NBC has decided to order full seasons of three of its fall premieres. Revolution, Go On and The New Normal have all been picked up until at least the end of their first seasons.
NBC’s biggest success so far this season has been its drama Revolution. The show, which follows a group of survivors in a world without electricity, has averaged nearly 10 million viewers during its first three episodes.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said:
“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. Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure … 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, starring Matthew Perry, and The New Normal have also received orders for a full season. Go On has seen an average of 8.6 million viewers. The New Normal has also been successful with about 6 million viewers tuning in every week.
“We’re also very proud of our new comedy block of Go On and The New Normal. In partnering with Matthew Perry for Go On, creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in The New Normal that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!”
