Shoot-in and fist figh-in as Justified returns tonight

HERE will be more shootin' and fist-fightin' when the new season of Justified premieres on Foxtel.

The acclaimed US drama series follows strong-willed lawman Raylan Givens, a Deputy US Marshal who returns to his native Harlan County, Kentucky to dish out some tough justice to the area's crims and drug dealers.

Raylan is not your typical "good guy", often using questionable tactics to get his man, or woman.

"The facts would certainly call into question how much of a 'good guy' Raylan is," Justified's executive producer Graham Yost told TVLine.com.

"He's done a lot of things that, in the real-life Marshal service, would have gotten him kicked out a long time ago.

When it comes right down to it, there can be all this talk about Raylan being an outlaw and going his own way, but ultimately he's a lawman."

The series is based on Elmore Leonard's novella Fire in the Hole.

Leonard is best known for the feature film success of his novel Get Shorty and Jackie Brown, Quentin Tarantino's big-screen adaptation of his novel Rum Punch.
