Netflix In Early Talks With CBS About ‘Jericho’ Season 3; Is It ‘Firefly’s Turn Yet?
The Movie God   |  @   |  


Netflix is making a little hobby out of at least inquiring into bringing back popular shows that have been canceled.

Back in March we found out that they were in very early talks with FOX to continue the recently canceled Steven Spielberg-produced prehistoric drama, Terra Nova. No word yet on how those chats went or are going, but if it works out the show would join Netflix’s first successful resurrection, the very popular Arrested Development.

Now comes word that Netflix is interested in one of CBS’s popular canceled shows: Jericho.

The show centered on a fictional Kansas town and its residents as they dealt with the apocalyptic fallout of nuclear attacks on 23 cities in the United States. It starred Skeet Ulrich, Lennie James, and Ashley Scott, to name a few.

Talks between Netflix and CBS are in the most preliminary of stages, so fans of the show shouldn’t get too excited yet. As TV Guide—who first broke the news—says, a whole lot of obstacles still need to be cleared for it all to fall into place. This includes financial terms for both sides and finding a way to get all necessary cast members back together.

If all goes well, this wouldn’t be the first time Jericho returned from the dead. It was canceled after its first season before passionate fans convinced CBS to give it another shot (which is fair enough; Firefly fans would kill for even one more season of their beloved still-dead show). It was after a shortened second season failed to live up to expectations that the plug was once again pulled.

And speaking of Firefly, I consider it an obligation to use each of these shows being looked at for potential revival as an opportunity to ask: when will Netflix inquire about THAT canceled show? When it comes to wanting shows brought back from the dead, you’d have to think that Firefly sits at the top of the popularity list (once joined by Arrested Development).

Way I figure it, the more we nag, the more likely they are to at least ask…right?

Do you want to see Jericho brought back to life?

    If they brought back Jericho, I’d still have to somehow get over how much I hate Netflix for its political positions.

    If they brought back Firefly? I’d sell out my own mother, let alone my political views.

  • VA_Guy

    “When will Netflix inquire about Firefly?” When Castle craters and frees up Nathan Fillion. And sadly, not before.


    Never watched Jericho. Hate Arrested Development. As far as Firefly goes… hell yes they should bring it back.  BROWN COAT 4-EVA!! 

  • Carlrlj

    if they bring back jericho and firefly ill, forgive their 
    political positions. and sell my own mother.

  • Rtcollin

    Jericho was amazing….I would be thrilled if they brought it back. Interesting story and fantastic cast.

  • malimal

    Just started watching this series on Netflix. I wish they would bring it back.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sten-Daniel-Andersen/719283047 Sten Daniel Andersen

    I would love it if they brought it back!

  • meg

    Just watched both seasons of Jericho on Netflix in the past two weeks and am extremely disappointed they wouldn’t finish this. Atleast one more season, wrap up the loose ends! Such a great show!!

  • John Petersen

     Don’t you think hating someone (or some company) for political views is a bit extreme and pointless?  What ever happened to civil discourse? Political bigotry is the main reason we’re in such a mess today.

    That said, I can’t wait for Jericho season 3 and, someday, Firefly. Kinda cool that Netflix has a built-in gauge for the popularity of these shows.  Everybody go watch Firefly on Netflix!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=505493291 Holly Ridle Locke

    Yes, Netflix should bring Jericho back.  I would love to have Firefly back too but maybe they could work around Nathan’s schedule at Castle.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=580027010 Andy-Karen Bashaw

    We have been waiting for Jericho to come back ever since the last episode of Season 2 aired. Really hope that Netflix & CBS network can work it out so the fans get the show back

  • http://www.facebook.com/justin.ardolino Justin Gabriel Ardolino

    Fuck Firefly. This is all about Jericho.

  • Mask4jesus


  • Clifton

    I don’t even usually comment on blogs such as this; however, I must make an exception this time. BRING THIS SHOW BACK! It was probably a flop the first and second season because of poor advertising on CBS’s part not a poor series. Honestly I didn’t even hear of Jericho not once while it was airing, but I just watched one episode on Netflix and immediately I was hooked! Please bring this show back if any way possible!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=501999667 Joseph Greenbaum

    YES! Bring out Season 3, and 4 and 5! 

  • Bill

    How do you figure politcal bigotry is the reason the world is such a mess.  Sin is the reason the world is such a mess.

  • Bill

    I would love to see the show back.  It was a great show… and, unfortunately, just like Sarah Conner Chronicles.  The only thing I’d add, is if it comes back, they could ditch the foul language.  We’d enjoy the show more without the fould language.

  • Sasha Tripolsky

    ysss! bring jericho back! its a great hook! i love it!!!

