Jericho is a television drama series produced by Carol Barbee,[1] Jon Turteltaub,[2] Dan Shotz,[3] Jonathan Steinberg,[4] Josh Schaer,[4] and Stephen Chbosky.[4] Set in the fictional town of Jericho, Kansas in the aftermath of the "September attacks",[5] simultaneous nuclear attacks on 23 American cities, the series follows the town's struggle to survive. The first season begins with the detonation of the bombs, the resulting isolation of the town and confrontations between family, friends, and even neighboring towns.[6] The second season begins with the arrival of a new federal government, the imposition of a police state, and Jake Green's (Skeet Ulrich) and Robert Hawkins' (Lennie James) attempt to expose the masterminds behind the attack.[7]

Jericho originally aired from September 20, 2006 to March 25, 2008 on CBS in the United States. For the first season, 22 episodes were ordered and separated into two runs of 11 episodes each. The series went on hiatus after the "fall finale" episode of November 29, 2006, and returned with a recap episode on February 14, 2007. The remaining 11 episodes of the first season were then broadcast from February 21, 2007 to May 9, 2007. Because of lackluster results during the latter half of the first season,[8] the show was not renewed.[9] After a large fan outcry[10] CBS ordered seven additional episodes for a trial second season,[11] which began airing on February 12, 2008 and ended on March 25, 2008. Though the second season received favorable reviews,[12][13] it was ultimately canceled.[14]

Episodes of Jericho are also available in various new media formats. Seasons one and two have been released on DVD for Regions 1 and 2 and a "Complete Series" DVD has been released for Region 1.[15] CBS streams the episodes for free on its website;[16] as of March 27, 2009, the entirety of season one without commentary and season two with commentary is available.[17] iTunes[16] and Amazon Unbox[18] also sold the episodes. The series did exceptionally well online, which may have been a complicating factor in deciding to cancel the series.[16]
