Netflix is in talks with CBS to revive cult drama Jericho.
The series – which starred Skeet Ulrich and Lennie James – followed the residents of the fictional town of Jericho, Kansas, as they struggle to survive in the aftermath of nuclear attacks on the US.
CBS originally axed the show in 2007 after one season, but later reversed their decision following a fan campaign. After a seven-part second run, Jericho was canceled once again due to low ratings.
Netflix has now approached CBS TV Studios about the possibility of a third season, reports TV Guide.
The move is fuelled by the success of Jericho repeats on Netflix’s on-demand service, four years after the show’s second cancellation.
Netflix is also producing a revival of axed Fox comedy Arrested Development, and was reportedly in talks to pick up ABC’s low-rating supernatural drama The River.
In March, the company declined the chance to produce a second season of canceled Fox drama Terra Nova.
