Justified has been renewed for a second season, FX announced Tuesday.
The drama was the most-watched series premiere in the cable channel's history, attracting 4.9 million viewers. Since its March premiere, the show has averaged 3.4 million viewers, 1.7 million viewers in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic.
Created by Graham Yost, the series is based on the Elmore Leonard short story Fire in the Hole. Timothy Olyphant stars as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in the series.
"We are very excited about the tremendous, widespread acclaim that Justified has received from both audiences and television critics," FX Networks president and general manager John Landgraf said in a statement. "Graham Yost, Tim Olyphant, Elmore Leonard and their talented partners have crafted a uniquely ambitious and entertaining series which is everything we aspired to when we developed the show."
Justified, which airs on Tuesdays at 10/9c, wraps its first season on June 8. No start date has been announced for Season 2.
