JERICHO Netflix Season 3 Update — Could Series Mount A Nuts Return?

Jericho Netflix Season 3 Update

Rumors of a Jericho revival have been hot for some time now, just last May there were reports that Netflix and CBS were in talks over a possible third season comeback.

In the latest will it/wont it update, Jericho creator Stephen Chbosky revealed during a chat with Nerdacy that talks remain ongoing:

You know William Morris Endeavor Agency, who represents me, [executive producer] 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 3, but I’m excited for the new developments.


What would Jericho Season 3 look like?

As for where would the story go if the series did return for a third season? Chbosky said:

“Well, if you really, really want to know about season 3, the best thing would be to read the comics. That tells a better story.”

That might be a bit of deflection there from Chbosky, but it could also imply that the comics would provide the template for any potential third season under his watch. Such a continuation would be interesting for all sorts of reasons, not least because it would provide the opportunity to have a built-in road map whilst allowing the show to go off in its own direction, ala The Walking Dead.

Of all the seriables touted to return, Jericho is one of those that makes the most sense, under the right circumstances. Despite a miraculous second season renewal after the show was initially cancelled, the story — at least on-screen — feels ripe for continuation.

While it’s best not to get hopes up too much, sometimes the seriable universe can surprise you (just look at The Killing). We’ll keep you updated on any developments.

    I sure am happy to see talks are still being held! 😀
    It’d be great to get a bit more of the show on Netflix. Though, Lennie James seems quite busy these days. Should I be worried for the sake of his character?

    Anyone know if I could read the comics online? I’ve seen them for sale on a few sites, but always for more money than I’d be willing to pay for them >_>

    Lennie James came out like 3 months ago saying he was ready and willing to go on with jericho and wouldnt have a problem making it work ( He is the voice for the cast to bring back the show) Skeet ulrich might be the biggest question mark and no skeet no show so

    WOW!!! Jericho rocks…the actors are very colorful, it’s full of ongoing action and the plots are original and super addictive. I sure hope something is worked out with Netflix and CBS. Hated to watch the final episode, but it is done now and I already miss it. Please try and get Skeet and Lennie back on board. They are great together. Both great actors, know how to make it real. JUST DO SOMETHING!!!

    I just started rewatching the series on Netflix. I am so hopeful for a return. I only found this article to read up on what might have been as I do with other dearly missed shows from seasons past. I had no idea that they had written comics or that a live-action revival was even in the cards.

    I started watching Jericho yesterday…have not been able to stop..any free moment I have. It iis an excellent, well written series and completely current..believable..and most of all engaging. Seriously tired of all the reality shows that are “NOT” so well written..hopefully everyone realizes they “ARE” written and not real. I for one can hardly stand to have my intelligence assaulted by those writers. Revolution comes close…however..sad to say..the violence and situational scenes do not seem to draw me in as much as Jericho. Few series are so engaging that you literally forget what is happening in your life…I really hope season 3 happens.

    I have to agree with all of the above….Hands down one of the best shows ever to be created….I think the reason it may have failed is due to poor marketing–I do not ever remember hearing about the show. In fact, I ran across it on Netflix and couldn’t stop watching it…We all know and love the characters so it is important that we try to retain those stars—I for one would promote the series to family and friends–most people I know or who I have introduced to the series had not heard of it until I recommended to them on Netflix–No one has come away disappointed–bring it back…You will not be sorry.

    My husband and I watched season 1 and 2 for the first time on Amazon. We were devastated to find out that was where it stopped. It was a perfect end of the day distraction after a long day at work. We would love to see a “COME BACK”. The story line was gripping and the characters were easy to love or hate (well, maybe dislike a whole, whole lot!!! LOL). This show was incredibly well casted and directed. Pleasssssse, Return.

    We just finished Season 2 and did not realize there were no other seasons coming. We are very disappointed and even more so after reading there won’t be more at this point. I do not want to read a “comic book.” That is just not the same as watching the series. So hope this changes and we see more episodes coming back. I really hate it when you start watching something so good and then it is cancelled, usually for nonsensical stuff. So hope they bring it back.

    Jericho was great but questionable. It wouldn’t take 27 (or whatever) nuclear bombs to collapse the US. Look what happened right after 9/11. And did we really need the conspiracy? Wouldn’t life be chaotic and dangerous enough without it? Also, what’s going on in the rest of the world? If the US suddenly vanished from the world stage, would it be business as usual for everyone else? I don’t think so. The sudden destabilization of the precarious geopolitical balance would probably cause chaos and catastrophe around the world. Finally, don’t you think a lot of Mexicans would want to take back what was taken from them a while back? Like maybe TEXAS and CALIFORNIA for starters? Lots of loose threads there.

    About 2 years ago I had a nasty case of the flu. I stumbled across this show and watched it straight through in 2 days. Even though I still had Netflix I bought the box set. A show this good needs to be in any DVD collection! So now Anytime I’m sick this show is just as important as Tylenol and Campbell’s chicken noodle soup! I have faith in the show being revived. It already happened once, maybe loyal fans can bring it back a 2nd time! …just no nuts this time. Lol

    If CBS does not pick this up, AMC should consider. The post apocalypse scene is similar to The Walking Dead, although it is not full of zombies, it would draw the attention or grab those type of viewers. I love the show and hope very well they do bring it back for a 3rd Season, the comic books to me where too short.

    Just started to watch Jericho about two months ago on Netflix, didn’t know about it being cancel or that it had being cancel before but if it got me hook on to the story line and the characters after almost five years of it being cancel, I would think that there is hope for this show to drop on not only third seasons but also the remanding 3 seasons as well, this is a great series and I would like to see the end of it all, I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way, so it will be awesome if they could get down to it with netflix and all, I’m sure it won’t be a waste of time or money because with as many members Netflix got I’m sure there is plenty of people wanting more out of these series. So long hope one day soon we get to see some more Jericho.

I have been watching it on Amazon prime, but I have both netflix and Prime for thier emerging original content. The house of cards on Netflix was great and Orange is the new black is enjoyable. It’s exciting to see the futute of TV devlope all over again for my generation. The Tv version of ZombieLand had allot of potential if the writing was better.

    This show had been my favorite until The Walking Dead aired. Look at the success that show has found. I think the problem with “Jericho” was bad timing and poor marketing. Every year the networks air lame shows with no guts or glory. Every year they try some thing to see if anyone will like it. We are telling you, viewers liked this show and even more will watch it if you bring it back.

Someone needs to get the finger out and market it better as I like many wouldn’t have known about it had it not been for netflix. Out of all the shows out there none compare to Jericho. Hands down best series I’ve ever watched. How come its always the good shows that get marketed wrong and get cancelled and all the crap waste of time ones air for so long it’s just wrong like. Bring it back for Christ sake and look at these comments it will be a smash hit

    Hmmm – the speculation with Jericho has been bubbling under for a few years now. Is there any real movement on reviving this show? Best thing of its kind that I’ve seen since the original UK BBC 70’s show ‘Survivors’. Much longer and the stars will be too old to reprise their roles.

    Several posters have commented that the cancellation was due to bad marketing and transmission in the ‘graveyard’ timeslot. Too many great shows have been cancelled before their time (Firefly, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dollhouse, etc.), for similar reasons. Glad to see that The Walking Dead managed to buck the trend and is still going strong.
