FX SETS RETURN DATE FOR SEASON TWO OF “JUSTIFIED”

Critically Acclaimed Series Starring Timothy Olyphant Returns Wednesday, February 9 at 10 PM ET/PT
Season Two Will Air For 13 Weeks

LOS ANGELES, December 21, 2010 – Criminals beware: Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is back as FX announced that season two of its critically acclaimed drama series Justified will return on Wednesday, February 9 at 10 PM ET/PT and run for 13 weeks.

Developed by Graham Yost and starring Timothy Olyphant, Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole. Fresh off the epic gun battle that concluded season one, season two of Justified finds Bo Crowder dead and the Crowder criminal grip on Harlan County broken. “Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens” must now face off against the criminal organizations who are moving to fill the void, and he finds himself entangled once again with the mercurial Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins).

The series co-stars Nick Searcy as Givens longtime friend and boss “Chief Deputy Art Mullen;” Jacob Pitts as “Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;” Erica Tazel as “Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;” Joelle Carter as “Ava Crowder,” Boyd Crowder’s sister-in-law; and Natalie Zea as Raylan’s ex-wife “Winona Hawkins.” Walton Goggins also stars as “Boyd Crowder.”

Joining the cast in recurring roles this season are Margo Martindale (Million Dollar Baby, The Riches), Jeremy Davies (Lost, Saving Private Ryan), Joseph Lyle Taylor (100 Centre Street) and Brad William Henke (October Road), who play members of the “Bennett Family.” For generations the Bennetts have been the biggest pot farmers in Eastern Kentucky, and have a long-standing feud with Raylan’s family.

Yost wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Leonard is also an Executive Producer on the series along with Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman, Fred Golan and Michael Dinner who directed the pilot episode. Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.

FX is the flagship general entertainment basic cable network from Fox. Launched in June of 1994, FX is carried in more than 96 million homes. The diverse schedule includes a growing roster of critically acclaimed and award-winning original series, an established film library of acquired box-office hit movies, and an impressive lineup of acquired hit series.

    I love the show “Justified” I was born in Harlan County, Kentucky and this show brings back lots of memories. This show is very realistic of the way of life in that region of the country. I hope the show stays around for a long time.

    The opening paragraph of your article indicates the season premiere is on January 9th, yet the press release indicates the premiere is February 9th….

    Can’t wait to see what happens to Raylan this season–Got hooked on the show last season, but heard somewhere that it wasn’t renewed –nice surprise.

    I’m so excited to see this show coming back! Not quite as excited as I am for fellow FX program “Archer” but time will be the test of which of the two is the better program overall. Also, you accidently wrote “January 9″ in this article — could you change it to February? Thanks. XD

    I was going to give it a try this seasion, but it is going to come on the same time as Hot in Cleveland and Law and Order:SVU. I it seems like Wednessday is becoming the night when all the good shows come on.

    It’s not completely top notch, but better than Deadwood. Timothy Olyphant is an excellent actor. I didn’t like Deadwood honetly, but I really don’t enjoy westerns though. I enjoyed the first season of this show, wasn’t excellent, but stil good. I’m looking foward to the second season.
