FX’s Justified: City Primeval | First Look: Raylan Givens Brings The Wild West to Motor City

FX has released a first-look video for “Justified: City Primeval” which will premiere with two episodes on FX on July 18, 2023, and arrive the next day on Hulu in the United States and begin streaming on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on July 19, 2023. All eight episodes of the series will also arrive on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

Timothy Olyphant leads the cast and crew through a sneak peek of what’s in store for Raylan Givens in a First Look at the new series in the video below:

Having left the hollers of Kentucky 15 years ago, Raylan Givens 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. 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. 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.

Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard), Boyd Holbrook (The Premise), Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby), Vondie Curtis Hall (Harriet), Marin Ireland (Y: The Last Man), Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline), Victor Williams (The Good Lord Bird), Vivian Olyphant and Ravi Patel (The ValetMeet the Patels) also star.

Olyphant will exec producing alongside showrunners and writers Dave Andron and Michael Dinner and original creator Graham Yost.  Dinner will direct the series.

Executive produces also include Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly, Peter Leonard, Taylor Elmore, and Chris Provenzano, with Elmore and Provenzano also writing for the show. V.J. Boyd, Eisa Davis and Ingrid Escajeda are also writers.

The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.

The series will also stream on Disney+ internationally at a later date however a release date for other countries has not been announced yet.
