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.

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.

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.

Never had a doubt! Justified and Breaking Bad are the two best shows on television (SOA is pretty damn close). It's amazing what you can get when the networks not only get out of the way of, but support the creativity of the show-runners and writers. So thankful for FX and AMC!

These are both in my top 5, for sure. Breaking Bad I think is #1 for me, followed by Justified. My "nerd" side enjoys Fringe on Fox, and I do also enjoy Shameless and Californication on HBO. But those are very different shows. Lol

For the last 2-3 years, FX has been my favorite network. Justified leads the pack, but they also have Sons of Anarchy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, and The League. I'll also give them a slight nod for Wilfred, despite having stopped watching it, and for Louie and AHS, despite not particularly liking either.

I can see the Best Supporting Actor category for next year's Emmy being dominated by Justified's cast and characters:



Walton Goggins as Boyd, Mykelti Williamson as Limehouse, Neal McDonough as Quarles, and Raylan's Stetson as "the Stetson" (gets my vote).

... Didn't we all already assume it was already renewed?



I sure did.

This is great news Justified is the best show on TV. Last year after the excellent season 2 ended I was worried they wouldn't be able to hit that high level again, but I was wrong. Season 3 has been terrific and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and all the great new characters will get to see in season 4.

Good news, everyone! I hope the show will use this to take more chances and play less with the Boyd Harlan Soap Opera though, it's time to get back to the main character and his world.

Best show on TV. Provided they don't Son's of Anarchy it in the finale all things will be well. I doubt that will happen, it is just too good to do that. Though that is what I thought about SOA. But this season is just shaping up to be great, I like Limehouse in the background making moves. Quarles, though not the bad guy I thought he was, is fantastic. I really do want them to incorporate the other marshals more this season but Olyphant is doing awesome as Raylan.
