Last season on "Justified," the Givens vs. Bennetts feud came to a bloody end, with the death of Doyle Bennett (Joseph Lyle Taylor) and the subsequent suicide of his mother, Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale). Only Dickie Bennett (Jeremy Davies) survived to be carted away by the authorities after he narrowly escaping the wrath of Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) for shooting his new love, Ava (Joelle Carter).
This January, "Justified" returns to FX with Timothy Olyphant once again reprising his role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens alongside the other colorful denizens of Harlan County. And in the first teaser trailer for the new season, we see Raylan and Boyd get into a serious fight while also getting a first look at the two new villains,
Limehouse (Mykelti Williamson) and the Detroit Mobster known as Quarles (Neal McDonough); who is trying to fill the gap left behind in the criminal underworld by Mags' death.
Even Dickie Bennett briefly shows up in this trailer, as we see what's become of him…
Not seen in the trailer is Carla Gugino's Karen Goodall, who is an Assistant Director U.S. Marhsal who may have a complicated history with Raylan. Jim Beaver ("Supernatural") will also be reprising his role as Shelby, who previously appeared during the second season as the manager of a mine that employed Boyd.
"Justified" will debut its third season on Tuesday, January 17, 2012; only on FX!
