Justified: FX Series Ending with Season Six

JUSTIFIED: endingAt today’s FX presentation at the TCA winter press tour, FX head John Landgraf said that Justified would be ending with season six. He noted that the decision came from series creator/executive producer Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant.

Landgraf said, “They felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be best served by six years, six seasons instead of seven. So regretfully I accepted their decision.”

Season five of Justified began airing last Tuesday and the premiere was down by 21% year-to-year. It drew 2.84 million viewers versus season four’s 3.59 million.

For the record, FX had not officially announced that Justified would be coming back for a sixth year.

    Justified should have continued on, most of this stuff was common place for the drug wars n Kentucky n the 80s and 90s. The show was great, I just wish they would come back out with Crowder being released , Ava and her son growing up and Raylan still fighting the fight. This was a wonderful series and for me it could have went on for years….I truly enjoyed the shows. In my opinion the show stated exactly how things happened in Kentucky when weed was ruling the state. Our newspapers are not as full as they use to be but my grandfather’s farm had weed and I was there the day the state police come to get it and how the whole scene played out. Weed was a bad thing for Kentucky counties but of course the ones that got rich or the ones that used it would disagree!

    My husband and I rarely watch much television. When friends highly recommended this show to us just last winter, we began binge watching it on Amazon Prime. We are completely addicted, and cannot believe it’s ending. So sad! This is the only show where even some of the “criminals” are likable. We’ll miss all of our favorite characters, especially Boyd and Ava…..not to mention the guy who wants out.

    I’m so sad to see this end! My Husband and I are fans of the this show so much that we DVR it even though it’s on Demand because we sometimes have to see the sode we just watched just in case we missed something we needed to see – or hear. It’s AWESOME!! Come on Timothy, just a couple more seasons??!!

    We need more time to let go! We have to have some time to process the possible ending and it’s just not fair to pull the rug out from under us at the
    beginning of the last season!! Don’t do something like that…it’s just wrong!! PLEASE!! Don’t make us beg!!

      Go to the website of Justified and you will find out your beloved Timothy Olyphant is the one that wants out and that’s why we are losing the show. I say just send him back to Miami or wherever and bring in another crooked marshall and let me keep Boyd who is my favorite character. They have enough material for 3 or 4 seasons but are ending it for good old Raylan Givens. Geez I am so mad at him.
