‘Justified’ Closes In On Renewal At FX according to Deadline

According to it seems the executives over at FX are very close to renewing ‘Justified’ for what would be it’s 3rd season. Hopefully we’ll find out for sure soon, fingers crossed!

While FX executives are clearly disappointed by the audience’s rejection of the critically praised freshman drama Lights Out, which was canceled today, they are pretty happy with the performance of sophomore Justified. So much that they are close to renewing the series for a third season. There is no rush, but the deal with producing studio Sony Pictures TV for Season 3 might be completed in time for FX’s upfront party in New York on Tuesday where the cast of the neo-western crime drama starring Timothy Olyphant is slated to appear, along with actors from the other FX series.


Entertainment Weekly: Spoiler Room – ‘Justified’ scoop!

I can’t wait to see these upcoming episodes!

Hi, I love your column and am thrilled that it’s now twice weekly. Some spoiler scoopage on Justified, please! — Susola
I hope some Boyd news will do the trick. In a chat with reporters this week, Walton Goggins hinted to a big moment of realization coming up for the ever-evolving character that — if you’ve been as awed as I have by this character this season — sounds completely fantastic. “Coming up in three or four episodes, you’re basically going to see what Boyd has taken away from this introspective, this journey within. He’s going to be able to articulate this in a way that Boyd would articulate this, in a poetic way. He’s going to just lay it all out there. Like having taken the time and looked at life from all these different angles, this is what I walk away with,” he says. “It’s beautiful, and in some ways, I think for the audience, hopefully you’ll really understand this guy and not just feel sympathy for him, but you’ll kind of understand it from a birds-eye point of view and you’ll see kind of his worldview laid out in a way that makes sense.”


CraveOnline break’s down ‘Justified’ 2×05 ‘Cottonmouth’

I think they make some very interesting points and key observations, what do you think?

Walton Goggins finally got a showcase episode this season and it’s easily the best one so far. Goggins basically made his name on FX as Shane on “The Shield,” who was also a fascinating character. But Boyd Crowder tops him in complexity. In just a few episodes this year, we’ve seen Boyd struggle to achieve some measure of redemption in his attempt to create a new life for himself. However, no one believes that he’s changed and it all piles up on to him. It’s not that Boyd doesn’t want to be a better man. He goes out of his way to not kill Shelby and even the way he switched the bomb on Kyle would only have killed him if he betrayed Boyd.

Boyd’s use of his cellphone to bug the meeting was a great moment that showed him to be the smartest guy in a room full of people plotting his death. Boyd seems to do a tremendous job of letting people believe that he’s not that sharp when the inverse is actually true. Watching Boyd turn a potentially fatal situation around on his would be killers was a thing of beauty. And this episode demonstrated that Boyd could have carried the entire episode without Raylan making an appearance at all.

I’m also really enjoying the slow burn between Ava and Boyd. It’s pretty clear that he loves her and she’s starting to come around towards him. When she got his note, she suspected that it was for something nefarious. But she followed his instructions anyway. If she was going to hang him out to dry, that would have been the perfect opportunity to do so. Just the fact that she went through with the call shows us that she cares for him.


Good or bad, Walton’s ‘Justified’ character surprises even him

Walton Goggins can cast a spell over you during a phone conversation just as easily as he does playing the magnetic Boyd Crowder in FX’s “Justified.”

He puts everything out there—even when doing an interview at the end of an early morning shoot after he’s been up the night before with his new son, Augustus Somerset. It’s hard not to be drawn in by his zeal for the work he’s doing.

“It’s always exciting,” he said, answering a simple “how’s it going?” “One should be so lucky to be in this situation that I’m in, or any other person on television [is in], who really cares about what they do every day.”

The former “The Shield” star definitely cares, and that translates to “Justified” (9 p.m. Wednesdays, FX), where his mercurial character continues to trouble U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), the childhood friend who just can’t trust Boyd, even if he claims his outlaw days are behind him.

Since last year’s freshman season, Boyd has gone from white supremacist criminal to born-again evangelist to leader of the disenfranchised to disillusioned ex-con. He’s about to change again, Goggins teased.

“I think that he has been without the ability to see himself as good or bad, and through the course of this season, he will acquire a pair of glasses that allows him to see himself really for the first time,” Goggins said, adding with a laugh, “How about that for a quote? Come on, Curt!”

Goggins talked more about working with Olyphant (“like doing a waltz”), being a father and how cool it would be to see Boyd wearing a marshal’s star. Continue reading

Justified Advance Review: 2×05 ‘Cottonmouth’

All I can say is after reading this little tidbit, I am aching for tonight’s newest ‘Justified’ episode!

For those who want to read the article but are concerned about spoilers, there is no need to worry about this review since it doesn’t feature actual “spoilers” rather than a outline of what will happen without filling in the blanks. You can read the entire Advance review at the source, linked below.

In other happenings, Boyd Crowder is apparently back to his old ways, mired in a new business proposition with his “friends” from the mine. To say any more than that one sentence would be egregiously spoiling, but needless to say it is not at all what you think it’s going to be – and it all makes perfect sense by the time it plays out. The storyline also leads to a heartbreaking scene between Boyd and Ava that’s so good, it once again makes me incensed that he hasn’t yet won a major award for this series yet. Joelle Carter is herself just as impressive, and the two of them together has been the most pleasant surprise to come out of the second season for me.


Walton’s ‘Justified’ interview with

Note: If you notice, this entire interview took place in the video posted previously from – But regardless, it is a great interview!

Justified is one of the best shows on television these days, and that is in no small part to the work of Walton Goggins. Goggins was in the pilot, and there was talk that his character – Boyd Crowder – would be killed off, a “one and done.” But in crafting the pilot, they realized they could have some fun with him, and though Goggins was also shooting Predators, they managed to work him in to the first season, with his journey taking over the last couple episodes.

Goggins was wary of returning to television –as he says below – because of the seven years he put in on The Shield. His Shane Vendrell was revealed to be the heart and the central tragedy of the show. His work on The Shield is such that it’s fair to say he created one of television’s most indelible characters. And now with Justified he’s on his way to having two of the best characters put to screen. If this interview is fawning, it’s only because everyone in our group that talked to Goggins was a huge fan, and it was funny to see the women with us melting around him. Timothy Olyphant plays his role like walking sex, but Goggins definitely has his fanbase. Goggins proved to be a great interview, and at the end told us that we asked better questions than the New York Times. I’ll take it.

Your character is what absolutely sold me on this show. He’s one of the most fascinating characters on television right now. Does he know what he’s doing? Does he know if he’s on the path to redemption or not?

WALTON GOGGINS: No pressure on that answer. You know what I think that he…I don’t think that he’s ever taken the time to be introspective, to self-reflect. Last season was evidence of that. I think he started off in the pilot being one guy, and with that near death experience he went running in the opposite direction. Doing the same thing but finding God as a motivation for kind of repeating the same actions. And I think it’s only in the second season that Boyd – for the first time in his life – has looked at himself. Looked at what fuels him as a human being, and looked at his faults as a person, and in some ways has spent forty days in the desert. I think that he will emerge from this fully aware of who he is as a person – and be okay with it. It’s at the end of episode three with the throwing of that guy out of the car – it was very cathartic for him. He needed to grieve in that way, and it kind of manifested through this physical action of hurting another person, unfortunately. Because I think he was so hurt. Continue reading
