 Seven episodes in, first-run episodes of “Justified” are averaging more than 4 million viewers in its premiere telecasts – about half of whom are aged 18-49 years, which is the age bracket FX says it targets.

Developed for television by Graham Yost and starring Timothy Olyphant, “Justified” is based on the Elmore Leonard character Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens from his short story “Fire in the Hole” and other Leonard novels.

"There are many reasons all of us on ‘Justified’ are grateful to get a chance to do another season,” Yost said in Tuesday’s announcement.

“We get to do more work with amazing actors, writers, producers, directors, musicians, editors and a jaw-droppingly talented crew.  We get to keep doing a show that appeals to a wide demographic: people in Harlan, retired US Marshals, criminals (we honestly did hear that), and, most happily, our guide, our muse, Elmore Leonard.  Best of all, we get to keep doing a show on FX (and while that may sound like craven [heinie]-kissing, when you look at their roster, you can't help but feel grateful to be on that list)."
