Although it often flies beneath the radar of many viewers and gets overshadowed by its bloodier network sibling Sons of Anarchy, FX's Kentucky-set Justified has consistently been one of the best dramas on TV since its premiere in 2010. From its expertly drawn lead characters and its colorful portrayal of the world of eastern Kentucky to its engaging storytelling and smooth handcrafted dialogue, Justified has proven that its more than capable of hanging with its more popular competition.
Season 5 of the critically acclaimed drama premieres Tuesday, January 7 at 10pm on FX, and you can tell because the network is really ramping up its promotion of the series. In addition to the following Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins)-centric teaser, the network has also released several promos featuring crows, no doubt a reference to the Crowe family, who will be heavily featured in the overarching storyline of Season 5.
So go pour some bourbon, put on Dave Alvin's "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive" (because it's obviously the best version of the song), and press play on the following teasers and trailers, because Season 5 will be here before you know it. And it looks damn good.
What do you think? Are you excited for Season 5? Do you hate the crows? Who's better, Raylan or Boyd? Be honest.
