NBC announced today that it has picked up freshman series Revolution for a full season. The sci-fi adventure drama is three episodes into its first season and has pulled in strong numbers for each airing in its Monday 10:00pm time slot, so far averaging a 3.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.

“We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on ‘Revolution,’ not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience,” said NBC Entertainment president, Jennifer Salke. “Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn’t ring, and the pace of life slows down -- if only for one hour a week!”

New comedies Go On and The New Normal were also given full season orders today.
