Sources Say JERICHO Will Be Back!

According to’s Michael Ausiello, CBS is on the verge of resurrecting the recently canceled JERICHO for at least eight episodes, possibly starting at mid-season.

If this rumour turns out to be true, this TV Addict applauds the dedicated fans of JERICHO who have managed to do what so many fandoms have failed to do — resurrect their cancelled show (see: EVERWOOD, VERONICA MARS and ANGEL to name a few.) Hopefully when the time comes to fight the next big cancellation battle, JERICHO fans will share the secret to their success. Or at the very least, the incriminating photos I can only assume they have of CBS president Nina Tassler.

    Peanuts. Lots and lots and lots and lots of peanuts. *laugh* Over 19 tons of peanuts so far to be exact. lol

    Like Ausiello said if this does happen networks are going to have to think long/hard about what their programming schedules are. They will set the bar for resurrection!!! Save Jericho!!!!

    I don’t want to hope that this is going to come to fruition because I don’t want to be crushed by a second cancellation of the show, but it’s sounding good, so fingers crossed! :)

  • Josh

    I sure hope and want to hope that this will happen. But I’m afraid to get my hopes up too high, since Ausiello also said before that chances were “pretty good” that Veronica Mars would be renewed. Still, I can’t help but be excited by the possibility. SAVE JERICHO!!

    Could be great news. I’m sure all the nuts helped but it’s probably more to do with the Nielsen ratings report that came out last week that basically said people across the board stopped watching tv within 72 hours of tivo’ing it so the numbers got all wonky in April and May. Every show with a few exceptions lost viewers and it turns out now they didn’t lose as many as they thought. Jericho slipped for sure but so did every other serial show and I think CBS knew they made a mistake and the nuts just help drive that point home….

    I’m actually surprised they are only talking about an extended mini series… fingers crossed we at least get that :)

    I’m with others who are afraid to get their hopes up. This will be awesome if it happens, but I’ll save my shouts of joy when it’s officially renewed…
