The team behind Justified will reunite with star Timothy Olyphant for a miniseries spin-off of the FX crime drama, which ended back in 2015.
According to a release, Justified: City Primeval will cast Olyphant"s gunslinger character Marshal Raylan Givens in a story reimagining the Elmore Leonard novel City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit. Justified creator Graham Yost will serve as executive producer, with Justified writers and executive producers Michael Dinner and Dave Andron also serving as both co-writers and co-showrunners. Dinner will direct.
In this Justified revival, Raylan Givens has left Kentucky behind eight years ago in favor of Miami, where he is «a walk anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl.» However, «a chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who"s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit"s finest once and aims to do so again.»
