The show revolves around the small town of Jericho, Kansas, which is suddenly cut off from the outside world when a series of mysterious nuclear explosions occur across the United States. With no means of communication and limited resources, the town must band together to survive the fallout and fend off desperate outsiders who come seeking shelter.

Skeet Ulrich stars as Jake Green, a prodigal son who returns to Jericho just before the bombs go off. He becomes a reluctant leader and the town's best hope for survival as chaos and danger mount. Lennie James plays Robert Hawkins, a mysterious stranger who has a hidden past and his own agenda for being in Jericho. Ashley Scott is Emily Sullivan, Jake's former high school flame who now runs the local restaurant and becomes one of Jake's closest allies.

Kenneth Mitchell portrays Eric Green, Jake's younger brother who finds himself at odds with his brother's leadership. Pamela Reed is Gail Green, the town's mayor who struggles to keep order and make tough decisions. Shoshannah Stern plays Bonnie Richmond, a deaf woman who becomes a valuable member of the community and develops a complex relationship with Jake.

The show is notable for its realistic portrayal of the aftermath of a nuclear disaster and the challenges faced by survivors. It delves into the physical and emotional toll of living in a world where food, water, and medical supplies are scarce, and where danger lurks around every corner. It also explores themes of loyalty, sacrifice, and the lengths people will go to protect their loved ones.

Jericho is a well-written, well-acted series that delivers suspense, drama, and engaging characters. It has a dedicated fan base and remains a cult favorite among viewers who appreciate its unique blend of post-apocalyptic storytelling and small-town politics.
