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

At the FX TCA presentation today, FX boss John Landgraf confirmed that the next season of Justified (its 6th) will be its last, saying "it was  Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant's decision".  Season 5 of Justified premiered last week.

    the 6th or this current season?

  • Shepherd

    WhoTF are Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant and why do they get to make all of the decisions? lol

  • r0ckmypants

    @marc – Next… so the sixth.

  • cimmer

    I’m not really surprised since Elmore Leonard passed but I’m glad the ending will be planned for, I expect it to be epic. This is a great show with a wonderfully sly sense of humor.


    So glad the decision was made. At least the sixth (and final) season is forthcoming. A truly great series!

    Justified is one of my favorite dramas right now and even though I hate to see it go, I do like what cable and pay cable is doing with ending a dramatic series at the end of it’s creative arc and on it’s own terms rather than just keeping it on the air for as long as they can until the show is just a shell of its once former self.
    Breaking Bad was a perfect example of this.

    @DW – “thank god. horrible show. the writing is bad. the directing is bad. not a fan.”

    I’m not sad about this.
    Love Justified. Its got excellent writing and it’s one of the few shows where the bad guys are truly scary.
    I think its better to let the show go out on top then to drag it out and eventually get cancelled. Glad they’ve given themselves a full season to wrap it up.

    Sorry to see it go, but I’m happy it’s leaving on its own terms. Hope T.O. does some movies (big fan!), and I’ll be watching for Yost’s next project. Also, Coggins needs to find a script somewhere. Boyd is one of the best characters around, played brilliantly. Thanks guys for all the fun.

  • Billiam

    I just started watching this show and am addicted… Great show!!

  • John Wayne

    This is Justified’s 4th season. I have been watching since the first show/season

  • PRW

    This is the 5th season…

    Also since Coggins was originally going to star in Rectify I hope he makes at least one appearance on the show.

  • Dan

    So Sons of Anarchy is done next year as is Justified. Looks like this year will see a lot of veterans ending (HBO has Treme, True Blood, The Newsroom and Boardwalk Empire, FX had Breaking Bad and Mad Men).

    Hopefully The Bridge and The Americans can hold up for FX and American Horror Story doesnt run out of ideas for a fifth season.

  • Charles

    Glad to see Justified going out on it’s own terms. Just hope that this season and next season turn out better than last season.

    Ok, as long as Limehouse, Quarles, and Dickie can make a few more appearances before it ends, I’m fine. I would have preferred a 7th, and I think they should reconsider, but as long as they end it well, I won’t complain too much.

  • richard

    By the way, anyone who enjoys this show really ought to check out Graham’s last show, Boomtown. The DVDS are out of print, but you can find unused copies online for really cheap prices. Also, every episode is on youtube.

  • richard

    It went from 2002-2003.

  • Bryan

    @DW Have you ever watched? May be the BEST written show on TV… Always gets me why people hate on a show, dont like dont watch. There are 300 other channels.
