Hollywood Insider is reporting that THE EVENT will return from its midseason hiatus in February, kicking off with a one hour clip show to get new viewers up-to-date with the mysterious happenings so far.
While The Event hasn’t fared well in the ratings so far, NBC has ordered a full 22 episodes to complete the shows first season. Cast members are hopeful for the shows future, with Bill Smitrovich (Vice President Jarvis) saying, ""We will finish up with our first 13 and then there be a break, and then we’ll come back with a one-hour compilation clip show of the first 13 so everybody can catch up with story. I hope that will spark another increase in the audience."
The Event is a science fiction thriller centered around a group of aliens found in Alaska in the 1940s and their modern day impact on both the American government and some unfortunate civilians.
The Event airs Mondays 9/8c on NBC.
