Yay! Jericho will be back soon! CBS has finally announced the date for the new season premiere and the new weekly time slot for the second season of the show. From the official cbs website:
Jericho: Season Premiere
Tuesday, Feb 12 10pm ET/PT
In response to one of the most unprecedented displays of fan support, JERICHO is back for its highly anticipated second season. Catch up on last season’s action and join the Jericho message boards to chime in on the new season.
Official statement from CBS Entertainment:
We have some exciting news and wanted you to hear it first. Later today we will announce Jericho’s return to CBS’s primetime schedule. Seven new episodes will be broadcast on Tuesdays at 10:00 PM, ET/PT beginning Feb. 12.
We hope you will rally around the new episodes of Jericho with the same passion and volume you displayed this summer to bring the show back. The writers and producers have crafted an exciting second season that picks up immediately following the battle with New Bern, as the town begins the rebuilding process, and along the way discovers why their small community is so important to the newly formed government, and what the true intentions of this new government might be.
In success, there is the potential for more Jericho, but we will need your help to recruit new viewers. For your friends or family who have never seen the show, the entire first season can be seen on CBS.com, or on the recently released Season One DVD set.
On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for your continued support of Jericho.
President, CBS Entertainment
