The announcement was made Tuesday by Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment.
"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," Salke said in a statement.
"Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn't ring, and the pace of life slows down -- if only for one hour a week.
"We're also very proud of our new comedy block of 'Go On' and 'The New Normal.' 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," she said. "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. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup."
