    Don’t despair! The producers are trying to find a cable network to be Jericho’s new home for a season 3. We Rangers have put ads in “Variety” and “Hollywood Reporter”, right now we have a billboard up in Hollywood and a TV commercial running in the Hollywood area. You can get more info and see the commercial by our own rubberpoultry with voice-over by Brad Beyer at http://www.savejerichoagain.com

    Thank you for a comprehensive review of Jericho. I think you are dead on when you talk about how hard the cast and crew worked to please the fans. It inspired us to work just as hard to find Jericho a new home. And it is working! We have been told by the producers that talks are ongoing, that Season 3 is still a possibility and they are optimistic.

    This will not be on a network but rather a cable station – which is just fine with me. Wherever it is aired, we nutty fans will follow.

    Please check out http://www.savejerichoagain.com and see what all is going on. Also see the posts made by Jon Turtletaub and Carol Barbee.

    The fat lady ain’t singing yet!

    Thank you for such a great review. I was able to relive every episode again through you description. And there’s not a true Jericho Ranger alive that minds reliving the Jericho experience over and over again.

    And thank you for putting my mind at ease. I was a bit concerned when I first read that you didn’t see season 2 when it originally aired. But since you didn’t count anyway, just like the majority of us, I’m okay with that and won’t give you a hard time about it.

    Thank you for the wonderful review of Jericho, and the new Season 2 DVD. And yes, you heard right, we’re still working on bringing back Jericho in some form. With our own commercial in the LA area, the billboard in Studio City, the ad’s in Variety, etc.. we’re confident that CBS Paramount will find someone eager to take over where CBS Network Television left off. You’re right, there’s too much story left to be told here! Thanks again!

    There are millions of folks out here that just loved Jericho. Waiting in the wings for Season 3 hopefully somewhere. Too bad we were not counted. This story has so much more to tell. It’s a shame CBS & other Networks choose to air Reality over Scripted TV. Just my thoughts! Everyday TV has become a huge Reality Show. boring…….

    Thanks for your excellent review of season two. As other commenters have mentioned, the producers are looking for a new home for the series; CBS may have opted not to continue the series, but that doesn’t mean that the series has to end.

    Thank you for your excellent review, not just of the episodes, but also the technical qualities of the DVD. I watched it online at CBS.com, but intend to purchase the DVDs.

    I have my fingers and toes crossed that Mr. Turtletaub and Ms. Barbee find a home for “Jericho” on a cable network because I don’t think the story can be told in a network movie or a theatrical production. A mini-series, perhaps, but the episodes would need to be two to two and a half hours long each for continuity. IMMHO.

    Call me ‘nutty’, but I’m not surrendering my hopes.
