‘Justified’ Series Finale Sparks Sad Farewell Messages on Social Media

Fans of the FX drama starring Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins say goodbye to the show after six seasons

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Tuesday’s finale of “Justified”)

It’s never easy to say goodbye, even to fictional characters.

After six seasons airing on FX, the “Justified” series finale on Tuesday was bitter sweet for many fans.

While two characters were literally killed off in the last ever episode, the drama bowed out gracefully overall with Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) choosing to arrest nemesis Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) rather than shooting him.

And the conclusion seemed to please even the most avid viewer. “Anyone that hasn’t watched Justified has missed out on one of the best shows of the past decade,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“Thank you @JustifiedFX. Amazing all the way through. Modern western giant. Appointment TV in this age? Tough to do. You will be missed,” another tweeted.

And while he couldn’t reveal how things went down in the finale, actor Patton Oswalt, who played Constable Bob Sweeney, warned: “They do go hard. And they do…go…permanent.”

Based on Elmore Leonard‘s short story “Fire in the Hole,” the FX series has been nominated for eight Emmy awards since it premiered in March 2010.
