NBC’s Revolution doesn’t return to the airwaves for more than a month—not until March 25th—but the network is doing its level best to keep fans from forgetting the highly rated freshman drama. They’ve been running weekly animated webisodes, and now they’ve delivered a new poster and a couple of stills from the upcoming second half of the season.
The image on the poster is similar in appearance to many of the shots we’ve already seen for Revolution. It prominently features all of the key players: Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), Aaron (Zak Orth), Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers), Nate (JD Pardo), Rachel Matheson (Elizabeth Mitchell), and Nora (Daniella Alonso). Floating ominously in the sky above are the sinister faces of Sebastian Monroe (David Lyons) and Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito). You have the rebels and the militia—the good guys and the bad, respectively—all in a hazy, dreamy setting.
The slogan “Take Back the Power” is definitely an appropriate moniker. As the first season of Revolution went on, and how it will presumably continue, the rebellious act of the title took more and more prominence. The insurgents seek to take back the power both literally and metaphorically. They want to regain control over their own lives and the countryside, reinstating the United States, but they’re also out to claim the medallions that are the key to restoring electricity to the world.
The additional pictures are again pretty standard stuff. There’s Miles running, either from some precarious situation, probably involving the soldiers of the Monroe Militia, or towards trouble that will likely involve him showing off his sword-fighting skills.
The second looks like the aftermath of an explosion. From previews and short clips we know that the second half of Revolution’s season will feature Monroe using newly revitalized military technology, like helicopters and tanks. From the stunned look on Miles, Charlie, and Rachel’s faces, it looks like they’ve just witnessed Monroe’s new might.
