Cable TV Scorecard: Renewals, Cancellations and Premiere Dates
Timothy Olyphant reprises Raylan Givens in the sequel series Justified: City Primeval. Premiering Tuesday, July 18 with its first two episodes, the sequel series picks up 15 years after Raylan left Kentucky. He now lives in Miami, “a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 15-year-old girl,” according to the official logline. “His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind.
“A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit,” the logline reveals. “There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell (Boyd Holbrook), 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. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder (Aunjanue Ellis), has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well. These three characters set out on a collision course in classic Elmore Leonard fashion, to see who makes it out of the City Primeval alive.” Watch a teaser above.
Newly announced premieres also include What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 (Thursday, July 13 on FX), Reservation Dogs Season 3 (Wednesday, Aug. 2 on Hulu) and the just-announced final season of Archer (Wednesday, Aug. 30 on FXX).
