Mere hours before one of its best episodes to date, Justified received expected yet exciting news this afternoon: it's been picked up for a fourth season!
"Justified is one of television’s best series and this season has reinforced that excellence,” FX vice-president of original programming Nick Grad said in a statement. “Graham Yost and his writing team continue to deliver compelling material and richly drawn characters brought to life by the brilliance of Timothy Olyphant and our terrific ensemble cast. Their work is validated by universal acclaim, awards, and ratings that have grown every year. We look forward to many more seasons to come.”
The drama's ratings are up eight percent over a year ago, as the first seven episodes of season three have averaged approximately 4.3 million viewers per week.
Tune in tonight at 10 p.m. on FX for an especially tense, entertaining hour and then visit TV Fanatic the moment it concludes for a detailed review.
