JUSTIFIED: FX Network TV Show Renewed for a 5th Season

Justified Fire in The Hole

Justified Renewed for Season 5. The FX Network TV series Justified has been renewed for a fifth season. Season four of Justifed is the weakest of all four seasons, sometimes better than season four of Fringe, sometimes worse (which is terrible crown to wear). The story-line for this season is idiotic: it all hinges on a driver’s license that (Criminal A) gives to (Criminal B) to destroy instead of: 1.) Criminal A cutting it up, 2.) burning it, 3.) burying it, 4.) throwing it in a river, 5.) dropping it in wet cement, 6.) putting it in a bucket of acid, et cetera. I hope the plot-line to season 5 makes more sense.

On Justified:

Justified is an American television drama series developed by Graham Yost. It is based on Elmore Leonard’s novels Pronto and Riding the Rap and his short story “Fire in the Hole”. Its main character is Raylan Givens, a deputy U.S. Marshal. Timothy Olyphant portrays Givens, a tough federal lawman, enforcing his own brand of (at times extralegal) justice in his Kentucky hometown. The series is set in the city of Lexington, Kentucky, and the hill country of eastern Kentucky, specifically in and around Harlan.

Justified premiered on March 16, 2010, on the FX network. The show was renewed for a second season, which premiered on February 9, 2011. A third season of 13 episodes was announced on March 29, 2011, and premiered January 17, 2012. A fourth season of 13 episodes was announced on March 6, 2012 and premiered January 8, 2013. The show was renewed for a fifth season, which is scheduled to premiere in January 2014.

Justified has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its acting, directing, art direction, and writing, as well as for Olyphant’s lead performance. Justified has been nominated for seven Primetime Emmy Awards as of 2012, with two wins, for Margo Martindale’s performance as Mags Bennett and Jeremy Davies’ performance as Dickie Bennett.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is something of a 19th century–style Old West lawman living in modern times, whose unconventional enforcement of justice makes him a target of criminals as well as his U.S. Marshals Service bosses. As a result of his controversial but “justified”, quick-draw shooting of a mob hit-man in Miami, Givens is re-assigned from Miami to Kentucky. The Lexington, Kentucky Marshals office’s jurisdiction includes Harlan County (a hopelessly impoverished, backwoods coal-mining community in southeastern Kentucky), which Raylan hates, and thought he had escaped for good, in his youth.
