7 Reasons to Be Excited for Revolution's Return

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... read more

Felicity's Keri Russell Is All Grown-Up and Spying on The Americans

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys

We were all a little stunned when Felicity Porter, the University of New York's most famous student (aka Keri Russell), showed up as a gun-toting operative alongside Tom Cruise in 2005's Mission: Impossible III. But the gamble worked. Nobody was talking about her haircut, that's for sure. In a weird way, then, Russell's role on FX's The Americans is a logical progression. She and Brothers & Sisters' Matthew Rhys play Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings, married spies who live in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., in the early 1980s, but there's a twist: They work for the other guys, specifically Cold War-era Soviets.

TVGuide.com sat down with Russell to find out why she signed on, what's in store for the Jenningses and how Felicity creator J.J. Abrams had a certain prescience about her new job... read more
