Television drama 'Justified' will end its run sometime next year.
The TV drama, currently in its fifth season, will end its run sometime next year.
FX’s Justified will end after its sixth season, network chief John Landgraf announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Los Angeles.
Landgraf said the decision was made by showrunner Graham Yost and lead actor Timothy Olyphant, and that he would have loved for the show to continue. “It’s one of my favourite shows,” Landgraf said.
“We talked about it a year ago and they felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be best served by six years, six seasons ... and so I accepted their decision. We try as much as we can not to make business drive creative.”
Season Five of the cop show premiered on Jan 7 in the US. The series, based on a short story by Elmore Leonard, follows a lawman in rural Kentucky bending rules as he takes on colourful adversaries. Leonard later wrote the novel Raylan about the show’s title character.
Justified has been one of FX’s most acclaimed shows, earning acting nominations for Olyphant. Margo Martindale won an Emmy in 2011 for her portrayal of criminal matriarch Mags Bennett. — Reuters
