FX Renews Justified for Season 4

Pour yourself some Pappy van Winkle! FX went through some paperwork today, and in the process got out its giant rubber "RENEWED" stamp and slammed that puppy down on Justified's contract. In other words, FX has renewed Justified for a fourth season. Look for the series to return next year for 13 more episodes.

According to FX, Justified's third season is averaging an eight-percent increase over the total viewers and 18-49 demo from Season 2. Last year it joined the Emmy party with nominations for star Timothy Olyphant and supporting actress Margo Martindale, who took home the prize.

Look, I don't want to stir up any manure, but it has to be said: Justified is currently the best program on FX, a cable channel that's overloaded with superior series. The cast is one of the best on television, the dialogue is better than anything else on TV, and Olyphant wears one of the best hats in the business.


Justified airs Tuesday nights at 10pm on FX.

    2 wins in 2 days!! The demise of Terrible Nova and renewal here!! I'm gonna buy a powerball today!!

    Why do you care if Terra Nova was canceled? It could go on for 30 years and if you didn't like it you could have just not watched.



    I don't understand why people take joy in stuff like this. It's so petty.

    He makes that hat look good!

    Awesome! It's about time they guaranteed that.

  • LiseLotteDive Mar 07, 2012

    Why isn't anyone talking about Southland, also one of the BEST shows on tv?

  • msdione22 Mar 07, 2012

    Wonderful news!! FX knows what its got and did the correct thing by renewing it. I do agree that Justified is one of the best shows on FX. It joins my Sons of Anarchy's high rankings. Raylan and his hat has the best relationship. LOL!!

    Was there any doubt??

    Justified is definitely the best show on TV right now. Yes, even better than The Walking Dead, with Person Of Interest coming in a close second (although some might disagree. The show's popularity is beyond question).

    The FX Network has some good people working behind the scenes.
