The Revolution TV show on NBC has attracted a fairly sizable audience that has stuck with the show despite infuriating schedule changes throughout season 2.

Fortunately, the network appears to finally have let the show air without breaks, with just a couple episodes away from the season finale (set for May 21).

Things have been ramping up this season with the group trying to foil the Patriots plan for national domination, though there have certainly been stumbling blocks along the way–Jason’s death one of them.

Neville, devastated by the loss of his son and also seeking the downfall of the Patriots, forms an uneasy alliance with Monroe in the prelude to the finale on May 14. 

Monroe, Miles, and Charlie prepare to launch an attack against the Patriots in the finale but must improvise a risky new plan in order to halt an upcoming war between California and Texas.

Neville sets his sights on President Davis as he seeks revenge.

Meanwhile, Aaron and Rachel have to save Priscilla from the nano-tech but meet with unexpected consequences.

As for what many fans are wondering about–the chances of a season 3–all hope is not lost. The ratings have stayed fairly steady despite the shuffled schedule, and show creator Eric Kripke skipped WonderCon to pitch a season 3 to the network. It’s not looking great, but a renewal could still happen.

Executive producer Rockne O’Bannon, who was at the panel, said that the season 2 finale and the episodes leading up to it are “really hot” and “really good stuff,” reported Zap2It.

“Everything comes together in these final four episodes in terms of the patriot mission coming to a head at the same time that the nano takes a hard look at humanity as its creator and it’s lacking,” he said. “Plus, something is whispered into Rachel’s ear that changes everything about what was behind the blackout.” 

Though the finale is technically the last episode, O’Bannon said that the last four episodes are sort of a four hour event. Rachel will be the lightning rod for both the Patriots and the nano-tech storyline, tying it all together.

“Marrying the two was nice,” said Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays Rachel. “It was nice to be in the world battling the patriots and to be in Aaron’s world as well.” 

O’Bannon also said that with the death of Jason and Neville losing his wife as well, the former leader is “the definition of a loose cannon.”
