For fans of Revolution who are looking for answers as to how the show might have ended, Warner Bros Television and DC Comics will release a four chapter digital comic book that will wrap up the storylines left dangling with the series’ cancellation. Executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon and Jon Favreau are behind the creation of the comic book that promises to answer questions about what happened following the season two finale, which turned out to also be the series finale.
David Reed and Ryan Parrott, Revolution the series’ writers, wrote the digital comic. Kripke, O’Bannon, Paul Grellong, David Rambo, Trey Callaway, Anne Cofell Saunders, Ben Edlund, Matt Pitts and Jim Barnes also worked on developing the story, and DC Comics’ artist Angel Hernandez illustrated the comic book.
The four chapters will be available on ComicBook.com on the following release dates:
Chapter 1 – Monday, May 4
Chapter 2 – Monday, May 18
Chapter 3 – Monday, June 1
Chapter 4 – Monday, June 15
Announcing the digital comics, Revolution creator/executive producer Eric Kripke wrote this message for fans:
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.
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.
