The revolution is about to begin!
On Monday, March 25 (10/9c), Revolution returns after a four-month hiatus — and though it's been quite a while since the show has been on the air, the NBC series will pick up exactly where we left off, with Miles (Billy Burke) & Co. on the run from Monroe (David Lyons) and his fleet of newly powered helicopters. But will they be able to make a daring escape? In short, duh! The show can't end like that! But what's in store for the survivors? The cast and executive producers teased what's coming up at Saturday's PaleyFest panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Michael Schneider. Get the scoop below:
Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke
It's been a while, Revolution. We've missed you. At least those of us who still remember the NBC hit after its seemingly endless four month hiatus. But now Revolution's return is only a few weeks away (March 25 at 10/9c) and the question is: does anyone still care? Creator Eric Kripke sure hopes so. "I think, honestly, it's an engine that's humming better than it ever has," he said. While Revolution was the biggest freshman hit of the fall season, many viewers were left lukewarm by the midseason finale. After taking this time off the air to reevaluate, Kripke now believes the show's return has what it takes to attract old fans, those still on the fence as well as a whole new audience. "We've learned from our mistakes and really sort of figured out what works and what doesn't work," he tells TVGuide.com...

Can you give us any more details on Brennan's near-death experience on Bones? — Destiny
ADAM: "I am shot and I die," Emily Deschanel deadpans. Fortunately, she continues, while Brennan is trapped between planes, she reunites (and has a heart-to-heart) with her long-dead mother, which could change Brennan's view of the world completely. "She has some big words of advice for me," Deschanel says. "You discover where Brennan's hyper-rational perspective came from, and ... her mother shatters it a bit. No one changes over night, but that does change Brennan and really seeps into her life."
Will Derek ever return to surgery on Grey's Anatomy? — Katie

Will anything surprise us about the upcoming episodes of Once Upon a Time? — Megan
NATALIE: We know that the flashbacks lead to Regina enacting the curse, but coming trips to the past may surprise you. "We're going to show you some things in our world that you didn't even think were an option," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. Will we see flashbacks to other lands — say, Oz? Kitsis remains coy. "[They'll] center on our characters, but in surprising ways."
I loved the flash-forward of Marshall becoming a judge on How I Met Your Mother. When will he be sworn in? —David
ADAM: Like basically everything else on this show, that day is "a little way down the road." Lily, on the other hand, might be considering a career switch...
"The revolution and the battle against Monroe really begins."
That was the party line Sunday at Revolution's panel during NBC's winter TV previews, as executive producer Eric Kripke promised reporters that the second half of the series' freshman season will actually begin to deliver on the promise of the title...
Revolution's seventh episode was one of those where the flashbacks far outshined the main story line. "The Children's Crusade" finally gave us a much-awaited glimpse at the story behind the notorious blackout. Check out what we learned and seven other burning questions. [Spoilers ahead]
Where it all began:
In just a few short weeks, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) has polarized Revolution's audience into two very distinct groups: those who appreciate Charlie's plucky spirit and those who want to strangle the heroine with her own (perfectly coiffed) hair. But is Charlie really that bad or is she simply misunderstood?
Giancarlo Esposito, Kim Raver
She completes him. And that may or may not be a good thing. Ever since NBC's new thriller Revolution premiered, we've been hearing wicked warlord Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) talk lovingly and longingly about his wife, Julia. We finally meet her in Monday's episode (10/9c, NBC), and...
Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke
Revolution creator Eric Kirpke was surprisingly candid during a recent conference call with journalists, revealing much about what viewers can expect of the drama's future. The showrunner opened up about the reasoning behind last Monday's death, Grace's return and when we'll find out why the power went out! (It's sooner than you might think.) Here are six juicy teases.
