Breaking: FX Renews Justified For Fourth Season

Bad news for Harlan County’s sharks and scoundrels: FX has renewed Justified for a 13-episode fourth season.

Justified‘s current third season is averaging 4.3 million viewers (up 8 percent over Season 2) and 2.1 million among Adults 18-49 (also up 8 percent).

Justified is one of television’s best series and this season has reinforced that excellence,” said Nick Grad, FX’s VP of Original Programing. “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.”

Justified‘s Season 3 finale airs April 10.
