Justified season 6 premieres tonight

Justified is finally back tonight with the season opener “Fate’s Right Hand,” which airs at 10 pm on FX.

TV Fanatic has a new interview with Garret, mostly about the show, Ty Walker, and some of the other new characters we’ll be seeing this season. Hit the link to read the full article.

TV Fanatic: Having seen the first two episodes of this final season, I’m a little worried about everybody. This guy seems like he could be a loose cannon.

garret dillahunt,ty walker,justifiedGarret Dillahunt: Yeah, he is. You know, as it should in the last season, he should be a worthy adversary for Raylan and for everybody else.

TVF: Tell me first of all about the beard, because you’ve got a nice scruffy beard. Is that your beard, did you grow it for the role?

GD: It is mine. I would hate to wear a fake beard. That would be the most uncomfortable thing.
I have a series of my own called Hand of God for Amazon. We shot the pilot for that last year and we go back into production on season one next month. I have a beard in that and when I was trying to fill the time between the shooting of the pilot and the resumption of the series, Justified being the thing I found to do, I wanted to do as many as I could. I was afraid the closer it got to start time for Hand of God, the less time I’d have to grow my beard back for it. So I just kept the beard. In fact, just let it keep growing, so I had a bigger one for “Justified.” That’s all the logic behind that. — TV Fanatic

New interview & Justified teaser

There is a new interview with Garret at FresnoBee.com. Hit the link to read it.

Here is what he says about Justified:

Dillahunt plays a mysterious stranger in town who’s buying up parcels of land. While he’s reluctant to reveal any of the plot, Dillahunt admits that he’s “a certain part of an antagonist force.”

He’s an old pal of the show’s star, Timothy Olyphant. “Tim and I worked together in ‘Deadwood’ 10 years ago. We’d run into each other and he’s been saying, ‘I keep trying to get you on the show,’ but we shot at exactly the same times and it never worked out. But when my show (“Raising Hope”) ended I sent him a text, ‘Hey, I’m available.’ He said, ‘Hang on.'”

Dillahunt thinks their symbiotic experience working on “Deadwood” spoiled them. “We try to bend other projects to that sort of environment which is very creative and very unique,” he says. “He’s done that on ‘Justified’ with the help of an incredible group of writers. They don’t settle for good enough.”

And FX has released a new teaser for season 6 (the region-free version is from Spoiler TV), which premieres on January 20. That’s next Tuesday (10 pm, FX).

FX has announced the premiere dates for its mid-season shows. Justified will be back on January 20. That’s two full months to catch up with the first five seasons, and hopefully we’ll get a few more teasers like the one below.

The explosive 6th and final season of Justified will air Tuesdays at 10 PM e/p, beginning January 20. Based on Elmore Leonard’s novella “Fire in the Hole,” Justified was developed by Graham Yost and stars Timothy Olyphant as Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens, a lawman who finds himself drawn back to his home state of Kentucky. In Justified’s final season, the long brimming conflict between Raylan and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) will finally come to a head. The series co-stars Walton Goggins as ‘Boyd Crowder;’ Nick Searcy as ‘Chief Deputy Art Mullen;’ Jacob Pitts as ‘Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;’ Erica Tazel as ‘Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;’ Joelle Carter as ‘Ava Crowder;’ and Jere Burns as ‘Wynn Duffy.’ Yost wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Executive Producers on the series include Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman, Michael Dinner, Fred Golan, Dave Andron, Don Kurt, Taylor Elmore, Timothy Olyphant, and the late Elmore Leonard. Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.
