In other bad news (if you watch the show), the creator of Justified and FX President have hinted that Season 6 of the show is expected to be the shows end game.
Showrunner Graham Yost has hinted before that it was the intention to have Justified last for six seasons and at a recent event, FX President Nick Grad has confirmed that six seasons is ‘the plan right now’.
This is why Grad had to say to Variety at the Season 5 premiere of the 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. 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.
The show coming to an end in it’s sixth season makes sense, though with the news of Boardwalk Empire and now Justified, running out of shows to watch.
