"Jericho" Renewed After All?! "The Black Donnellys" Returns, Too
Now this is insane. TV Guide reports CBS is about to sign a deal to bring back their post-apocalypse drama "Jericho" for a shorter season of 8 episodes to wrap the storylines up giving the show a total of 30 hours.
As long as my memory serves me, if that happens, it will sure be a first.
Fans of the drama bombarded CBS with calls and emails begging that the show be renewed for a second season.
The drama started off the season very well as one of the highest rated freshman series, but ended up losing steam after a 3-month long winter hiatus.
In addition to securing the actors' services, CBS needs to find a new soundstage for the show's sets.
Meanwhile, HDNet has announced it has secured a deal with NBC Universal to air all 13 episodes of the first and the only season of "The Black Donnellys," a New York-set Irish mob drama beginning June 13.
The last 7 episodes have never been broadcast on NBC.
