Timothy Olyphant is dusting off his hat (oh, you know the one). The actor is set to reprise his role as Raylan Givens, that smoldering gunslinger, in a miniseries spinoff of FX’s crime drama Justified, which ended in 2015. Justified: City Primeval reunites Olyphant with producers of the original acclaimed series, including creator Graham Yost. The new limited series is set to be based off Elmore Leonard’s novel City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit, after the original series drew from Leonard’s novella Fire in the Hole and other stories featuring the character of Givens. City Primeval takes place after Givens’s work in Kentucky is finished, with the U.S. Marshal living in Miami, before he ends up in Detroit and involved with the case of someone known as the Oklahoma Wildman. Speaking of wild men, there’s no news yet on the rest of the cast, including whether to expect other Justified stars like Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder or Jere Burns as Wynn Duffy. In the meantime, don’t say we didn’t call it first.
