Justified renewed for second season

US series Justified has been renewed by its network FX.

The drama which stars Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens has been granted a second season following the success of the first.

13 episodes have been ordered by FX, with President John Landgraf excited about the prospect, saying: “We are very excited about the tremendous, widespread acclaim that Justified has received from both audiences and television critics.

 “Graham Yost, Tim Olyphant, Elmore Leonard and their talented partners have crafted a uniquely ambitious and entertaining series which is everything we aspired to when we developed the show.”

The show debuted strongly and averaged 3.4 million total viewers in its first run.

“I’m just thrilled, and I’m looking forward to chronicling the future adventures of Raylan Givens,” said the show’s creator Graham Yost.  “To work with an actor like Tim, who was born to play this role, has been a wonderful experience.”

Justified screens on Super Channel in Canada.
