Critics weren't exactly easy on the first season of NBC's "Revolution," and it turns out that series creator Eric Kripke was the biggest critic of them all.
"I'm harder on the show than any human being ... as I was watching the second half of the season, I was like, 'Huh, there's a lot of power on this show without power,'" Kripke admitted to io9 at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 of the post-apocaylptic series, which centers on a worldwide blackout.
Although "Revolution" saw solid ratings at the start of Season 1, bringing in 11.7 million viewers in its September premiere and eventually averaging about 6 million viewers, Kripke promises Season 2 will be better.
"If last season was about war, this season is more about mystery. I still give answers. I still unfold things at a nice healthy clip, but I really wanted to push through," he added to io9. "My headline is: I'm out to prove something for Season 2. I'm aggressively working on building a better engine here."
As for the "Revolution" Season 2 cast, Kripke told The Huffington Post in March that he wouldn't mind plucking a few more actors from his other show, The CW's "Supernatural."
"They’re great actors and I’d like to bring more of them. I will bring Jim Beaver into this show. He looks like he would live in 'Revolution,' doesn’t he? It’d be a missed opportunity to not do it," he said. "I’ve been really pleased to be able to bring in 'Supernatural' alumni and I have a great affection for them, so to bring Mark Pellegrino and Colin Ford and eventually Jim ... I’ll put Misha [Collins] in the show. I’m going to bring a little gang in. Don’t worry, the gang are all going to show up in 'Revolution.'"
Season 2 of "Revolution" premieres on Wed., Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
