FX announced today that its critically acclaimed drama Justified will kick off its 13-episode second season Feb. 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Based on the protagonist from Elmore Leonard’s novels Pronto and Riding the Rap and the short story “Fire in the Hole,” the neo-Western centers on Raylan Givens (Deadwood's Timothy Olyphant), a no-nonsense, Stetson-wearing lawman who’s reassigned to his native Eastern Kentucky after killing a gun thug in a Miami hotel. Following the death of Bo Crowder (M.C. Gainey) in last season's finale, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens must deal with the criminal organizations moving to fill that void in Harlan County, while again becoming entangled with the mercurial Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins).
Returning with Olyphant and Goggins are Nick Searcy as Chief Deputy Art Mullen, Jacob Pitts as Deputy Marshall Tim Gutterson, Erica Tazel as Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks, Joelle Carter as Ava Crowder and Natalie Zea as Winona Hawkins. They're joined by Margo Martindale, Jeremy Davies, Joseph Taylor and Brad William Henke as member of the Bennett family, a clan of pot farmers that's feuded with the Givens family since Prohibition.
