Jericho returned for a second astounding season thanks to unprecedented and impassioned support from its legion of loyal fans, many of whom sent peanuts (reportedly totaling thousands of pounds) to the CBS offices in New York and Los Angeles. Why peanuts? That was a reference to the Season 1 cliffhanger finale, which ended with a character uttering "Nuts." CBS responded by bringing the series back for this concluding seven-episode Season 2 run in the spring of 2008. In the aftermath of a devastating nuclear explosion, and a battle with neighboring New Bern, the once peaceful town of Jericho begins to rebuild itself as it attempts to communicate with the outside world. The newly formed Cheyenne government strives to establish its stronghold in the region, but Jericho's citizens become suspicious of these new leaders as they question their true intentions.
Even a few years later this show is still relevant and very much within the realm of possibility. Great acting and story arcs make this a must see for any fan of good storytelling. It's a shame that it was cut short, the same as Firefly and other greats. At least we can enjoy it on DVD!
I really enjoyed it. The second season did a very good job of creating tension and creating a satisfactory ending. The series did not fall victim to what, I think, eventually killed "Lost". That is, introducing so many characters that you get "Lost" in keeping them all straight.
The prominent use of the gadsden flag means that this series will NEVER be replayed on network televison.
When I suscribed to this series I wasn't aware of the season before the one
you listed..as a result I walked into the middle of the series and didn't know
what preceded..not a good way to start..however the acting, though a bit overdone in spots was realistic enough considering the momentous disaster that
befell the USA..it's hard to immagine such a scenario with 1/2 the country fighting the other half..and of course Ike's beware of the military industrial
complex was revealed to absurd heights in this series. 3 stars!
