Those with eyes on 'American Horror Story: Coven' this year have no doubt seen one or two 'Justified' season 5 teasers (even 'The Americans' season 2, natch), but at long last FX has pulled out the big guns. The first 'Justified' season 5 teaser has landed online, and it looks like we'll all be eating crow this year.
There's no new footage to speak of unfortunately, though like the other spots we've seen from FX, crow imagery pervades the 'Justified' season 5 campaign for one very good reason. After sitting out the entirety of season 4, Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) will return this season, introducing the entirety of the Crowe clan as our major big bads!
Michael Rapaport has been revealed to portray the Florida-based Crowe clan patriarch Dale Jr., while 'Friday Night Lights' vet Alicia Witt will play a paralegal and public face of the Crowe crime family. Elsewhere, 'X-Men: First Class' star Edi Gathegi will take the role of Haitian criminal and Crowe employee Jean Baptiste, a former member of the Haitian secret police.
Elsewhere, we know of ‘Justified’ season 5 that the action will pick up with Boyd also desperate to get Ava out of prison, putting revenge on Lee Paxton (‘LOST‘’s Sam Anderson), Sheriff Mooney and Johnny Crowder (David Meunier) on the back burner. Raylan will have both his potential promotion and the long-awaited birth of his daughter to worry about, while showrunner Graham Yost previously expressed a desire to craft a new means of driving the character action beside the big bad and mystery approaches already used in recent seasons.
Take a look at the first 'Justified' season 5 teaser above, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the January 7 premiere!
