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.

What do you think? Do you like this series? Do you think the time is right to end it?

As normal; a great show thats entertaining, not the normal senseless junk made for the fifteen year old mind! Good writing, great premise, dam good acting, so what happens?
TV executives should be strapped to a chair and made to watch the drivel they put on! Then possibly they might understand the reasons the ratings are so in the crapper!

What a shame. It’s frustrating that they’ll remove such a great show and choose to keep such crap shows on the air. I will greatly miss Justified. I wish they would reconsider their decision.

Yes, like I said earlier it’s because Timothy Olyphant wants off the show and wants it to end. You always get one star who thinks he is bigger than the show and can make movies and more money. The writers said in an article they have enough material for 12 seasons but he wants out. Seems easy enough to me. Transfer him or let Boyd shoot him or even let Boyd’s girlfriend double cross him and kill him and get another agent in there and carry on. I seriously don’t want to lose this show or Walter Goggins, I watch it for him and the way he plays his role. It just seems stupid if they have the material to let one person ruin it all when he can be written out and replaced.

Love the show. Do NOT cancel it.

Do not cancel “Justified”. It is one of the best shows on TV. Most of TV is just junk and trash shows. This is a good down to earth all-American show. Keep it and get rid of some of the trash and junk.

With so much garbage on TV, why get rid of this show?

I seriously do not want this show to end. It is one of the best shows on television and of course it’s because of Timothy Olyphant in part that it is ending. Gosh just shoot him and bring in someone else. It’s Walter Goggins I watch the show for anyway. You can find a crooked cop anywhere, but someone like Boyd Crowder? Now he is interesting, spunky and downright hot.
