FX’s ‘Justified: City Primeval’ to Premiere in July
“Justified: City Primeval,” the long-awaited spinoff to FX’s Western drama, finally has a premiere date. Ahead of Fox’s upfront, the network announced that “City Primeval” would premiere on July 18. Additionally, FX announced the premiere dates for “What We Do in the Shadows” Season 5, “Reservation Dogs” Season 3 and “Archer” Season 14.
First premiering in 2010, “Justified” quickly became a critical darling. Throughout the series’ run, Walton Goggins’ portrayal of Boyd Crowder was nominated for eight Emmys, and both Margo Martindale and Jeremy Davies won Emmys for their performances. The series followed deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), a tough lawman who administered his own brand of justice throughout Appalachia.
Now this beloved universe is expanding thanks to “Justified: City Primeval.” The continuation will follow Raylan Givens after his Kentucky days as he helps raise his daughter. His life will change when he’s forced to go to Detroit to track down The Oklahoma Wildman (Boyd Holbrook). The spinoff was developed by Dave Andron and Michael Dinner. Andron, Dinner and Olyphant executive produce along with Graham Yost, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Peter Leonard, Taylor Elmore and Chris Provenzano. The first two episodes will premiere July 17 beginning at 10/9c p.m. on FX and streaming the next day on Hulu.
