FX Renews 'Justified'
FX has renewed Justified for a 13-episode third season.
“Justified was a critically acclaimed hit series in its first season, but the show has far surpassed our expectations this season,” said John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks.
The drama series, from Graham Yost and starring Timothy Olyphant, currently averages 3.9 million viewers in Season 2, up 15 percent from its first season. Justified also averages 2 million in the ad-favored 18-49 demographic, up 18 percent.
Six more episodes remain in Season 2, with the finale airing May 4 at 10 p.m. on FX.
