FX’s ‘Justified,’ the Western-flavored drama starring Timothy Olyphant, has been renewed for a third season.

John Landgraf, president and general manager of the cable network, made the announcement Tuesday during FX’s upfront presentation in New York, adding that 13 new episodes of the series have been ordered.


‘ ‘Justified’ was a critically acclaimed hit series in its first season, but the show has far exceeded our expectations this season,’ Landgraf said. ‘Creatively, the show is on a roll.’

The series, which currently is midway through its second season, stars Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, and is adapted from a short story, ‘Fire In The Hole,’ by Elmore Leonard.
