Fan favorite series Jericho will leave Netflix in the US, with both seasons currently leaving the service in mid-August 2021.
First released in 2006, the CBS series ran for two seasons before pulling the plug and being forced to move on as a comic book. Jericho dates back to a time when network television went beyond familiar genres. It’s also one of the first shows to have a huge fan campaign to bring it back.
Heck, there were rumors back in 2012 from TV Guide’s Michael Schneider (who now works at Variety) that Netflix itself might breathe new life into the show, but of course all these years later that never came to light.
The series followed the events of the attacks on major cities in the United States and attempts by society to rebuild. It featured the talents of Skeet Ulrich, Lennie James, Ashley Scott, Kenneth Mitchell, Brad Beyer and April Parker-Jones.
After the show has streamed on Netflix for years, the show’s time on the service is now coming to an end.
Both seasons are current scheduled to leave Netflix in the US on August 16, with your last full day being August 15.
Other Netflix regions have had access to the show over the years, including Netflix UK which lost access to it in January 2017. Netflix US was the last region of Netflix to carry the CBS title.
Where will Jericho stream after leaving Netflix?
The good news is that the show is already available in their new permanent home.
We are referring to Paramount + operated by ViacomCBS, which licenses the series to Netflix. They have been streaming the show since it launched in 2020, although it was previously also available on CBS All Access.
We expect more ViacomCBS shows to depart from Netflix over the next few years, including most of the Star Trek TV library that is still available on Netflix.
