Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/237...ack-on-netflix

Netflix is obviously liking the publicity it is getting for resurrecting sitcom "Arrested Development" that it apparently has been looking into other cancelled shows of recent years to potentially revive on the streaming and disc service.


TV Guide Magazine confirms that Netflix has approached CBS about reviving cult fave "Jericho" and the network is considering it. Repeats of the series remain popular on Netflix's on-demand service even four years after the show's cancellation.


Launched in 2006, the original drama followed the residents of a small Kansas town in the wake of a nuclear attack. The show ran for two seasons.


The big challenge is making the project financially viable for both Netflix and CBS. Attempts were made to revive "Jericho" through Comcast (ala "Friday Night Lights") but those didn't pan out.


Now, if only we could get "Firefly"... lol

Always wanted to watch that show but the fact it was cancelled after 3 seasons has always put me off, I hate shows ending with no closure.

Veronica Mars needs to be seen. It closes most of the storylines each season.

You should watch it, regardless.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

WELL! This is certainly an interesting development. I remember hearing that this might happen years ago when Netflix said it was planning on buying up dead properties but nothing after that until now. VERY cool!

And yes, Frontier, I agree, Firefly would be another great pick-up, too. However I wouldn't consider it as likely, when Whedon and his sister put the kibosh on wanting Nathan Fillon to buy the rights to bring it back. Although I think anybody could do a better job of supporting it than Fox did...bastards...But I digress. Methinks Whedon wants to keep that one for himself, even if it never sees the light of day again.

Joss Whedon doesn't have a sister. Maurissa Tanchaeron is his sister-in-law, married to Jed Whedon.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

The first two seasons of VM were great, truly great. The third was much less so IMO.

VM, Firefly and Jericho are all much better than a good bunch of guff that currently airs and gets renewed season in, season out.

At this point I have to think that they're just doing this for attention.

Re: Netflix Investigating Bringing Back "Jericho"

I actually enjoyed Jericho but it has been several years since it ended and frankly they shouldn't bother with resurrecting it. Who knows if they can get the cast back, the same writers, have the same budget, etc. It would probably end up being not as good as we remember much like reunion movies that networks used to do with tv shows years ago. Once you capture lightning in a bottle it is pretty hard to recapture it. Plus the series actually had a pretty good finale all things said than most other shows could hope to have.

Like most "successful" tv shows from the '00s Veronica Mars had one good season--S1--great season mystery, getting to know the characters was fun and then it was downhill from there--S2 was such a convoluted complicated mess of a season long storyline that required diagrams to follow what was going on and the payoff was uber-weak and S3 had lost the fun factor of S1 not to mention the two arcs that season were LAME.

Looks like most of the main cast aren't actually up to much at the moment.

Brad Beyer was on GCB which just got canned, Lennie James had the Gotham pilot that wasn't picked up, and then the rest, or most of them, appear to be at loose ends.

I have had Jericho on my instant queue for a long time. If this happens, I may actually end up watching it.

I'm rewatching it at the moment.

Starts really well, then takes a dip, but then comes good again.

To be fair the episodes where it dips aren't anywhere near as bad as I remembered.
