It's disappointing news, to say the least. CBS has cancelled Jericho - again. Instead of looking forward to a cliffhanger, this week will not be the last hurrah.
"The March 25th episode of Jericho will be the series finale," CBS said in a statement. "Without question, there are passionate viewers watching this program; we simply wish there were more. We thank an engaged and spirited fan base for keeping the show alive this long, and an outstanding team of producers, cast and crew that went through creative hoops to deliver a compelling, high quality second season. We have no regrets bringing the show back for a second try. We listened to our viewers, gave the series an opportunity to grow, and the producers put a great story on the screen. We're proud of everyone's efforts."
How are you reacting to the news? And any guesses on how it all will end?
Posted earlier this month:Season 2 of Jericho is nearing its end and, since we haven't chatted about it here since the premiere, I thought I'd float a few lines to get your thoughts. While I wasn't that impressed with the first couple weeks, it's now moving full-steam ahead, and has opened up a lot of new threads, especially in terms of who's good, who's not-so-good, and who is good, but does not-so-good things. Case in point - Stanley's reaction to his sister's death. The conversation he had - signing goodbye and telling her to say hi to their parents - moved you to tears, but then he goes out and pulls the trigger on Goetz. What? But that's what's making the show so intriguing. The writers could have ended that story with the expected scenario of Jake talking Stanley down, Stanley lowering the gun, and the Jericho people take Goetz into custody. Instead, they do something that makes you jump. And what's up with Hawkins? Is he a good guy trying to save the country, or is he actually working to finish the job of destroying it? Then there's Beck. Just when you thought he was starting to figure things out and be on Jake's side, he heads to New Bern and, we hear, cracks down. Jake is a question, too. My master control friend, Shane, is convinced he might not be the good guy we all think. What do you think? What will leave us hanging the next two weeks?!
