JUSTIFIED, ARCHER Receive Season 3 Pick Ups from FX

March 29, 2011 by  

JUSTIFIED, the FX drama starring Timothy Olyphant, currently in the middle of its second season, has received a 13-episode third season order.

A third season renewal announcement for ARCHER, FX’s animated espionage series, is expected to come shortly.

John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks, made the JUSTIFIED announcement, adding the following: “JUSTIFIED was a critically acclaimed hit series in its first season, but the show has far surpassed our expectations this season. Creatively, the show is on a roll. The performances of Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Margo Martindale and the entire cast are extraordinary. Graham Yost and his team of writers are delivering some of the richest stories anywhere on TV and are doing a brilliant job of being true to Elmore Leonard’s original character, Raylan Givens. We couldn’t be more proud of the work everyone has done.”

JUSTIFIED is based on the popular Elmore Leonard character “Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens” from his short story FIRE IN THE HOLE and some of his other novels.

According to the network, JUSTIFIED has an average of 3.9 million viewers tuning in every Wednesday at 10pm this season, with 2 million in the 18-49 demo. With the additional runs each week, they estimate a total of 7.2 million fans.

JUSTIFIED’s second season finale airs May 4th.

ARCHER’s ratings have rose 22% from its first season.

Word coming out of FX’s upfronts is that ARCHER will receive a 16-episode third season order, with three airing this fall and 13 airing in 2012.

The news of these pick ups, incidentally, come just days after FX announced that their freshman drama, LIGHTS OUT, will not receive a sophomore season.