  • Christy

    Jericho should definitely be brought back!!!! It was one of the best TV shows out there. So many TV shows are horribly written and produced and yet they’re still running–it is quite a sad portrayal of what people like to watch these days. I surely hope that one day audiences will start paying greater attention to the well done shows than any poor TV shows, including those reality shows. Jericho is well written, well produced, and suspenseful.
    Please bring back Jericho! I would love to see more seasons of Jericho!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3P2426KUPHQHZAJQ3HSPHAVIKU out_to_lunch

    yes, one more season

  • Spencer

    Please please please bring Jericho back!

  • girl


  • guest

    Bring back Jericho !!!!!!!!!

  • Didicoolj

    Simple…..The world needs to know what happens, Jericho needs to be properly concluded! If its one more session then fine, however by the sounds of all the responses, everyone seems keen to have more.

    Hopefully these views are considered, after all why waste money on a new pilot show that may fail, when you have already got an impatient audience awaiting the next session of proven show!

    Fingers crossed and all that, if the wind blows in the right direction, we may just get what we ask for.

  • Donald

    I absolutely love Jericho. I’m watching reruns even now. Dale just blew away Mitch Cafferty for stabbibg Gracie. Things are starting to heat up pretty quick now so if I could roll right on in to season 3, that would be AWESOME!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Kelly.A.Figueroa Kelly Figueroa

    Jericho!!!!!!! Seriously this show DESERVES it.

  • Codecreater

    need jericho season 3..plz

  • http://www.facebook.com/LoneWolf964 Rob Gianella

    At least bring Jerico and Firefly back for one last season to end it on the right note!!!!!

  • Lea

    yes please !! need to see jericho season 3. just saw season 1 and 2 on netflix and i really love the show. need to know whats coming next.


    please one more season we miss jericho

  • tnicks

    Season 2 of Jericho was awful. If they can’t bring back the production value from Season 1, don’t bother.

  • Sluffnstuff

    Duhhh!!!! Only the best show ever!!!!!!!

  • Andyterrell2


  • http://www.facebook.com/RAZKALKING Razkal King

  • Becr

    Yes please bring Jericho back!!! They hardly make good shows like this anymore. And it wouldn’t hurt to bring Firefly back too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dennis.velez.9216 Dennis Velez

    yea definitly….I am not much of a TV watcher outside of football and the Lakers, but JERICHO is by far the best TV show I have ever seen… its like people do not like to watch real life possibilities…. this show depicted the only way that America could be brought down (from within). I also watched the entife 2 seasons in less than 2 weeks…..GREAT SHOW

  • claire

    if you are going to tell two thirds of a story like jericho, then shame on you!!! bring it back, but only do so if you are going to make the last third do justice to what came before.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shayne.blandin1 Shayne Blandin


  • ColbyClites

    Make a 3rd season.

  • Don Grantham

    Jericho is (was) one of the finest examples of intelligent, thought provoking, emotionally gripping programming, which is probably why it was cancelled. In fact, it is total BS like this that prompted me to cancel TV entirely. Jericho still lives on Netflix. WE WANT JERICHO BACK, IDIOTS!

  • Brian

    Bring Jericho back this show is amazing!

  • J-man

    Hell yes I want to see Jericho back on the screen!

  • RedNinjaPhoenix

    How could they cancel this wonderful portrayal of our enevitable future and replace it with shows nobody gives a crap about reality tv is not reality. But this show has real world perspectives that should be acknowledged. Bring Back Jericho and cancel all reality tv.

  • Bella

    I would love to see jericho come back, im currently watching it again on netlix. Im trying not to finish it so fast cause i dont want it to be over….. Please bring it back!

  • Alfred

    After I finished the last episode of season 2, i realized my life was over. Please save me. Jericho. All Day.

  • FDC

    BRING IT BACK!! This one show that definitely deserves it. The audience deserves it also.Great show.

  • The Grappler

    I got hooked on this show by watching it on Netflix. Action packed fly by the seat of your pants suspense. Great cast and very interesting storyline with many twists and turns. Thank God for Netflix or else I never would have had the pleasure of watching this great show. Please, please bring Jericho back for a third season.

  • Noah

    Please bring back JERICHO! I never knew this show existed until Netflix started showing it and I wish I can go back to when it first aired so I can support it! Bring it back!

  • Jason

    Watched both seasons in 3 days! I dont get off into todays shows, but this series is the REAL deal!! Bring on a season 3 and ill be on it too.

  • mikeyb

    As a netflix member i flip through piles of c rated movies but stay for the series that i missed. But if netflix continues to resurrect amazing series i will be very comfortable in staying a netflix member for a long time. Bring back jericho!… and im 8 episodes into firefly and wouldnt mind that either. But jericho first!

