Revolution

Were you a fan of NBC’s Revolution before it fell under the cancellation axe? Well, then you’ll be happy to know that the post-apocalyptic drama’s storyline, which was left with many unanswered mystery in its season two finale, will finally be getting some closure. According to executive producer Eric Kripke, he’s reunited with the show’s other producers – JJ Abrams, Jon Favreau, Bryan Burke and Rockne S. O’Bannon – as well as two of it’s writers – David Reed and Ryan Parrott – to finish the show’s story as a digital comic book. He posted this note on ComicBook.com explaining that it was all thanks to the fans that this came about:

“Dear Revolutionaries, Patriots, and Soldiers of the Monroe Militia,

So first of all—thank you. Seriously. Sincerely. The loyalty you’ve shown REVOLUTION these past months has been touching and overwhelming—it’s meant more to me than you’ll ever know. And in case you were wondering—yes, we’ve been listening. We’ve read the tweets. We’ve seen the incredible petition. We’ve followed #RelocateRevolution. Please know that you’ve been heard.

And solely because of your efforts, we wanted to pay you back—to give you something fantastic. And while, unfortunately, we simply can’t make more episodes of the show (alas, there are financial realities we can’t overcome), we can do the next best thing. Which is end the story. On our terms. Exactly the way we would have.revolution-comic-writers-room-131591

So J.J., Jon and I are pleased and proud to announce the REVOLUTION endgame: a four-issue series coming soon from DC Comics. If you take a look at the attached photo, you’ll see that we brought back the entire writing staff to work on it. The band’s back together! (And if you study the photo closely, you’ll notice a certain young, plucky Matheson who also joined us). Everyone has generously agreed to work for little or no money. They’re doing it, because like you, they’re passionate about this story and want to see it end correctly.

So stay tuned. We’ve got lots of work to do. We’ll keep you posted—in the coming months, you can expect more details, sneak peeks, and early artwork. But Miles, Monroe, Rachel, Charlie, Aaron, Neville and the rest will return for the epic finale to the REVOLUTION storyline. We hope you’re as excited as we are.

And again—thank you. This is because of you. This is for you.

Much love,
Kripke

The digital comic will be comprised of four chapters, with new issues being made available on ComicBook.com every two weeks as from Monday, May 4 2015.

Now if we can just start seeing those Flashforward, Defying Gravity, Stargate Universe, Carnivale, Space: Above and Beyond, Surface, Invasion and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
comic books, that would be great.
