WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - NBC has picked up Revolution for a full season commitment, according to a release sent out Monday afternoon from the network.
Revolution is filming in the Wilmington area after shooting its pilot in Atlanta.
"We're impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on 'Revolution,' not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience," said Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment, said in an emailed release. "Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn't ring, and the pace of life slows down -- if only for one hour a week!"
Revolution has averaged a 3.6 rating in the demographic of adults 18-49. The show had the highest premiere of any NBC drama in five years.
NBC also picked up The New Normal and Go On for full seasons.
