Nine has now confirmed a premiere date for Revolution, the post-apocalyptic drama from J.J Abrams (Person of Interest, Fringe, Lost), along with Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Bryan Burk (Fringe, Lost).
It begins on Tuesday November 5th.
This series has already aired on Pay TV but is a FTA premiere. Revolution is currently in its second season in the US and on Foxtel.
All power has mysteriously blacked out. Phones, computers, everything. There are no cars. Nothing works anymore. The global blackout brought down governments, made masses flee the cities, and left survivors to resort to a primitive way of living – gathered in villages and hunting their food.
Fifteen years later nothing has changed. Local militias now run rampant and heroic freedom fighters do all they can to work out why the power failed and how it can be restored.
Seen through the eyes of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), a strong-willed young woman, and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers), Revolution is a story about families – the one you’re born into and the one you choose.
In the double episode premiere, Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders and Charlie must seek out her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke), a former US marine who now lives a reclusive life. Banding together with a rogue group of fellow survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and put an end to the blackout.
8.30pm Tuesday November 5 on Nine.
