"Justified" is an American television series that aired on FX from 2010 to 2015. The series is based on a character created by Elmore Leonard, a prolific American writer known for his crime novels and screenplays. The show follows the story of Raylan Givens, a U.S. Marshal with a no-nonsense approach to law enforcement who is reassigned to his hometown of Harlan, Kentucky.

The show is set in the rural areas of eastern Kentucky, and much of the action takes place in and around the fictional town of Harlan. Raylan Givens, played by Timothy Olyphant, is a lawman who often finds himself at odds with his old acquaintances and family members who are involved in the criminal underworld. The show also features a variety of colorful characters, including drug dealers, hitmen, and members of the local criminal organizations.

Throughout the series, Raylan is tasked with bringing down criminals and maintaining order in Harlan, often with the help of his fellow marshals and a rotating cast of local law enforcement officials. The show is known for its strong writing, complex characters, and gritty, suspenseful tone.

The show was praised by critics and viewers alike, and was nominated for multiple Emmy awards during its six-season run. It has also been credited with helping to popularize the "neo-Western" genre, which blends traditional Western tropes with contemporary settings and themes.
