THE EVENT (NBC) Cast Photos - First Look with Jason Ritter exclusively reveals that THE EVENT is returning to television on Monday, March 7 at 8/7c. NBC will air a two-hour presentation of The Event, followed by Harry’s Law. After that, the series will again take its original Monday at 9/8c time slot for the nine remaining episodes until the end of the show’s first season.

Perhaps even more exciting is the news that Janusz Kaminski, a highly regarded cinematographer, will be directing one pivotal episode. Kaminski won Oscars for his work on Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List, and is also behind War of the Worlds. He will be directing episode 15 of The Event, but it is unclear what will make the episode pivotal.

As reported by, producers stated last year that “The Event” would be revealed in the latter half of the first season. They maintained that the first season finale would conclude the current storylines in a satisfying manner, as opposed to a hair pulling cliff-hanger.
