The show was canceled, but brought back by a fan campaign. A second season was shown in 2008, detailing the rise of an oppressive new government based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but the show was again canceled due to low ratings. (Although the last episode tied up most of the immediately-dangling plot-threads.) There was talk of a feature film but when no where but 2011 there was a six-comic series called ''Jericho Season 3: Civil War''.

* Deconstruction: The whole idea of a "post apocalyptic world" is deconstructed here. While it never gets as harsh as other portrayals, we see how the seeds of such events are sown.

* MenDontCry: Averted. Sometimes {{ManlyTears}} and sometimes more realistic puffy-eyed [[InelegantBlubbering gut-wrenching sobbing]]. Played straight with [[{{Badass}} Robert]], though, who probably had his tear ducts surgically removed along with [[TheStoic most of his soul]].

* ScaryBlackMan: [[{{Badass}} Robert]]. [[TheStoic Robert]]. [[LivingADoubleLife Robert]]. He is actually the only black man in the show ([[JustifiedTrope though it is set in rural Kansas]]), and even by the time we know he's a good guy, he's still a scary-ass man.

* {{Badass}}: Most notably Hawkins, but Jake too. Teenagers Allison, Dale and Bonnie each got one incident that was enough to earn them [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome badass status]] for a long time.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: [[spoiler: {{Deconstructed}} with that trope being few of many reasons for the fake marines' ruse being found. From using Hooah (US Army term) to addressing Sergeant as "sir". Also help out that Johnston Green was former Army Ranger.]]

** Episodes where the characters leave town and explore the outside even further underlines how easy the citizens of Jericho has it. Pretty much everywhere else has fallen to violence, anarchy, and complete collapse of order. While Jericho has energy, a salt mine, farm land, and is out of reach of radiation zones, all while maintaining diplomacy and law. It positively enrages all the other towns nearby.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactEavesDropping: The prisoners disguised as police men step out of the car to discuss something so that Heather can listen to the police report and learn about the missing deputies. The report stops exactly by the time the guys come back, so they would not suspect anything.


Added DiffLines:

* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: In episode 2, when the deputy sheriff describes the aftereffects of radiation poisoning to the billiard playing gang.
