The team behind Justified will reunite with star Timothy Olyphant for a miniseries spin-off of the FX crime drama that ended way back in 2015.
According to a publication, Justified: City Primeval will cast Olyphant’s gunslinger character Marshal Raylan Givens in a story reimagining the Elmore Leonard novel City Primeval: High Noon set in Detroit. Justified creator Graham Yost will serve as executive producer, while Justified writers and executive producers Michael Dinner and Dave Andron will also serve as co-writers and co-showrunners. Dinner will be arranged.
In this justified revival, Raylan Givens left Kentucky behind in favor of Miami eight years ago, where he is “a walking anachronism balancing his life as US Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl.” “However, a chance encounter on a lonely Florida highway leads him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who has slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s best once before and wants to do it again.”
“When Justified ended, the love and affection for this extraordinary series only grew, leaving audiences wanting more Raylan Givens,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures Television Studios, and Jason Clodfelter, Co-President. “We look forward to re-enacting the magic of Tim, Graham, Dave, Michael and our outstanding executive producing team. We are so excited to continue this remarkable journey with our partners at FX.”
This would be the second time Olyphant has reprized a lawyer character. In 2019, HBO released a two-hour Deadwood film that brought actor Seth Bullock back to life.
