Following the examples of Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom, FX president and general manager John Landgraf announced today that Justified will end after next season, which would be its sixth. He stated that the decision came from showrunner Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant:
We talked about it a year ago and they (Yost and Olyphant) felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be served by six seasons instead of seven and I regretfully accepted their decision. I would have liked to have had more Justified. It’s one of my favorite shows.
Season 5 of Justified is currently airing on Tuesdays at 10pm EST on FX.
Tonight: "The Kids Aren't All Right"
So sad it's ending... but its probably for the best. Excited Loretta is back tonight though!
