Timothy Olyphant Returns as Raylan Givens in Justified Revival
The Justified: City Primeval revival was announced by US broadcaster FX, with Timothy Olyphant returning in the iconic role of Marshal Raylan Givens.
The new FX series will be inspired by Elmore Leonard’s crime novel “City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit” and will follow Givens’ story again.
The show will pick up eight years after Givens left Kentucky, now residing in Miami with a 14-year-old daughter, following the plot of the meeting between Raylan, a desperate sociopath, and a lawyer.
The producers and creators of the revival series commented that the success of the original show left many fans wanting to know more about Raylan and his trajectory and it was this encouragement that led them to the sequel.
The production portion will feature Dave Andron and Michael Dinner as showrunners, writers and executive producers on the project, while Dinner has been set to direct.
Justified ran for six seasons on FX from 2010 to 2015, earning eight Emmy nominations and two award statuettes, being a big hit in the crime genre.
