CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Tuesday night marked the fall finale of the hottest show to debut this season on television.
‘Revolution’ is taking a break until next march, but NBC Charlotte reporter Michelle Boudin went behind the scenes on their Wilmington, North Carolina set to get some scoop on upcoming episodes and what it’s like to shoot in the area.
If you watch ‘Revolution’ you know there is some serious butt kicking girl power.
“All the action and stunts that we get to do is really fun,” said Tracy Spiridakos, who plays lead character Charlie. “I think there’s definitely some girl power.”
Elizabeth Mitchell plays her mom, Rachel. “You’ve got a bunch of really strong women trying to make things better,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell is used to playing strong women. She last worked with Revolution’s co-creator JJ Abrams on ‘Lost’—another show that kept audiences tuning in for unexpected twists and turns.
“I love in some ways not knowing what’s going on,” Mitchell added. “He has a sense of whimsy I find really nice, a sense of adventure.”
The cast and crew recently found out the show was picked up for the whole season.
“I couldn’t be happier. We all really believe in this project and we’re all giving it our best and hope that everybody loves it, so the fact that people are digging it is what you hope for,” Spiridakos added.
NBC Charlotte hung out with the crew as they shot in an old Wilmington area hospital.
The set was what they call “revolutionized” –dirtied up–made to look like a future world without power.
The scene leads up to a major revelation on ‘Revolution’ in an episode that will air next March.
