TV Guide article

I'm sure this has been spread around already, but it didn't show up here yet so here it is. TV Guide had an article about Jericho coming back, and had this to say:
The show could resurface as soon as October (depending on how quickly CBS' first fall casualty croaks), the budget is smaller, and a "great cliffhanger" will cap the seven-episode encore. So executive producer Stephen Chbosky tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Speaking to money matters, Chbosky says the tighter wallet will embody itself in less-frequent guest stars and fewer road trips for Jake and the gang. For example, "In Season 2, we want to investigate and explore Cheyenne," he reveals, "and a line producer could say, 'Cheyenne may come to Jericho now.'"

As for the aformentioned cliffhanger, Chbosky tells the paper he won't leave Jericho's passionate fans hanging again if he (alas) doesn't have to: "We know how to wrap up the show if we have to."

Man, we really need to ramp up those ratings for a full second season.
