“Revolution” executive producer Rockne S. O’Bannon and cast members Elizabeth Mitchell (Rachel) and Stephen Collins (Rachel’s father Gene) headed down to Anaheim, Calif. on Friday (April 17) to host a WonderCon panel in advance of the final four episodes of Season 2. After showing a sizzle reel of the season so far and teasing the final four episodes, O’Bannon surprised the audience by revealing that “Revolution” creator Eric Kripke was at that very same moment pitching Season 3 to the network in Burbank, Calif. That’s a pretty legit reason to miss out on the panel.
While O’Bannon couldn’t give anything away about what the potential Season 3 storyline will be, he did offer up a tease on how Season 2 ends. “It’s really hot. It’s really good stuff,” O’Bannon says. “Everything comes together in these final four episodes in terms of the patriot mission coming to a head at the same time that the nano takes a hard look at humanity as its creator and it’s lacking. Plus, something is whispered into Rachel’s ear that changes everything about what was behind the blackout.”
