The sci-fi drama aired its fall finale on November 26 and will not return to NBC's schedules until March 2013.
"I think the show supports that cable format - run ten [episodes] in a row, take a break, and then run another ten," Kripke told Entertainment Weekly.
"One thing it really does that's useful is it gives the writers a half-minute to breathe and really craft the second half of the season in a way it deserves. That's an unprecedented luxury for me, to actually take a minute in the middle of the season and re-access without always being rushed toward deadline."
Kripke added that he is hoping the hiatus "doesn't dampen any viewer's enthusiasm" since the first season's latter half has "bigger and better stuff coming".
"Creatively it worked out for us because the second half is such a different show than the first half," he suggested. "The second half really is a revolution, they're starting this war."

NBC's Entertainment president Jennifer Salke previously defended the decision to put Revolution on a break, insisting that "people will wait" for the show's return, but the network's Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt later admitted that viewership is likely "going to drop" following the hiatus.
Revolution's final episode for 2012 attracted 8.7 million viewers - the season will resume with its 11th episode on March 25.
