Jeremiah is a post-apocalyptic television series starring Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

Created and developed by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski and executive produced by him and The Outer Limits Sam Egan, the series is loosely based on Belgium writer Hermann Huppen's comic book of the same name. Aside from the names of the main characters and the post-apocalyptic setting, there are no other similarity between the comics and the series.

The series ended production in 2003 after creative differences emerged between MGM and Straczynski. Episodes for the final half of the second season didn't start airing in the United States until September 3, 2004.

The series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Plot

spoiler In the year 2021, 15 years after a virus kills everyone over the age of puberty (both the event and the virus itself are referred to as "The Big Death"), the child survivors have grown up, living on the scraps of the old world. Some, such as Markus Alexander, see that they have one of two choices ahead of them: continue to live off the diminishing scraps of the old world or begin to rebuild.

Characters

Most of the characters are survivors of the virus who are now in their late twenties or younger.
