FX Confirms 'Justified' Set To End After Sixth Season
Crime drama Justified is set to end after its sixth season, FX CEO John Landgraf confirmed during conference on Tuesday during the TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Timothy Olyphant and producer Graham Yost made the decision to bring the Emmy-winning show to an end and informed Landgraf, who wasn't wasn't thrilled about cutting a season off the seven that were originally planned.
"It was Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant's decision. I would have liked to have had more Justified," he said. "It's one of my favorite shows."
"We talked about it a year ago," he added. "They felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be best served by six seasons instead of seven.
"Regretfully, I accepted their decision."
Olyphant has starred as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in a small western town since the series began in 2010.
Season five of the show premiered last Tuesday.
