Remember that show on CBS about the aftermath of a nuclear war that was prematurely cancelled (twice)? Yes? Then I think you’ll recall how completely ape-shit fans of the show went after the cancellation, sending CBS executives peanuts to resurrect the beloved series. These are the kinds of dedicated fans that will (kind of) get what they want…eventually.
HollywoodReporter.com is reporting that Jericho will be resurrected! Only this time, instead of a 7 episode stint that will again end in cancellation (we’ve been there before!), the legume-mailing fans will be treated to the post-nuclear-apocalypse mythos presented via comic. According to the report, Devil’s Due Publishing has struck a deal with CBS to produce a Jericho comic which plans to pick up where the show left off and provide answers for some of fans’ burning questions. Holy honey-roast, this is exciting! Big thanks to the Jericho peanut gallery for speaking up! But what do you think? Are you looking forward to munching on the comic sequel or will it just end up as a load of chunky peanut butter?
