Set just before the start of the Armageddon, the series follows two central characters, a physicist and a nun in a race against time to see if the end of the world can be averted. Bill Pullman plays the role of Dr. Richard Massey, a Harvard physics professor and father mourning the death of his daughter, who was murdered by an evil satanist with seemingly supernatural abilities. Natascha McElhone stars as a nun who appeals to Massey to help her investigate whether the apocalyptic prophecy from the Book of Revelations is starting to come true.Written by

My wife & I very much liked Revelations.
We are very sorry to find out that the series will not be continued. The only thing we can think of as to why, is that maybe it wasn't advertised enough. I think most anyone would enjoy this mini-series. There is a fair amount of violence, and the wanton killing is difficult to take, but the overall series is well worth it. It is basically a tale of good versus evil. The characters, I believe, do an excellent job. Michael Massee, as the "bad guy", does an especially great job. No wooden performances here - an overall great job by everyone. It is refreshing that the two "good guy" leads are a professor and a nun, so there is no romantic interest possible; seems like about every time I see a movie, there must be sex involved. It's nice that they didn't stoop to that level in Revelations.
