Looks like we won’t find out what happens in the town of Jericho after the cliffhanger. In CBS’s announcement of who lives and who dies next season, series wise, Jericho was left off the list of survivors. Like other similar complex SF-tinged shows with a running plot line (Lost and Heroes), Jericho suffered from a long winter break and never quite recovered. Unlike the other two, it isn’t sharing in their good fortune. CBS would rather risk money on unproven new shows than relaunch Jericho.
ABC has released their fall schedule, including a few more SF shows. Lost gets another season, although it will be held until the midseason break to avoid the drop in viewership it experienced this year with the long break. New fare includes the previously announced Geico commercial-inspired Cavemen; Pushing Daisies from Bryan Fuller and Barry Sonnenfeld, about a young man who can bring the dead to life with only a touch, and does so for his childhood friend – but if he touches her again, she will die for good; and Eli Stone, about a lawyer who begins to have odd hallucinations which inspire him to seek greater meaning to life.
