Revolution is an American post-apocalyptic science fiction television series that ran from 17 September 2012 to 21 May 2014, when it was cancelled by NBC. The show takes place in the post-apocalyptic near-future of the year 2027, 15 years after the start of a worldwide, permanent electrical-power blackout in 2012.
Miles and Rachel escape from Neville and Jason, who are working for the Patriots, and reunite with Monroe, Connor and Charlie, along with Duncan’s men. They find out that the quarantine camp featured previously has been converted into a re-education camp, which was built by Doyle. They also find that the re-education camp is using children from Willoughby and other towns. One of the kid’s fathers inadvertently activates programming in his daughter cadet when he recites the numbers from a tattoo discovered on her eyelid. They return to the encampment, only to be attacked by Neville and Truman. Before they escape, Rachel convinces Miles let the cadet go. In Washington D.C., President Jack Davis is told by Commander Allenford that the re-education centres are up and running. Meanwhile, Aaron continues his journey to Willoughby with Priscilla, who is later enveloped by nanotech fireflies.
Flashback: Six months after the blackout, Truman is a US Army corporal guarding prisoners at the US Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The US government arrives and announces their plans to the soldiers stationed there, starting a new form of dictatorship. They are headed by the Secretary of Defence named Jack Davis.
