‘Justified’ Season 5 Trailer Reveals First Footage: “Now Can We Get Down to Business?”
Much as we’ve enjoyed the crow-centric promos of ‘Justified‘ season 5, it’s about time we got down to business! FX’s gunslinger drama will return for its fifth year on January 7, and the first Boyd-centric promo proves that prison won’t hold back any of the Harlan gangsters for very long.
Serving up our first actual footage of the season, the new ‘Justified’ season 5 trailer doesn’t quite reach the heights of the longer spot that has circulated on TV to date but promises a few tantalizing teasers for Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) on the warpath following the incarceration of his bride-to-be Ava last season. Not only do deals with Detroit go south, forcing Boyd and Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) to journey into the dark heart of the mob, but Ava looks to have a few threats of her own to fight behind bars.
So far, we know of ‘Justified’ season 5 that 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. Showrunner Graham Yost also previously expressed a desire to craft a new means of driving the character action besides the big bad and mystery approaches already used in recent seasons.
Take a first look at ‘Justified’ season 5 in the brief trailer above, and tell us which return you’re most excited for in the comments!
