It's official. According to several sources, Jericho, the CBS drama about a Kansas town dealing with the aftermath of a terrorist nuclear attack on over 20 major U.S. cities, has been saved by fan support.
CBS has agreed to bring the show back for seven episodes at a time to be determined.
The slightly bad news is that the show will have a smaller budget, so there may be fewer characters around than before, and another TV show already got dibbs on the town set that Jericho used, meaning Jericho will have to share settings and schedule things carefully. So, the scope of the show might possibly be narrowed somewhat in characters and locations.
However, the good news is that the seven episodes are not necessarily intended to wrap the show up for good. CBS is keeping their minds open to extending the show's 2nd season and/or giving it a 3rd season. It all depends on how well the next seven episodes perform.
