FX has renewed its second-year drama "Justified" for a third season. This news comes just hours before tonight's FX upfront party in New York, where the cast is scheduled to appear. They will no doubt be in a jovial mood over the good news.

The show has been a solid performer for the network, currently faring better in its second season than its first. After seven episodes this year, Justified has averaged an audience of 4 million "Live + 7" viewers for its Wednesday night episodes - up 16% from Season 1.

Justified is a neo-Western crime drama starring Timothy Olyphant as a tough but soft-spoken cop who uses his own brand of justice to enforce the law. The series airs Wednesdays at 10:00pm on FX.
