This week's Netflix Resurrection Rumor: CBS' cult favorite "Jericho."
We'd ignore this rumor entirely, but unlike the Netflix buzz involving "The River" and "Terra Nova," this actually originated from a reliable reporter at TVGuide.com
, so who knows?
According to the report, Netflix has approached CBS TV Studios about bringing "Jericho" back in some form and the studio is considering it.
Unlike "Terra Nova" and "The River," but very much like the Netflix-resurrected "Arrested Development," "Jericho" has a proven and dedicated fanbase, though the drama hasn't been on TV since 2008.
You might recall that "Jericho" fans came out in droves and sent tons of nuts to CBS executives to save the show back in 2007. That passion and the surrounding publicity did little to boost the audience in the drama's truncated second season before it was canceled.
