'Justified' to Officially End After Six Seasons


Justified to Officially End After Six Seasons


As speculated last week following its Season 5 premiere, the FX southern drama ‘Justified’ will indeed come to an end after six seasons.

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told reporters on Tuesday at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour of the decision, saying it was agreed upon by showrunner Graham Yost and actor Timothy Olyphant.

Like I’m sure many fans will come to do, Landgraf said he reluctantly accepted the decision to have a stop date for ‘Justified.’

“We talked about it a year ago; they felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be best served by six seasons instead of seven,” he said.

These words reinforce those spoken by FX executive Nick Grad at the ‘Justified’ premiere in Hollywood last week where he said that stopping at six was "the plan right now."

The current fifth season and forthcoming sixth will be created and aired without Elmore Leonard, the award-winning author behind the short story that initially inspired ‘Justified.’ He was given a tribute by the cast and crew ahead of the premiere, with a lengthier feature to find a home in the later home box set.

It’s a bit of sad news for fans, but as those involved with the show have stressed and implied, one doesn’t want a story dragged out for the sake of being dragged out. With an end in sight, it seems the writers can do as they wish to tell the story they want to tell without having to worry about the future.

You can view the Season 5 trailer below.

‘Justified’ airs Tuesday nights on FX at 10/9c.

It appears someone is a tad off. IMDB reports that season 5 is the last. And now even TVRAGE is showing season 5 as being its last. So what is it really?


According to both sites and information it appears season 5 will be the end of Justified. Yet your confuse the issue with yoru article. Could you get the right info and make any changes please?

A friend told me, "you either end as a breaking bad, or you live long enough to see yourself become a dexter" Justified ending after season 6, should see it finish as a Breaking Bad.
