Jericho is an American television drama series produced by Carol Barbee,[1] Jon Turteltaub,[2] Dan Shotz,[3] Jonathan Steinberg,[4] Josh Schaer,[4] and Stephen Chbosky.[4] The series is set in the fictional town of Jericho, Kansas in the aftermath of the simultaneous nuclear attacks on 23 American cities. Significant story arcs in the first season are the immediate aftermath of detonation of the bombs, the resulting isolation of the town, and confrontations between family, friends, bandits, and neighboring towns.[5] The second season focuses on 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.[6]

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,[7] the show was not renewed.[8] After a large fan outcry[9] CBS ordered seven additional episodes for a trial second season,[10] which began airing on February 12, 2008 and ended on March 25, 2008. Though the second season received favorable reviews,[11][12] it was ultimately canceled.[13]

Seasons one and two of Jericho have been released on DVD for Regions 1, 2, and 4 and a "Complete Series" DVD has been released for Region 1 and 2.[14][15] Episodes of Jericho are also available in various new media formats. iTunes,[16] Amazon Unbox[17] and Netflix[18] sell the episodes, and CBS streams the episodes for free on its website.[16][19] The series did exceptionally well online, which was a complicating factor in deciding to cancel the series.[20]

Jake devises a plan for a group of volunteers, "Four Horsemen", to search for news, but it is interrupted by a faint news report of similar attacks on other major cities.

Hawkins had infiltrated his assigned terrorist group sufficiently to obtain several of the bombs, but his handler, Sarah Mason, insisted on getting all of them. When the extremists learned of Project Red Bell, they moved up the date of their attack. Robert took his bomb (destined for Columbus, Ohio), alerted New York police about their bomb threat, and moved with his family to Jericho, as it was the designated "safe" fallback town.

Jake tells Maggie Mullen, a fake Marine from "Semper Fidelis", to give up Hawkins' location at Heather's friend Ted's cabin. Hawkins kills the police officers sent after him, steals truck full of mortar bombs, and detonates it in the middle of New Bern.

Gray sends a small force to attack the artillery squad; only four of them return. Gray seems willing to surrender, but Johnston Green does not allow this. Emily meets her father, Jonah Prowse, and convinces him to help Jericho. Dale raises a militia, and although he wishes to use it for his own financial gain, he agrees to help the town. The two groups join with the main Jericho force and kill the entire New Bern artillery squad. Jonah, who had originally agreed to help in exchange for half the resources gained, instead executes the wounded New Bern soldiers, takes all of their resources, and leaves. Constantino says he will be coming with a much larger force. Hawkins reveals a secret arsenal of weapons and arms every able-bodied person. Johnston takes military command, and they prepare to face the invading force.
2222"Why We Fight"Sanford BookstaverCarol Barbee & Jonathan E. Steinberg7.72May 9, 2007 (2007-05-09)TO THE FLAG

This episode is interspersed with flashbacks to Eric and April's wedding day, when Jake was inebriated. People expected Jake, who was best man, to be unprepared to deliver his wedding toast, but he was not.

New Bern begins its attack on Jericho. Initially outgunned, Jericho manages to drive them away, with the aid of Hawkins' satellite access and the tank. Johnston Green is mortally wounded and dies soon afterward. While Hawkins tracks New Bern reinforcements, Thomas Valente, now a member of the new federal government, locates Hawkins. Darcy Hawkins, now reunited with her husband, speculates that Valente wants to destroy the bomb before it can be used as evidence against him. Heather Lisinski, who is being treated at a military base, urges Colonel Hoffman to intervene in the Jericho–New Bern battle. Although Hoffman claims he cannot, Thomas Valente tells him to stop the battle and search for a nearby "terrorist". The episode ends on a cliffhanger; Jake replies to Constantino's call to surrender with, "Nuts!" The battle begins as Hawkins spots an incoming squadron of military helicopters.

Major Beck, the military commander of the region, declares that the Jericho-New Bern feud is over and offers general amnesty to all, believing that penalties would only strengthen the feud. He also appoints Heather Lisinski to be an ambassador between the two towns. Angered by Beck's declaration, Jake, Eric, and several of the Rangers plot to kill Constantino. However, Hawkins abandons the plan, and Beck warns Jake not to try anything. When Eric decides to go ahead anyway, Jake tries to stop him, offering a credible story to Beck to save his brother's life. Jake then accepts an offer from Beck to become Sheriff of Jericho. Meanwhile, Robert and Darcy Hawkins meet with a newly arrived member of Robert's team, Chavez, who informs them that the former United States of America has been split into three parts: the ASA, composed of the former western states, and the United States of America, reformed with the eastern states; the border between these is the Mississippi River.

A California reporter arrives and explains to Jake that the ASA tells newspapers what to publish and often covers up bad news. Jake tells the reporter that he has news of the attacks, but the reporter turns up dead shortly thereafter. Chavez, Robert, and Darcy covertly download several Presidential files, but Chavez is exposed and captured during the attempt. Jake slips Chavez a key, and he escapes from military custody.

After Heather talks with another town plagued by the virus, Jake tells Dale how to hijack a J&R transport truck. Though Goetz is suspicious and tortures Dr. Kenchy to try to obtain information, a friendly J&R employee falsely informs him that the vaccines were destroyed, allowing the town to be secretly inoculated. Meanwhile, to protect his identity, Hawkins tells Beck that he is an FBI agent loyal to the United States of America who is also looking for Sara.
