Jericho centers on the residents of the fictional post-apocalyptic town of Jericho, Kansas, in the aftermath of nuclear attacks on 23 major cities in the contiguous United States. Produced by CBS Paramount Network Television and Junction Entertainment, with executive producers Jon Turteltaub, Stephen Chbosky, and Carol Barbee, the show was broadcast in more than 30 countries.
The show ran on CBS from September 20, 2006 through March 25, 2008. It was canceled after its first full season. An amazing fan campaign was able to convince the network to bring the show back but it was canceled for a second time after that run.
In 2007, Jericho was ranked #11 on TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever. IDW Publishing released a new comic book series for Season 4 in August 2012.
