy multi-year plan for a single overarching story, the way he did with “Supernatural’s” first five seasons. Let’s hope the show lasts that long. Big networks like NBC are not nearly as forgiving as the CW when it comes to ratings.

NBC has already greenlit the show to series, so expect it on the airwaves soon.

Starring Anna Lise Phillips as Maggie, Graham Rogers as Danny, Tim Guiee as Ben, David Lyons as Bass Monroe, Billy Burke as Miles, Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie, Andrea Roth as Rachel, Maria Howell as Grace, Zak Orth as Aaron, and Giancarlo Esposito as Lt. Neville.

    This could be a pretty good show. It will have the survival aspects that I liked from Terra Nova it seems, but in a “I am Legend” environment! I’m down! I also hope Kripke has this planned out as well.

    It seems like a Hunger Games wanna be show

    WTF! why someone is still giving work to kripke? he didn’t plan a damn thing on supernatural, he took a great show about two brothers, WHO LOVED EACH OTHER VERY DEEPLY, fighting monsters with cool rock music, and transformed that to a monstrosity about god, internet crap with the brothers hating each other.
    He is a terrible writer and a very disturbed person. I was a fan of supernatural and I clearly remember all the times when he wrote stupid offensive things about his fans, bashing fans that didn’t worship the altar of jensen ackles.
    And this show looks beyond horrible, a clone of all the worst shows and movies recently produced in america.
