Good news, J.J. Abrams fans — you're getting a new (and hopefully better received) series from Abrams on NBC! It's called Revolution, and it focuses on a band of survivors making their way in a new world after all of the world's energy mysteriously disappears. And here's your very first shot of the cast standing ominously on a giant staircase. Note the bows and arrows! That trend isn't going anywhere, anytime soon!

According to TV Line, NBC has picked up this new drama series, which was also crafted by Supernatural's Eric Kripke and directed by Jon Favreau. The show stars the Mustache Dad from Twilight (actor Billy Burke) and Giancarlo Esposito from Once Upon A Time and Breaking Bad (which doesn't really bode well for Esposito's character on Once).

Can anyone guess what the secret behind the massive power outage is? Because you know there's going to be a mystery wrapped in a mystery tied with a bow with Abrams.
