Operation Netflix Update
As far as we can tell, there has been no change in the Netflix – CBS talks; they are still stalled.
Netflix is already considering new series for 2014, but is staying silent about which series are being considered. Per the recent articles, Netflix wants to launch five new series for 2014. It is possible that Netflix is considering Jericho for one of their 2014 original shows. This timing is also much more logical, since a long lead time would be needed to align all the schedules of the different actors and creative team from Jericho.
The Jericho Season 4 comic series is being published from Feb – May 2013. The season 4 graphic novel has a June 2013 publishing date.
We are asking you to continue to support Jericho by maintaining contact with Netflix and buying the Jericho comic. As we have said all along, it is the consistent (lately ever increasing) number of fans that Netflix will pay attention to. That combined with high comic sales is Jericho’s best chance of coming back.
The Season 4 comic/graphic novel will start with our Jericho family (minus one) back in Jericho along with an undercover double agent. You can order via these sources:

Netflix Customer Service Chat
Recently, a Jericho fan was in a chat with customer service and he asked about the third season of Jericho. Here is what Netflix said:
“I was able to check into that title for you, we don't have a specific time frame of when it will be released but it is being worked on. Our developers are trying to obtain the licensing.
What I can so is notate your account with feedback that you would love to see more seasons added to the list (we like to hear what the customer want).”
Please note this was from a customer service rep, in a chat session, and should not be considered official news.
