FX Chanenl Renews Justified for a Third Season


Well this is excellent news — one of my favorite shows on TV, the FX Channel’s modern Western “Justified” has been renewed for a third season. You can expect an official press statement on the renewal later today. This comes on the heels of the channel canceling their boxing drama “Lights Out”. The raunchy animated show “Archer” is also looking good for another season.

I’m really digging the current season of “Justified”, too. The surprising (but very delightful) pairing of Boyd and Ava, the growth of the Bennetts as the season’s heavies, and just when it looks like our hero Raylan’s relationship with ex-wife Winona was starting to come back together again, she goes and does something dumb that ruins it. That was last week’s episode. The next two episodes return to deal with the Bennett clan, with Raylan tasked with watching over a coal executive played by Rebecca Creskoff (“Hung”) who runs afoul of the Bennets. Creskoff, who is really good in the role, cuts quite the figure throughout her 2-3 episode arc.

And with a Season 3 confirmed, you can expect a bang-up finale for Season 2. It’s gonna get real bloody, folks.

    Awesome news! Olyphant was perfectly cast for this role and his supporting cast is top notch. I’ve also always loved Walton Goggins from his days on The Shield. I love the places they take his character Boy. If given the chance and the right project, I firmly believe Gobbins could carry a show on his own, hopefully someday he will get that chance. Anytime Olyphant and Goggins have a scene together it’s awesome stuff.

    Not surprised to hear about “Lights Out”. I looked forward to it before it came out, but about 3 or 4 episodes in I gave up on it. I wasn’t interested in the characters in the slightest and could care less what happened to them. Boxer overcomes adversity …yawn, been there, seen that.

    Between this and Southland I’m getting my cop show fix easily since The Shield. :D
