Netflix In Early Discussions To Resurrect Cancelled 'Jericho'

Netflix has begun discussions with CBS about possibly reviving cancelled drama 'Jericho'.

The show, which followed the residents of a small Kansas town after a series of terrorist attacks leaves the US in a state of disaster, has been off the air since 2008.

However, with repeats of the series continuing to be popular on Netflix, the service has expressed interest in filming new episodes and making it one of its original series.

In fact, the model to be similar to that of 'Arrested Development'. Netflix announced last fall that it would exclusively license new episodes of the series for a 2013 debut, seven years after it was cancelled.

If a deal is reached, Netflix would have to reach out to the actors and crew it wants to bring back and negotiate a shooting timeline that would work for everyone involved.

Interestingly, if it happens, this won't be the first time 'Jericho' has been brought back from the dead.

It was cancelled by CBS following its first season but eventually brought back for a shortened second season after fans bombarded the network with cases of peanuts to express their love for the show.

It was cancelled a second time, despite protests from a passionate fan base, after seven episodes when ratings once again failed to deliver.
