While nothing formal has been announced, it was revealed at the TCA panel today by FX CEO John Landgraf that flagship series Justified will end after a sixth season. However, the show just recently started airing its fifth season with ratings slightly below that of last season. So a renewal hasn’t been finalized either.
After meetings with showrunner Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant, it appears that the big powers involved feel that the storylines of these characters were drawing to a close.
Landgraf stated, “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. Regretfully, I accepted their decision.”
