Perhaps no canceled show over the past weeks has garnered so much disappointment and response from its fan base as Jericho. The outpouring of support has not been lost on CBS management, with CBS President of entertainment issuing a statement to the fans of the show.
The statement follows below:
To the fans of Jericho:
We have read your emails over the past few days and have been touched by the depth and passion with which you have expressed your disappointment. Please know that canceling a television series is a very difficult decision. Hundreds of people at the Network, the production company and the incredibly-talented creative team worked very hard to build and serve the community for this show — both on-air and online. It is a show we loved too.
Thank you for supporting Jericho with such passion. We truly appreciate the commitment you made to the series and we are humbled by your disappointment. In the coming weeks, we hope to develop a way to provide closure to the compelling drama that was the Jericho story.
Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment
“We hope to develop a way to provide closure to the compelling drama that was the Jericho story”…means what exactly? Webisodes, a novel, a mini-series? Something else entirely?
