THEY SAY

Jericho is a drama about what happens when a nuclear mushroom cloud suddenly appears on the horizon, plunging the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they're the only Americans left alive. But in this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed, some people will find an inner strength they never knew they had and the most unlikely heroes will emerge.

WE SAY

Jericho is the TV series that just won’t lie down and die.

Cancelled after one season, a vociferous fan campaign brought it back for a short-lived second season in which many of the loose plot ends from the previous season’s cliff-hanger ending were tied up.

Sort of. The finale for the second season left the door wide open for more episodes, and now comes the news from producer Jon Turteltaub that a full-length Jericho movie that will reunite all of the stars of the TV show is in the pipeline.

According to Turteltaub: “We’re developing a feature for Jericho. It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it gets into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what's going on beyond the town in Jericho."

Little is known on the budget and other details such as distribution (is it made-for-TV, straight-to-DVD or will it actually have a theatrical release?) right now except that "anything would be a huge budget compared to what we were dealing with. If we had $40 million dollars to make a movie with, that's 20 times more than we did before."

Despite the show’s flaws (it felt like a TV soap about the apocalypse at times) we here at Sci-Fi Movie Page count ourselves as fans of Jericho and would welcome any effort to bring it back even if it is just for one movie and not an entire season . . .
