When Revolution wrapped its final episode in May 2014, fans were very disappointed that the show had such a short run. Additionally, the open-ended series finale left those fans without any real closure on the characters and storylines they had been captivated by.
Because so many fans had rallied to bring the show back and give it the closure it deserved, the entire production and writing team have come back together in an attempt to give the fans what they want.

JJ Abrams, Eric Kripke, Jon Favreau, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon and the rest of the creative team behind the series have collaborated with DC Comics on a four-chapter digital comic book for Revolution to bring closure to the storylines that were left open in the season 2 finale.
DC Comics artist Angel Hernandez has designed special covers for each of the four chapters, which are set to release every two weeks beginning on Monday, May 4. The chapters will be released exclusively on ComicBook.com and released on Revolution’s Official Facebook Page a week later. Below is a preview of the sketches Hernandez is designing.

Kripke, the show’s creator and executive producer left this message for Revolution fans.
“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.
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.
