Raylan Givens and his Stetson are coming back. FX has renewed “Justified” for a 13-episode third season, the network announced Tuesday.
“’Justified’ was a critically acclaimed hit series in its first season, but the show has far surpassed our expectations this season,” FX’s President John Landgraf said via press release. “Creatively, the show is on a roll. The performances of Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Margo Martindale and the entire cast are extraordinary. Graham Yost and his team of writers are delivering some of the richest stories anywhere on TV and are doing a brilliant job of being true to Elmore Leonard’s original character, Raylan Givens. We couldn’t be more proud of the work everyone has done.”
With six new episodes remaining this season, “Justified” has averaged 3.9 million viewers for its original Wednesday night broadcasts. That number is up 15% from Season 1. The Season 2 finale will air May 4.
