If you need a memory jogger of the show, it's got a survivalist feel and is from both the Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and Lost creator J.J. Abrams are executive executive producers; cast includes Billy Burke (Charlie from the Twilight films), Tracy Spiridakos (Brynn on Being Human North American) and Giancarlo Esposito (Once Upon a Time). Here are also some descriptions of the series:

Updated Description: "After 15 years of darkness, an unlikely group sets out to save the world."
Genre: Originally we had this as paranormal, but now it looks a survivalist drama
The People: Both Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and Lost creator J.J. Abrams are executive executive producers; cast includes Billy Burke (Charlie from the Twilight films), Tracy Spiridakos (Brynn on Being Human North American) and Giancarlo Esposito (Once Upon a Time).

I'm definitely interested in Revolution, although I'm a little sad it conflicts with Alphas which is also on Mondays at 10pm on Space until October 22, 2012. Thank goodness for timeshifting! See more about Revolution the cast, crew & show here and the shows website at CityTV and website at NBC.
