Jericho Shot Alternate Ending

Carol Barbee, executive producer of CBS' post-apocalyptic series Jericho, told TV Guide that she shot an alternate ending to the upcoming second season that will wrap up the show in the event it isn't picked up for a third season.

The show, which was canceled at the end of its first season last year, was revived after an aggressive campaign by die-hard fans who mailed CBS tons of peanuts, an allusion to a line of dialogue in the season finale. The seven-episode second season begins in January.

"The ending that we planned was always meant to be a payoff for the seven-episode arc," Barbee told TV Guide this week at a party to launch the show's first-season DVD set. "It won't close off the whole story, but it will show you where we would go in a third season." If the show isn't renewed for a third season, "it gives you a huge mythology so that you understand so much about what has happened," she said.

When the show returns, the small town of Jericho, Kan., will again be in total chaos. "We [left] on the brink of war with New Bern," said Barbee. "The government has broken up into factions, and there are several people claiming to be the legitimate government. One of them is in Cheyenne, Wyo., so the Cheyenne government comes to town."

What happens next is a mystery. "They're there to stop the war with New Bern, but they're also there for a secret agenda," Barbee told the magazine.
"We're fans first, journalists second."

I'm very glad they have a definite ending ready. I enjoyed the show, but I'm guessing this is probably it. :(