  • R


  • Kelly

    Yes please!!!!! I want more Jericho!! I’m geeking for it!!!

  • fan

    I don’t understand why it was taken off the air. Jericho is an addicting show. They need to put this show on. The whole creation of it is genius.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mrrodewaldface Tim Rodewald

    Jericho season 3 please i want more

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecilia.ramireztalancon Cecilia Ramirez-Talancon

  • Jamie

  • jade

    jericho was such a great show, of course i want to see more of it!

  • Hendrik

    Yes please please please bring back Jericho I really got into it and then found out after reasearch that they cancelled the show. Is there a way to contact CBS and ask them personally why they’ve cancelled?

  • mreeder10

    Jericho deserves another chance! Best drama ever!

  • Mike

    What an amazingly well-written, acted and produced movie series! I just finished watching it on Netflix, and I agree with the reviews below; Jericho is about the best series I have EVER watched. Totally engrossing and compelling.

    There is clearly a need to bring back the original cast, producers and writers to complete a 3rd season. I can’t believe they stopped it. Thank you to Netflix! I would have totally missed out if they hadn’t worked to get Jericho for their viewers. THANKS!

  • Celeste

    Bring Jericho back!

  • Netflicksdontletmedown

    Bring back Jericho please the ending we currently have is irritating, and well your at it bring back intelligence.

  • Netflicksdontletmedown

    Also if you are going to do Jericho season 3 make sure you have the money to do it properly.. Don’t do a half ass job at it. I’d rather u leave it alone, if u r just going to butcher it. But again please try to bring it back.. Probably one of my favourite shows ever. I believe the only reason this show did t take off was in the title.. If this was a more catchy title, people would have been itching for every new episode.

  • cat

    i love jericho .. it would be great to see the fight and if the good guys win .. i hope they bring it back

  • http://www.facebook.com/emma.sunertonburl1 Emma Sunerton-Burl

  • Sarafildey

    Yes please bring back Jericho!! More seasons PLEASE!!!

  • Eli K

    It would be awesome to see season 3 and fourth of jerico. This is the best show I’ve ever saw. I’m sure it will be an Oscar winner.

  • mpchic97

    I would love to see jerichos return. I became addicted to watching it on netflix. Then was disappointed when there wasnt any more episodes to watch to find out it had been canceled. So not cool!!!please bring it back!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Grey/100001308117491 Michael Grey

    Yes, I will renew my Netflix membership if Jericho returns.

  • Shane N

    Jericho is such a great show. Why would they even cancel it? did it not get ratings that they wanted when it was first aired? One more season to finish up the series isn’t such a drag. Especially now that a lot of people are interested in the show.

  • Tobias Prasomsat

    I watched both season 1 and season 2 in 3 days… It’s by far the best TV show i’ve seen in a long time. They NEED to make another season.

BUT PLEASE BRING BACK JERICHO

  • http://www.facebook.com/auntsassy Melissa Williamson

    I just don’t understand why they would end a series like this. I want to see season 3. I believe if everyone whose part of jericho wants to bring it back and are welling to bring it back why not give the viewers what they want. I am one of those viewers. Please bring jericho back.

  • http://www.facebook.com/auntsassy Melissa Williamson

    i totally agree I believe jericho needs to be on amc I think it would do better on that channel I also think netflixs needs to help amc bring it back

  • http://www.facebook.com/varg.strande Varg Strande

    Jericho! Jericho! Jericho!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mikey.cardoza.1 Mikey Cardoza

  • Zach

    Fantastic action packed show with a well written script and amazing acting. I cried alot through this series, the acting really were that amazing and I empathized for the characters.

  • http://www.facebook.com/KDPPhildo Philip Balestriere Jr

    I read the season 3 comic. I would love to see them turn it into the show. In January I found out about Jericho. I found it on netflix and watched seasons 1 and 2. Now I am watching it over and over again. I also bought the complete series. BRING BACK JERICHO!!!

  • Michael Murphy

    Has anything come of this. I have just finished Season 2 on Netflix now!!

  • Amber Rae-Marie O’Reilly

    Yes please bring it back!!! I loved this show!!!! I want to see what happens with Stanley and Mimi-if they have a kid. What will happen to the town now that the bomb has finally gotten to Texas! Will Jake and Emily get married yet. You cant end a story like the way it did, because there is still so much that means to be told. Plus Skeet Ulrich is hot!!! Get this deal done soon. Im just seeing this now and its been two years since this might happen well its time to get it done!

  • Ed Ward

    Damn straight!!!
