‘Jericho’ Revival Still in Talks at Netflix?

Jericho Netflix Revival

CBS’s past post-apocalyptic thriller ‘Jericho‘ may not have had the same legions of fans still clamoring for a ‘Firefly‘ reunion, or the support that saw ‘Arrested Development‘ returning to the air after seven years, but ‘Jericho’ remains a beloved series that fans will always look to continue in one form or another. Previously, we’d heard talks that Netflix might look to revive the twice-cancelled series, but have the discussions come further along? Find out the latest on a ‘Jericho’ reunion inside!

TV fans these days know that miraculous revivals do come true, even years after a series goes off the air. ‘Jericho’ in particular was given a short stick at CBS, cancelled a second time after fan campaigns successfully revived the post-apocalyptic drama for an additional seven episodes. Prior to its cancellation, ‘Jericho’ followed the residents of a small Kansas town in the wake of an American nuclear civil war, and maintains an active streaming presence on Netflix.

Recently the franchise has enjoyed a “third season” comic book with Devil’s Due publishing, but has Netflix finally begun to follow up on earlier talks about a full-scale revival? Speaking to Nerdacy at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival series creator Stephen Chbosky relayed that discussions for a true ‘Jericho’ revival are ongoing, saying:

You know WME (William Morris Endeavor) Agency, who represents me, Jon Turteltaub and many other people, and they’ve been talking to Netflix and you never know. I can’t say what it will be in season three, but I’m excited for the new developments.

On the plus side, series lead Skeet Ulrich remains available, though co-star Lennie James (‘The Walking Dead‘) has a commitment to upcoming AMC series ‘Low Winter Sun.’ What do you think? Could ‘Jericho’ be the next great revival for Netflix after ‘Arrested Development’?
