Even though Terriers got canceled after only one season, and now Light’s Out has suffered the same fate. Both shows were well done and original – so their fate was sealed early on. But just as it seems like good shows can’t survive in the wasteland of Reality TV, CBS Programming, and MTV – FX delivers us some great news: Raylan Givens will be justified for another 13 episodes. Fresh off the announcement they had won a Peabody, Justified was renewed for a 3rd season.
For those who have seen the show, it is probably no surprise that a 3rd season is impending, but in today’s television landscape, nothing original is ever guaranteed to last.
It’s moments like this where I realize that there are still some good decision makers left in the television world. And as much as I hate Terriers and Light’s Out not getting a chance to have 2nd seasons, I do give credit to FX, not only for trying something new and original, but also airing all of season 1 of both shows. On a network station, with the ratings it had, Terriers surely would not have seen all 13 episodes aired.
So thank you FX, thank you for bringing us more Harlan County Adventures!
Good news is also on the horizon for Archer fans, stay tuned!
