Next Episode of Rebellion is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
RTÉ's new five-part 1916 commemorative drama Rebellion begins with the outbreak of World War I. As expectations of a short and glorious campaign are dashed, social stability is eroded and Irish nationalism comes to the fore. The tumultuous events that follow are seen through the eyes of a group of friends from Dublin, Belfast and London as they play vital and conflicting roles in the narrative of Ireland's independence.
On Easter Monday a few hundred rebels launch their attack taking the authorities and holidaying Dubliners by surprise. Lover is pitted against lover, friend against friend and brother against brother as the rebellion takes hold.
Three days into a siege the rebels seek international recognition for Irish independence but the British forces are closing in. Elizabeth, Frances and Jimmy are caught up in the action at the GPO.
In the face of overwhelming British reinforcements, the rebels surrender. Swift military court martials and executions follow. Meanwhile, tragedy strikes the Mahon family as their young son Peter is shot and killed.
As the dust settles from the rebellion, May, Elizabeth and Frances deal with the consequences of their actions.
