Netflix May Give ‘Jericho’ a Third Life

Posted by at 10:45 am on May 2, 2012

Fans of the late sci-fi series “Jericho” could see the show popping up on Netflix if all of the details can be ironed out.

The online video company has reportedly been speaking with CBS, “Jericho’s” former network and production arm, about reviving the series, says TV Guide.

However, TV Guide reported that preliminary talks between Netflix and the network have already begun. CBS president Leslie Moonves revealed in February that the network was chatting with Netflix about doing a show together, the magazine added, speculating that the show in question was “Jericho.”

Fans succeeded in saving the series from cancellation the first time around by sending CBS 20 tons of peanuts, a reference from the first season’s final episode. But the show lasted only an additional seven episodes in its second season before being yanked off the air for good in 2008.

Several challenges await before the series stands a chance of life anew online.

The stars and producers would have to be rounded up, and their schedules freed to commit to a new season. Both Netflix and CBS would have to cough up the money to bring the series back into production, with some promise of a return on their investments.
