Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams introduce the first minute of Revolution’s return with a brand new preview clip, in which Abrams promises that, “the second half of the first season is just bigger and cooler and gets more intense.”
This is good news for fans of the NBC post apocalyptic sci-fi drama that have been waiting patiently for the show’s return during an interminably long four-month hiatus.
The story picks up exactly where it left off back in November, with General Monroe (David Lyons) ordering out one of his now functional military helicopters to gun down our escaping heroes. Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), her uncle Miles (Billy Burke), and the rest of the gang appear to take refuge from the overhead assault in an abandoned diner.
Starting off the second half of the first season of Revolution with a bang is a smart move by the producers who are no doubt hoping that fans have not forgotten too much about these characters and their struggle for power in their dystopian world of the future over the long winter break.
