FX Sets ‘Justified,’ ‘Anger Management,’ ‘Archer’ Returns, New Premiere ‘Legit’
Now that Thanksgiving has fallen by the wayside, and soon Christmas itself will roast upon an open fire, we can finally start to put 2012 behind us. And what better way to do that, than to look forward to FX’s 2013 slate of ‘Justified‘ season 4, ‘Anger Management‘ season 2, ‘Archer‘ season 4 and another new series to fall in love with? The network has officially unveiled its early 2013 schedule, so what will you be watching when the calendar starts anew?
While we already knew from an earlier promo that ‘Justified’ season 4 would make its debut on Tuesday, January 8, the latest announcement from FX offered up some juicy details of its return:
This January, Raylan will start to pick at the thread of a cold case over 30 years in the making, unraveling a riddle that echoes all the way back to his boyhood and his criminal father’s bad dealings. Meanwhile, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) finds his grip on Harlan loosening due to a Pentecostal preacher with a penchant for theatrics and a knack for manipulation to rival his own.
Elsewhere, FX has scheduled a second cycle of Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management’ to debut on Thursday, January 17 with two all-new episodes at 9:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. After the premiere week, FX will air repeat episodes in the earlier slot, and new episodes in the latter. Their report didn’t specify how many episodes the second season will include, considering the 90-episode commitment we now the series to have.
‘Archer’ too will return for a fourth season on January 17 as well, followed by the premiere of ‘Legit,’ a comedy about Australian comic Jim Jeffries living in Los Angeles. The comedy also features actor DJ Qualls (‘Supernatural‘) and Dan Bakkedahl. Finally, a new cycle of ‘Totally Biased W. Kamau Bell’ will begin immediately after on the same day.
