“Revolution” has been taking a break since November, but last according to TVLine, this January chief of NBC Robert Greenblatt said, “The first episode back is a big episode that completely turns the story in a really significant way. It kind of sends the second half of the season off on a new trajectory.” Greenblatt added that one reason NBC wanted to keep “Revolution” off the air for a while was their desire to bring it back with a strong lead-in show.
Executive producers J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke didn’t seem concerned about the show’s four-month hiatus at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena in January. In fact, the idea to relaunch the series with fewer repeats pleased Abrams.
“I was enormously relieved because I felt like we were getting to a place for the viewer where it would be the best possible show,” Abrams said. The break also gave the executive producers “the ability to take a breath, look at what we’ve done and really analyze it,” said Kripke. “I think we did a lot of things right. But I felt like we could pick up the pace of the stunning revelations.”
Miles and Monroe’s relationship will get an added twist when “24″ alumnus Annie Wersching joins the cast of “Revolution” as Emma, former love interest for both men, TVLine reports. This history behind this crucial love triangle is sure to heat up the already angry conflict between the two former friends.
Wersching joins two other former “24” cast members, Kim Raver, who plays Captain Neville’s Lady MacBeth-like wife Julia, and Leslie Hope, who will be taking on the new role of President Foster of the powerful Georgia Federation.
