      Season 2 – Jericho

      2008 Drama Mystery & Thriller List
      60% 10 Reviews Tomatometer 82% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score A nuclear mushroom cloud appears on the horizon -- and for the residents of Jericho, a small Kansas town, it could mean they're the only Americans left alive. Fear of the unknown propels Jericho into mayhem, causing the town to come apart at the seams. Secrets are revealed, personal agendas take over and even the most sensible people become paranoid. But even in a time of crisis, some folks will find an inner strength they never knew existed, causing them to emerge as the most unlikeliest of heroes. As the citizens slowly rebuild Jericho, however, they also find themselves in a bitter turf war with the residents of another town, New Bern.

      Jericho — Season 2

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Jericho improves in a redemptive second season that better explores the premise of humanity starting over, but the series still suffers from a thin approach to weighty material and conspiratorial plotting that strains credulity.

      Previous Marc Vera Entertainment Weekly Was it good? Was it bad? For me, it was neither. It was simply "meh," and I'm glad the misery is over. Sep 28, 2018 Full Review Joanna Weiss Boston Globe If the plots in Jericho can be a little too transparent, the ideas are fun to chew on, in a what-if sort of way. The world is well-constructed, down to the details. Sep 28, 2018 Full Review Maureen Ryan Chicago Tribune Compressing an entire season's worth of action and twists and turns into a mere seven episodes, Jericho barrels along like a runaway train, stopping only to take on fresh shipments of paranoia. Sep 28, 2018 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Was this resurrection worth the effort? In a word, yes. Sep 28, 2018 Full Review Seth Freilich Pajiba Well the good news is that the show is kinda-sorta ratcheting up the focus on the "what happened" story, plus it's looking more into how the country as a whole is dealing with its post-nukey self. The bad news is, I totally don't care anymore. At all. Jun 13, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous yemarb1 Very original and engaging show, watch all the seasons. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/29/22 Full Review Jnis M One of my all time favorites. Rewatch almost every year. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/22 Full Review simonomis I want more of this! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/30/22 Full Review Audience Member Great show obviously witch was very likely cancelled for political reasons. Still interesting today... Maybe more than ever. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member With a recap of the first season then a rushed finale that was cut short by uninterest, Jericho season 2 fell short and was cut off of life support. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Maybe the best thing about this show is that this story is told entirely from the perspective of the residents of a small town in Kansas. The audience learns about the events that begin the series, and completely change society, along with the residents of Jericho: organically, in drips and drabs, at first. This fairly unique storytelling approach creates the kind of suspense and realism you won't find in many other TV shows.
