JUSTIFIED: Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens. CR: Mark Seliger/ FX

FX has announced that it is picking up Justified for a fifth season at the network's upfront presentation in New York. We will update this post with an official press release when we get one.

    It’s about time they renewed it!

  • JacobYates

    Yay!

  • JacobYates

    Anybody know how many episodes?

  • marc

    I guess 13.

    Basically all FX (drama) series have 13 episodes.

  • Rodrigo

    Awesome – finally!!

  • AaronExplicable

    With the finale being next week I got a bit worried about it’s future. I think it got renewed last year mid season. Anyway great news.

  • cimmer

    Hurray. I thought they would but you never know.

  • Mark3

    Awsome! And the league renewed too! This is great. But i have no clue what FXX is. Or if i can even get it. Thats dumb to move league to a new channel that lots wont get. Ratings arent the best for the league. Unfortunately. But i cant see them getting better with this stupid move.

  • Will

    This is excellent news! Easily one of the best shows on TV. Glad that this was announced before the finale.

    By the way, where’s DW? He’s been running his mouth about Justified getting cancelled for months. I wonder if he has anything to say now.

    @ Mark3, regarding the new FXX I understand it’s currently Fox Sports. Assuming you already get that channel you’ll get FXX. I’m just hoping it’ll be available in HD on my cable system.

    Brilliant news! I just wish Netflix got the rights to broadcast old seasons instead of Amazon Prime.

    We don’t get Amazon Prime in Canada. Is it popular in the US? I would imagine more people have Netflix. And shows can pick up more new viewers that way between seasons.

    Either way Justified is solid and should get a sixth season also. Hopefully even 8 seasons ;)

    Great news! Easily in my top three shows to watch! It’s annoying that they never repeat the eps throughout the year tho. At least this year I was smart enough to DVR them all so I can start back at season 1 and run thru the entire series in order! (I didn’t get FX on Dish until season 3 started, so we had to catch up as we went along and it did get a bit confusing watching 1 & 2 while watching 3).

    Not a shock. This season has been fantastic.

  • dazza

    this is great news one of the best shows on tv so glad its been picked up for a new season

  • David

    What kind of dumb(butt) would think Justified would be cancelled?

  • groove365

    Renewal was Justified….

    *hits self in face with pie*

    I’ll show myself out now.

  • Hillbilly

    Natalie Zea (also in The Following) will be working over time. More Natalie is a good thing IMO. :grin:

    People were concerned about how late the show was renewed. As I know one of the producers, I can say that renewal was never in doubt. There were negotiations going on for a multi year renewal which held up the announcement. In the end they weren’t able to get it done, so the show just got a one-year deal.
