Netflix May Give Cult Hit ‘JERICHO’ A New Lease. The Dude Smiles.

I never saw Jericho, being part of the band of negligent assholes who contributed to its demise. However our own The Dude did, and he was quite complimentary about it. I imagine this news will tickle him. In places.


Our favorite post-apocalyptic TV seriesJericho  could be back… again. The last timeJericho  graced the small screen was in 2008, but now sources are whispering that Netflix has reached out to CBS, in hopes of bringing it back.

After just one year CBS canned the show centered around a band of survivors of a nuclear attack. But thanks to an insanely loyal fanbase, and their amazing peanut mail-in,  Jerichocame back. Sadly the reprieve was only short-lived.

But now, according to  TV Guide,  Netflix has noticed the show’s online popularity, and the company is currently in the process of trying to revive the series for Netflix.

This is not the first time we’ve heard of the return of  Jericho  – a few years back there was almost a deal with Comcast to bring back the series, but all those efforts crumbled. But maybe Netflix has the wherewithal to relaunch the show – assuming the cast would still be open to continuing their roles, many years later. We’re cautiously optimistic, but wouldn’t it be great to get  Jericho  back?

…Would it make sense to revive this? As I said, I haven’t seen the show, so I don’t know if it concluded or the such?.
