It’s a familiar story: a different kind of show garners a dedicated cult following only to be cancelled abruptly. In this case, the cult of “Jericho” scored a victory, bringing it back to the air – only to be cut short by the writer’s strike and ultimately canceled again.

The series follows Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich), who returns to his hometown in Kansas on the very day nuclear bombs go off in cities around the country. Jake, along with his father, the town’s mayor, must deal with interpersonal issues as well as managing the situation in the isolated town as threats from within and from outside arise.

Special features include commentary tracks, deleted scenes and several featurettes.
