Holy fucking fuck!!!


Timothy Olyphant is officially reprising his role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens after FX announced a Justified revival has been ordered to series, titled Justified: City Primeval (via Variety).

“Justified: City Primeval picks up with Givens eight years after he left Kentucky behind,” reads the series synopsis. “He now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl. His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind. A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well.”

A little more information on the return:

Justified: City Primeval is a sequel limited series based on the crime novel, City Primeval: High Noon In Detroit, by the late Elmore Leonard. Olyphant is set to lead the series, reprising his role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens.

“Justified was one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the past decade and an adaption of Elmore Leonard’s work that was so colorfully brought to life by Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens, Graham Yost and the entire team of producers, writers, directors and cast,” says Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment. “To have this group come together again with Tim as Raylan in a new and different Elmore Leonard story is thrilling.”

Still one of the best shows I've watched. Cautiously excited for this.

If I'm being honest, I'm fucking stoked - just know that sometimes it's better to let a good thing die while good.

It's great they're doing a proper time jump. I'd love to see a Boyd cameo but I want this to be a new story.

And you've already started opening the can of worms, cause I absolutely agree with that. Boyd and Raylan are probably my favorite duo on screen for TV shows. It would be nice to see them on screen again but why would he be in Miami.

The show takes place in Detroit 😉

A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again.

Oh well fuck my reading comprehension huh. Point still stands, Boyd wouldn't be in Detroit either :p.
I just hope they don't pull some shit where Boyd is needed to help solve the crime. That's amateur hour and while Justified had it's share of lackluster writing, its still one of the best written shows ever.

I would even argue that from the shows I've watched, THE best. But that's probably not saying much because I haven't watched too many TV shows.
