‘Justified’ season 6 will be the end of the Timothy Olyphant led hit show

Justified returned Tuesday, but programming president for FX, Nick Grad says only one more season is planned for hit show.

“We like having shows that rate really well, and there’s an instinct that you want it to go on forever. But it doesn’t,” Grad explained during a brief interview with Variety on Wednesday.

“Another metric that’s important to us [beyond ratings] is, ‘What shows are going to be talked about in the next 20 years?’ If you’re making a great, 80-hour movie, it has to have a beginning, middle and end. Going out at the right time is going to make your show last forever — we want to make shows that stand the test of time.”

Fans may not like the harsh talk of ending the show which just returned.

“As Graham [Yost, creator] has said, they went to Detroit and Florida [for season five], the two very most ‘Elmore’ kind of locations, and they were excited about Elmore would think of the episode and very sad that he’s never going to see this season. But, he’s the inspiration behind all of this,” Grad said of the first episode back.
