Justified: FX TV Series to be Renewed for Season Three

Justified season threeAccording to Deadline, FX is close to renewing Justified for a third season. The deal with Sony Pictures will likely be in place by the time of FX’s upfront party in New York on Tuesday. Timothy Olyphant and others in the cast are slated to appear at the event.

Though Justified has recently stumbled a bit in the ratings, the numbers for the current season are up when compared to the first season’s. Airing last spring, season one averaged a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.42 million total viewers. This season, Justified has been averaging a 1.0 rating and 2.63 million viewers.

Combining the viewership for multiple airings of each episode, Justified is reportedly drawing about 7.4 million per installment. That’s close to the cumulative numbers for the cable channel’s popular Sons of Anarchy.

What do you think? Are you a fan of this TV series? Would you like to see Justified return for season three?

    Statistics are just that statistics, it doesn’t stop the fact that faithfully every week my fiancee and I would be in front of our tv screen anticipating what was happening next on this great series. As I have gotten older, and now all the reality tv, it was refreshing to be able to get into a series again. All the excitement and suspense every week was great and it left us wanting more. I have been avidly searching the internet to find out when Season Three would be starting to be disappointed yet again :( (Loved a couple other shows that got axed during the writers strike). Please don’t let us wait any long….we absolutely love the show and anticipate another season.

    Yes , Please, I love the show and the characters are fantastic. So nice to have something different for a change, we needed another series where Timothy Olyphant could wear a cowboy hat.

    I would love to see the show come back. Timothy Olyphant is a great actor and the people that work with him are awesome. I dont miss an episode.
