  • Jeremiah may continue...?

    Rumor has it that the Sci-Fi Channel may be considering taking on Jeremiah. http://abyss.hubbe.net/echo/viewtopic.php?t=693
    Doesn't seem that likely given their financial position, but who knows, maybe it will work out. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Well, considering their announcement of their 05-06 season line-up and how they're adding more and more top level new shows and mini-series, money is apparently not a big issue, especially since they're drawing in big names on their new projects. Also, SCI-FI is actually doing very well these days apparently.

    However, that said, they have in fact listed their 05-06 line-up and JEREMIAH is not listed.

      Jeremiah could be brought in by Sci-Fi to replace any of the shows that fail, possibly in 2005.

        This is true...but let us not forget that this is the same kind of hopeful statement made about CRUSADE and we all know where that ended up.

        If it happens, great, but I ain't getting my hopes up, and I'm not counting on SCI-FI for anything. My only trust in that network is in the show runners for SG and the big-time filmmakers that come in for mini-series. As for BG, I will watch and give it a chance.

        But I will never trust the SCI-FI suits again. And to top it all off, I'm not holding out a vast amount of hope for Jeremiah even if it does go to SCI-FI. It will have to loose it's harsh edge and it will no longer have JMS behind it. I think it will end up a pale image to what it could've and would've been. But we'll see I guess.

          I remember reading a post about Jerimiah that had MGM saying it didnt care if the dog was smart. As long as it looked cute.

          I havent seen any of the jerimaih eps myself. I think I'll probably just end up buying seasons one and two, minus a pretender series with pretty make up.....

            I agree that Jeremiah without JMS would not be the same. Do these comments/rumors mean that Showtime is NOT going to air the second half of the second season?

              Recently most of Showtimes top rated shows have been Sci-fi Oddessy 5 was thier top rated show. This how ever did not stop them fro cancelling it, not only did they cancel it they didn't even finish running the shows they had already made. I think due to thier recent treatment of sci-fi it's safe to say we will never see the rest of season two on Showtime. And if they were going to show the rest of season two they certainly would have at least made some kind of announcement by now.

              The only hope Jeremiah season two has is DVD they released the first season hopefully they will release the second. As far as Sci-fi channel picking it up and making more don't hold your breath. Seeing there recent slew of shows it's safe to say quality is not job one at sci-fi channel. Everytime they've had the chance to pick up a quality sci-fi show with a growing fan base they've passed I guess with the exception of Stargate. They turned down Crusade, Firefly,Odessey 5. When they do start something on there own of quality they kill it look at LOTR and the pre-mature burial of Farscape.

              On the possitive side Jeremiah re-runs may pop up in syndication somewhere or another as they shot both a clean for syndication version and a more naughty Showtime version. Who knows maybe even on Sci-fi channel some day but as far new episodes being picked up by any body you might as well forget it it's quite dead.

              But on the positive side without JMS to helm it a season three would only serve to diminish whats already been created.

                I just wish I could find a way to get ahold of the last half of season 2. It's very annoying not to even know how season 2 ends!!!

                  There is a SciFi Wire story up today that pertains to Jeremiah and attempts to keep it alive through other means. Almost entirely in passing, it mentions that Showtime will be showing the last eps in the fall.

                  Whether that will hold in the several months they have to change their mind.... *shrug*

                  The interviewee also mentions SciFi could still pick it up, but the Wire then downplays that very statement.

                    Not Like Crusade

                    Unlike Jeremiah, SFC was in negotiations to aquire Crusade from TNT back in 1999. The asking price from TNT was just to high. They (TNT) also did not want to see Crusade thrive on another network because it would have meant that they let get away.

                      Minor Correction: TNT was not selling Crusade, because it was not their property. It belongs to Warner Brothers.



                      And... Sci-Fi wanted Crusade, but they already had their budget fixed. They literally had $0 available to pick it up. Sad.

                        For those who care and are sick of waiting to see if SHO ever shows the second half of S2 Jeremiah, it is available on some P2P networks (looks like it aired outside of US)

                        I have to say, it is probably the best 8 eps of the series, although I am sure people will debate that. It felt closest to B5 in terms of story and storytelling style. But still, maybe it is because of the impending doom of the show, or lack of single direction, or some bad acting here and there, or some of predictability of the plot (although that is probably because we got used to JMS's thought process by now), or most likely a little bit of all of the above, that left me feeling more annoyed than anything else. It could have been a great show, but it seemed like it was pulled in too many different directions at once and as usually happens with things that get pulled in every direction at once - they go nowhere. On the other hand, Sean Astin kicked ass though.

                            I don't believe it! Showtime is actually going to show the final 8 eps of Jeremiah. So I re-subscribed today, thinking I could also watch Odyssey 5 on Showtime Too... but of course they scheduled it opposite Jeremiah.

                            I want to know how I can get a network programmer's job and make big bucks without any need to engage my brain...

                              More recent news from SciFi Wire on the continuation of Jeremiah... (a show I haven't watched, but may do if it's ever shown in non-pay cable channels)
                              Such... is the respect paid to science that the most absurd opinions may become current, provided they are expressed in language, the sound of which recalls some well-known scientific phrase
