FX's 'Justified' Will End After Season 6


"Justified" will come to an end after the show's sixth season.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf sadly confirmed the news, "It was [showrunner] Graham Yost and Timothy Olyphant's decision. I would have liked to have had more 'Justified,' it's one of my favorite shows."

The backwoods Western, which stars Olyphant as U.S. Marshal Raylan, has become a fan and critical favorite over the seasons.

The fifth season premiered earlier this month with a dip in ratings from the Season 4 premiere.

"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," explained Landgraf. "Regretfully, I accepted their decision."

This is a dark day for "Justified" fans but hopefully the series gets the just ending it deserves.

"Justified" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
