Developed by Graham Yost and starring Timothy Olyphant, Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard's short story Fire in the Hole.
Fresh off the epic gun battle that concluded season one, season two of Justified finds Bo Crowder dead, and the Crowder criminal grip on Harlan County broken.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Olyphant) must now face off against the criminal organizations that are moving to fill the void, and finds himself entangled once again with the mercurial Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins).
The series co-stars Nick Searcy as Givens' longtime friend and boss Chief Deputy Art Mullen; Jacob Pitts as Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson; Erica Tazel as Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks; Joelle Carter as Ava Crowder, Boyd Crowder's sister-in-law; and Natalie Zea as Raylan's ex-wife Winona Hawkins.
Walton Goggins also stars as Boyd Crowder.
Yost wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Leonard is also an Executive Producer on the series along with Fred Golan, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Michael Dinner, who directed the pilot episode.
Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.
