Jericho information

Jericho the dramatic series was cancelled twice in its two year run on CBS, that hasn’t stopped the producers from moving ahead with their plans for a third season. But this time, the show won’t be returning to the small screen. The third season of Jericho will be available on the racks of comic stores.

The Jericho panel at this weekend’s Comic-Con wanted to make it clear to attendees that the new series of comics is a direct continuation of the short-lived TV show; a third season. The speakers included comic editor Cody DeMatteis, actor Lennie James (Robert Hawkins), writer Robert Levine, and Jericho producers Jonathan Steinberg, Karim Zreik, and Dan Shotz.

Shotz assured the crowd of attendees that the new comic stories were being written by the same writers that produced the show. He said, “It was so important to do this as a team, this group is the group that started this show, and we wanted to continue it that way… and we wanted to keep true to the story that was planned… we wanted the characters to look like the characters, the stories to be from the writers of the show.”

Jericho: Cancelled TV Show Rises from the Ashes Once Again

March 13, 2009
It's just possible that cancellation was a good thing for Jericho. When they heard that CBS was dumping the series after one season, thousands of dedicated fans banded together to convince the network to bring it back. Though the second season wasn't a big success, the show's fanbase had united and remained committed. Now, the Jericho story is set to continue. Jericho centers around a small Kansas town that struggles to come together after nuclear attacks leave the United States in a state of disaster and civil war. Skeet Ulrich stars as Jake Green, the mayor's son, who helps to lead the community after the attacks. The rest of the ensemble cast includes Lennie James, Ashley Scott, Kenneth Mitchell, Brad Beyer, April Parker-Jones, Alicia Coppola, Pamela Reed, Bob Stephenson, Gerald McRaney, Richard Speight Jr., and Clare Carey. When Jericho was cancelled for the second time, it seemed like that was the end of the story. Still, the producers and fans have refused to let the series die. A deal has now been struck with Devil's Due Publishing (DDP) to create a new comic book series based on the TV show. Dan Shotz, one of Jericho's executive producers, gives credit for this revival to the fans, saying that they've "driven us to find new and fresh ways to tell the Jericho story."
