Timothy Olyphant

Justified has been renewed for a 13-episode fourth season, FX announced Tuesday.

"Justified is one of television's best series and this season has reinforced that excellence," Nick Grad, FX's programming head, said in a statement. "[Creator] Graham Yost and his writing team continue to deliver compelling material and richly drawn characters brought to life by the brilliance of Timothy Olyphant and our terrific ensemble cast.  Their work is validated by universal acclaim, awards, and ratings that have grown every year. We look forward to many more seasons to come."

The drama, based on the Elmore Leonard short story Fire in the Hole, has been averaging 4.3 million viewers — an 8 percent increase from last year — for its third season, which will wrap on April 10.
