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 cancelled 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 cancelled Fox drama Terra Nova
