NBC has announced that they have picked up full seasons of three freshman series – Revolution, Go On, and The New Normal.
The post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama Revolution has been killing it in the ratings, earning the highest ratings for a premiering drama since ABC’s V three years ago.
Set 15 years after a permanent worldwide blackout, Revolution follows a band of survivors as they try to outsmart and outmaneuver bandits and militia while searching for lost family and the cause of the mysterious blackout.
Go On and The New Normal are two new comedies on the Peacock Channel, and have both been doing well since their premiere. NBC calls Go On the “#1 new comedy of the fall,” with The New Normal doing favorably well with Go On as its lead in.
Go On stars Friends alum Matthew Perry as recently widowed radio sportscaster Ryan King. In denial of his feelings after the loss of is wife, King is forced into group therapy by his boss (played by Harold and Kumar‘s John Cho). Not really into the whole “healing process,” King has a hard time adjusting to the oddball group, but eventually comes to realize that they may be his best chance at moving on.
In The New Normal, committed, loving couple Bryan and David decide they want to raise a child in their hometown of LA. When a fertile young woman from the Midwest, Goldie, comes out to LA with her 8 year-old daughter in search of a new life, Bryan and David decide she’s the perfect candidate to become their surrogate – and she gladly accepts the offer. With Goldie as their surrogate mother to be, Bryan and David have created their own surrogate family.
The New Normal was created by Glee creator Ryan Murphy and stars Andrew Rannells (Girls, The Book of Mormon), Justin Bartha (The Hangover), and Georgia King (One Day).
Revolution airs Monday nights at 10/9c. Go On airs on Tuesday nights at 9/8c, followed by The New Normal at 9:30/8:30c. Trailers for all three shows can be found below.
