FX Networks CEO, John Landgraf, has revealed the news that nobody wanted to hear: Justified will come to an end after Season 6.
Speaking to at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Landgraf admitted:
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. 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.
Say it ain't so!
Justified is one of the most entertaining and well-written shows on TV and I'll be sad to see it go. But if both the showrunner and main star think the show has run its course, then we have to respectfully accept their decision. Doesn't mean we have to like it though.
Are you sad to see Justified go?
