Time to celebrate: Justified fans! FX has picked up the series for a fourth season!
The network announced today that it's officially ordered 13 more episodes of the Timothy Olyphant-led show, which is currently in it the middle of its third season…
Still six episodes left of season three, and FX is already asking for more.
Nick Grad, FX Executive Vice President of Original Programming, says in a statement: "Justified is one of television's best series and this season has reinforced that excellence. Graham Yost and his writing team continue to deliver compelling material and richly drawn characters brought to life by the brilliance of Timothy Olyphant and our terrific ensemble cast. Their work is validated by universal acclaim, awards, and ratings that have grown every year. We look forward to many more seasons to come."
Yost, who developed the series for television based off the short story "Fire in the Hole" by Elmore Leonard, is clearly anxious to get working on a new season after the current season ends on April 10.
""There are many reasons all of us on Justified are grateful to get a chance to do another season," the showrunner says. "We get to do more work with amazing actors, writers, producers, directors, musicians, editors and a jaw-droppingly talented crew. We get to keep doing a show that appeals to a wide demographic: people in Harlan, retired U.S. Marshals, criminals (we honestly did hear that), and, most happily, our guide, our muse, Elmore Leonard.
"Best of all, we get to keep doing a show on FX (and while that may sound like craven ass-kissing, when you look at their roster, you can't help but feel grateful to be on that list)."
Justified airs Tuesday nights on FX.
Now is the time to head on down to the comments and celebreate the renewal, Justified fans! We'll be joining you.
