The NBC drama “Revolution,” from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, is back for its second season in a new time slot at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Details on “Revolution,” provided by NBC, are as follows:

The show centers on the Matheson family’s struggle to survive 15 years after a mysterious worldwide blackout. Their post-apocalyptic world is juxtaposed with bucolic, overgrown cities and a journey of hope, rebirth and retribution.

Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off with ICBMs speeding toward Atlanta and Philadelphia. Last season, Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell, “Lost”) relentless quest to avenge her son’s death sent her on a heroic journey to The Tower, where she could turn the power back on, so the Rebels and Georgians could wage war against General Sebastian Monroe (David Lyons, “ER”) and defeat his treacherous Militia. Aaron Pittman (Zak Orth, “Romeo + Juliet”), a major player at Google, joined her on this suicide mission with the hope of restoring the world’s technology. Miles (Billy Burke, “The Twilight Saga”) discovered that Monroe was waiting at The Tower for Rachel and mounted a rescue mission with Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos, “Being Human”), Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito, “Breaking Bad”), Jason Neville (JD Pardo, “The Cinderella Story”) and Nora (Daniella Alonso, “My Generation”).
But our heroes soon discovered that former Department of Defense Secretary Randall Flynn (Colm Feore, “The Borgias”) had outwitted Monroe and hijacked The Tower for a sinister “Patriot” scheme. With help from a very reluctant Aaron, Randall turned the power back on and used the surge to send nuclear bombs to the Eastern seaboard.

For four minutes, the power came on across the globe, creating what became known as the Surge. But something mysterious happened to our heroes during this phenomenon…

This season, “Revolution” returns to its powerless roots and settles into Willoughby – a small town in the great nation of Texas. We flash forward three months to find Miles, Rachel and Aaron licking their wounds and lying low, aided by the town doctor, Gene Porter (Stephen Collins, “7th Heaven”). Charlie sets off on a vision quest in the Plains Nation and a desperate Neville and Jason search a Georgian refugee camp for their beloved Julia. Though our heroes are scattered around the continent, one thing is clear: that harrowing trip to The Tower created some peculiar circumstances and altered the political landscape of the continent.
Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”), J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” “Person of Interest”), Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”), Rockne S. O’Bannon (“Cult,” “Defiance”) and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2″) serve as executive producers. Kathy Lingg (“Fringe,” “Person of Interest”), David Rambo (“V”,”CSI”), Anne Cofell Saunders (“Smallville,” “Chuck”), Phil Sgriccia (“Supernatural”), Trey Callaway (“CSI: NY”), Paul Grellong (“Law & Order: SVU, “Terra Nova”) and Charles Beeson (“The Mentalist,” “Supernatural”) serve as co-executive producers. “Revolution” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.
