FX orders Second Season of JUSTIFIED

FX has ordered a thirteen episode second season of JUSTIFIED. The series is based on the Elmore Leonard story Fire in the Hole and stars Timothy Olyphant (DEADWOOD, DAMAGES) as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a modern day lawman with a rather strong-handed sense of justice

The series has done strong numbers, averaging 3.4 million viewers, and this announcement was hardly a surprise.

I personally fell by the wayside around the third or fourth episode, but am planning to catch up later this week. I like the characters, but it has not really grabbed me.
