After airing just a few episodes of "Revolution", "Go On" and "The New Normal", NBC has picked up the three new shows for a full season. It marks the first series of this fall TV season to get full-season pick-ups with nine more episodes to be added to the initially-ordered 13 episodes.
"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," says NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke of the sci-fi drama from J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke and Jon Favreau.
"We're also very proud of our new comedy block of 'Go On' and 'The New Normal'," Salke adds. "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."
