Jeremiah is an American-Canadian post-apocalyptic action-drama television series starring Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner that ran on the Showtime network from 2002 to 2004. The series takes place in a future wherein the adult population has been wiped out by a deadly virus.
Developed by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski and executive produced by Straczynski and Sam Egan in the first season, and Straczynski and Grant Rosenberg in the second, the series is loosely based on Belgian writer Hermann Huppen's comic book series, Jeremiah. Aside from the names of the two main characters, the general personality of the protagonist, and the post-apocalyptic setting, there are no similarities between the comics and the series.
The series ended production in 2003, after the management of Showtime decided they didn't want to be producing science fiction programming anymore. Had the series continued, it would run under a different showrunner than Straczynski, who decided to leave following the completion of the production of the second season, due to creative differences between him and MGM Television. Episodes for the final half of the second season did not begin airing in the United States until September 3, 2004.
The series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
