Three of NBC’s new series this season, the comedies Go On and The New Normal, and the drama Revolution, have been picked up for full seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Revolution, from Lost‘s J.J. Abrams and Iron Man director Jon Favreau, is about a dystopian society without power. The show airs on Monday nights. Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said, “We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team of Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience. Ordering a full season of this show is a pleasure.”
Go On, starring NBC alum Matthew Perry, is about a radio host who joins a quirky support group after his wife’s death. The New Normal, from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, is about a gay couple and their relationship with their surrogate and her bigoted grandmother. Both sitcoms air on Tuesday nights, where they will reportedly remain. Salke said, “In partnership with Matthew Perry for Go On, Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion.” She adds that The New Normal “is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in.”
All three shows had early previews before their official premieres.
