Come on in and sit a spell! We best catch up a bit before the new season is at our door…
Well, while you were gone, Justified kept things rolling during the hiatus. The big news first: the ever-talented Margo Martindale, who played Mags Bennett in Season 2, took home a chunk of gold in the form of an Emmy after winning Best Supporting Actress. Our sincerest congratulations go out to Ms. Martindale!
And the awards keep a-coming… the Justified mantle now also includes the CableFax Program Award for “Best Show or Series – Drama”, a Television Critics Award and the #9 spot in New York Magazine’s Top 10 Television Shows of 2011. Oh, and I should mention: Time Magazine called Justified the #4 show of 2011, graciously including the Season 2 finale in this year’s Top 10 TV episodes. Yes, the year 2011 has been a plentiful one! And we owe a great portion of the show’s success to you—the Justified fans!

So, this year more than any other, we welcome you back! We usher your return to the world of Harlan with eager, knowing smiles because this season, we’ve got a lot to grin about. In Season 2, Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens squared off against criminal matriarch Mags Bennett . The season finale brought about the end of the Bennett family’s hold over Harlan County and the return of Raylan’s old nemesis/friend Boyd Crowder to the criminal life. Now with control of the Harlan underworld up for grabs, it just may surprise you to see who makes a play for power.
This season the show will raise the stakes and the Justified blog looks to follow suit! Check back throughout the season as we chronicle the making of Justified’s third season with cast interviews, scene breakdowns, behind-the-scenes footage and a whole slew of good watchin’.
And this year, we would like you to be a part of the blogging! Send your questions, comments and thoughts about all things Justified to JustablogOnFX@gmail.com and you might just see your response pop up on the blog.
