It’s official: Jericho has been resurrected by CBS, seven episodes for next season. Says this afternoon’s memo from Nina Tassler (read the whole thing at the CBS Jericho board, and thanks for the link, Becca):
To the Fans of Jericho:
Over the past few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a prime time television series. You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard.
As a result, CBS has ordered seven episodes of “Jericho” for mid-season next year. In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more “Jericho,” we will need more viewers.
[Ed.: Plea for you to get all your friends to watch the show or else they’ll cancel it again redacted.]
On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of “Jericho” in such an extraordinary manner. Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone. You made a difference.
President, CBS Entertainment
P.S. Please stop sending us nuts
