WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Revolution spent millions of dollars in North Carolina filming its first season.

According to Johnny Griffin, with the Wilmington Regional Film Commission, the NBC show spent an estimated $56 million.

That number includes all wages earned and taxed in North Carolina and all goods and services bought and taxed in the state.

The show is filming its second season in Austin, Texas, a move that many said had to do with the direction the show was going in terms of its storyline.

You can watch the last Wilmington-filmed episode of the show when the season finale airs on Monday at 10:00 on WECT.
