Well, better than nothing. What's funny is Jericho was also a post-apocalyptic show and it also received a comic series after it's ended.

REVOLUTION DIGITAL COMIC BOOK TO DEBUT IN MAY

FROM WARNER BROS. TELEVISION AND DC COMICS

Four Separate Chapters Will Resolve Series Storylines

For Fans Beginning May 4th

BURBANK, CA (April 15, 2015) — Fans of the Warner Bros. Television series Revolution, which ended a two-year run on NBC in May 2014, are going to get a resolution to the show's storylines that were left open-ended in the final broadcast episode.

In response to passionate fan efforts to revive the show, the entire creative team behind the series — including executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O'Bannon and Jon Favreau — regrouped to create a special four-chapter digital comic book with DC Comics that will serve to continue and ultimately resolve the adventures last seen in Revolution's second season finale.

Revolution writers David Reed and Ryan Parrott handled the writing duties of the digital comic's four chapters, after breaking the story in the writers' room along with the rest of the Revolution creative team, which included Kripke, O'Bannon, Paul Grellong, David Rambo, Trey Callaway, Anne Cofell Saunders, Ben Edlund, Matt Pitts and Jim Barnes. A photo of the team at work on the digital comic, along with a special guest who fans will recognize, can be seen here.

Illustrated by DC Comics' artist Angel Hernandez, each of the four separate digital chapters will also have a specially designed cover, and will roll out every two weeks beginning Monday, May 4. A sneak peek at three of the illustrated Revolution characters — Charlie Matheson, Miles Matheson and Sebastian Monroe — can be seen here.

The four chapters will each be debuting exclusively on www.ComicBook.com for one week before being made available for viewing on Revolution's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Revolution. Fans can also use the #RevolutionComic hashtag on Twitter to find out more information about the digital comic.

Here is the rollout schedule for each chapter on www.ComicBook.com:

Chapter 1 - Monday, May 4
Chapter 2 - Monday, May 18
Chapter 3 - Monday, June 1
Chapter 4 - Monday, June 15

Revolution creator/executive producer Eric Kripke had this message for fans regarding the digital comic:

Dear Revolutionaries, Patriots, and Soldiers of the Monroe Militia,

So first of all—thank you. Seriously. Sincerely. The loyalty you've shown REVOLUTION these past months has been touching and overwhelming—it's meant more to me than you'll ever know. And in case you were wondering—yes, we've been listening. We've read the tweets. We've seen the incredible petition. We've followed #RelocateRevolution. Please know that you've been heard.

"Revolution: The Power of Entertainment"And solely because of your efforts, we wanted to pay you back—to give you something fantastic. And while, unfortunately, we simply can't make more episodes of the show (alas, there are financial realities we can't overcome), we can do the next best thing. Which is end the story. On our terms. Exactly the way we would have.

So J.J., Jon and I are pleased and proud to announce the REVOLUTION endgame: a four-issue series coming soon from DC Comics. If you take a look at the attached photo, you'll see that we brought back the entire writing staff to work on it. The band's back together! (And if you study the photo closely, you'll notice a certain young, plucky Matheson who also joined us). Everyone has generously agreed to work for little or no money. They're doing it, because like you, they're passionate about this story and want to see it end correctly.

So stay tuned. We've got lots of work to do. We'll keep you posted—in the coming months, you can expect more details, sneak peeks, and early artwork. But Miles, Monroe, Rachel, Charlie, Aaron, Neville and the rest will return for the epic finale to the REVOLUTION storyline. We hope you're as excited as we are.

And again—thank you. This is because of you. This is for you.

Much love,
Kripke

Defiance only got a second season so Syfy wouldn't look bad after spending a lot more money than they should on creating an unsuccessful show (it only had a decent start and it quickly dropped to similar viewership levels to Syfy's cheaper shows). I doubt they'll give it a third season.

Simple- Revolution is on NBC, they got tons of money to spend and high standards. Defiance is on Syfy who have... neither.

Although Defiance is much more interesting than Revolution for me, so Revolution getting canceled makes me go "meh, whatever"

There are some things seriously more horrible than Defiance in my opinion. At least, although from bad CGI, they are trying. First episodes of season 2 is a bit scattered though.

But Revolution was completly lost from all sides. Writers didn't seem to have a single clue where to go so it ended up going in circle.

i'm kinda glad it's cancelled, i already didn't like the nanobot thing, but i liked how season two started off, but it really went downhill for me after they teamed up Monroe and went after his son. Just too much weird shit going on without the magic robots.

Not the greatest show on earth, but will miss it.

They shouldn't be allowed to keep the rights to future production if they don't intend to produce it.

To whomever is behind revolution, take my money. I'm not sure revolution is worth it, and I'm not sure what it costs to produce a season, but just once I'd love to see a bunch of fans pitch in, say, $20 bucks each to see a new season of something happen. It doesn't matter if you can't get it broadcast, release it online; even torrent it if you can't afford the server space, since your getting paid to make it anyway. How many viewers would it take? I see you had just under 4million US viewers coming into the season finale, extrapolate that to all the viewers around the world who currently can't pay you at all and have to illegally torrent anyway, you must be able to get enough of them to pay to do something. Even if you fell short, and put the money into a comic series to finish out the story; just don't take months between each short comic book like jerhico did.


Pretty sure NBC owns the rights to the show "Revolution" and they would rather see it forgotten, then allow it to become a potential embarrassment if season 3 turned out to be a huge success.

I just saw the final episode and that town in Idaho must be the same town (same set) as the town in Persons Unknown from 2010? It looked much like it.
