NBC plans to quench Revolution fans' thirst during hiatus by releasing weekly webisodes now through February 18.
The six webisodes are based on letters written by Sgt. Joseph Wheatley (Reed Diamond), the man who lured Miles (Billy Burke) into the tunnels toward Philadelphia, to the waiting trap set by General Monroe (David Lyons). In addition to the web mini-series, NBC.com will also feature a version of the show’s pilot that includes commentary from showrunner Eric Kripke and executive producer/director Jon Favreau (of Iron Man fame).
Kripke had already hinted at producing Revolution mini-episodes on the web when discussing the fall finale with Entertainment Weekly. NBC also plans to put the entire first half of the season on its site on February 25, giving fans plenty of time to reacquaint themselves with the first 10 episodes by the time the second half airs on March 25.
The intent is to keep viewers interested—and excited—about the show during its winter hiatus, a feat that can never be completed easily. However, extra content may be just what fans need to sate that need for their favorite show, and keep them coming back for the March premiere.
The first webisode, titled “Wheatley’s Letters: May 7th” aired on January 21. You can view it at NBC.com.
