Brad Beyer and Ashley Scott have reportedly said that they have heard rumours of a Jericho movie, and would be happy to reprise their roles if this was to become a reality.
“We got here and caught wind of a possible movie idea, which we thought was really good. I think Brad had heard about it online the other day, and I just heard tonight, and I thought that would be really wonderful, wouldn’t it? Kind of put a closing on it.” Said Scott in an interview at the Saturn Awards recently, further stoking the fires of a fanbase that managed to resurrect the show from cancellation earlier this year. Beyer also confirmed his enthusiasm for some sort of end chapter for the series, citing the fact that he feels the story is unfinished. “”We kind of feel like it needs some closure, because it still feels kind of weird. I mean, we didn’t get to a whole second season. … I think you can do a lot more with it. I think there’s a lot of different ways you can go with the story.”
Jericho was a troubled production from the start, which was brought back for a seven-episode second season. However, despite popular support for the fan-run “Nuts” campaign, it failed to garner significant ratings, and was once again cancelled for good. Whether or not a Jericho movie actually happens remains to be seen, however SciFiNow suggests that this isn’t likely.
