NBC is placing its freshman hit Revolution on four-month hiatus after its midseason finale Monday, November 26. It's a risky move, in no uncertain terms, but one the Peacock thinks will pay off.
"We're aware of how rare the miracles of these hits can happen," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke tells TV Guide. "We wanted to put it in the most protected time slot possible."
"We believe people will wait for it, and we want to make sure we give Revolution every chance possible to be the hit that we think it can be."
That means after two more episodes, Revolution won't be back until March 25. That will allow NBC to air originals, uninterrupted, into the summer, while keeping the show directly after The Voice.
Season 4 of the hit singing competition kicks off that very same night.
