The series was played at an unfavorable time slot, and to confound this, Fox decided to play the episodes out of order, insisting that the 'better' episodes play first.

even after it's cancellation it spawned a theatrical movie release (emphasis yours) That was due to strong DVD sales: As an afterthought, Fox released the 14 episodes on DVD and something surprising happened: The expensive boxed set sold somewhere north of 200,000 copies.

If you're still interested in what happens after season two there is apparently a comic that came out to continue the story where it was left off.

Only seven episodes were ordered for the short second season. There were two endings filmed: the one that aired had an emotional conclusion and many of the fans were satisfied with that. The alternate ending, available in full on the 2nd season DVD, was the original ending that led into season 3. The Jericho comics/graphic novels continue the story from ...
