Could 'Jericho' be returning?


Is there life after death for Jericho?

Maybe, According to the series co-creator Stephen Chbosky. The series, which has been canceled twice already, could possibly return to life on Netflix.

"You know WME [William Morris Endeavor] Agency, who represents me, Jon Turteltaub and many other people, and they’ve been talking to Netflix and you never know," he said. "I can’t say what it will be in Season 3, but I’m excited for the new developments."

Jericho told (tells?) the tale of what happens to the residents of Jericho, Kansas (a fictional town) after a nuclear attack on the United States decimates more than 20 cities. Jericho has continued life as a comic book series since it was cancelled.

"The greatest fans in the world came out strong for 'Jericho Season Three: Civil War' and we are so thrilled to announce another installment of the comic book series," said Dan Shotz, an executive producer, after the second season of the comic book was revealed. "Jake and Hawkins have finally come home to Jericho and we want to personally thank those fans and IDW for allowing that to happen."

Skeet Ulrich was the main star of Jericho, which premiered on CBS in September of 2006. It did well at first, drawing 11.7 million viewers, but that number quickly eroded. Fans campaigned the network to save it and secured it a second, seven-episode season, but the numbers fell even further and the show was cancelled again.

Reports of Jericho returning on Netflix have been bouncing around for a while now - but this seems like the first real rumor with any substance. Would you welcome a return to Jericho?

I would love another season! I think showing the struggle of civil war would be really interesting. More sustainable living issues and practical life stuff.

Jericho kept me on the edge of my seat. I am the type of person that will watch a show or a movie for a few minutes and if it does not satisfies me than I would turn it off. This show I could not get enough of. I would love for a season three to come out and for the show to keep having more seasons to come. This is by far the best TV show I have ever watched and I have watched plenty of them. This show has made sit back and realize that if something like that was to ever happen, like our power going out for good, I would not know if I could survive it. I love this show, it needs, and it has to come back.
