“It picks up with Givens eight years after he left Kentucky behind,” reads the series synopsis. “He now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl. 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. 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. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, 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.”

Justified: City Primeval will be co-written and executive produced by Dave Andron, Michael Dinner, Taylor Elmore, and Chris Provenzano, with Andron and Dinner serving as showrunners. In addition to starring, Olyphant will also be executive producing along with Justified creator Graham Yost, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, and Peter Leonard.
