Critic Reviews for Justified Season 6

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11)

Justified called it quits and went out with a finale that was as unpredictable and poetic and entertaining and memorable as the series itself. What a triumph.

Elmore Leonard loved this series based on his novella "Fire in the Hole," and Justified does him proud to the end.

With "Fate," as usual, the best stuff with Justified is often the little stuff: a stray word of dialogue, an Olyphant glance from under the shadow of that Stetson Marshall hat, Goggins' hair. Oh yes, the hair.

Justified's love of the wacky short-story character ... has made it funnier and less self-serious than other superficially similar antihero shows, but it has also made it dunderheaded.

Top Critic

Somehow, over six seasons, the show's producers have retained the style and attitude of their source material to craft a smart, engaging modern day Western that feels classic as a John Wayne shoot 'em up and modern as the next season of True Detective.

For six seasons, Justified has consistently been one of the best shows on television.

A pitch-perfect ending to one of TV's best, often-overlooked dramas.

Raylan vs. Boyd begins, as the electric first hour of Justified's final season proves that the only thing deadlier than the present is getting lost in the past.

Jan 20, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The greatest compliment I can pay Justified is to say that, despite the fact that it arrived at the height of the anti-hero boom, it never felt like a copycat. The drama created a vibrant, funny, tragic world of its own.

Jan 20, 2015 | Full Review…

There must be an alternate universe where Justified is fully recognized for what it is: one of the greatest shows in television history.

Jan 20, 2015 | Full Review…

The final season is primed to explore what the end means for Raylan, Boyd, and Ava, and whether or not the good days are truly gone forever.

Jan 22, 2015 | Full Review…

One of the great things about this noir-western hybrid is its interest in updating more than just the superficial tropes of those genres.

Audience Reviews for Justified: Season 6

  • Aug 16, 2015
    The final season of Justified underscores its reputation of an original crime drama, departing from the norms and taking chances. It takes a while for it to really hit its stride, but ends on a surprisingly strong note. This season is filled with strong character actors, including the amazing Sam Elliott, and takes the characters we've become accustomed to in some interesting directions, namely Boyd Crowder. It's a show that needed to end, and yet managed to do so on a note that makes it among the shows greatest seasons.

    Almost perfect, the finale is one of the best of all time(maybe Top 10). Just watch it already!

    Absolutely the best season finale of any show I have watched! All six seasons were filled with memorable characters and a storyline that just got better with each season.

    Well it is in the can and over with and it ended on a very good note, barring one annoyance. This season focused on Boyd and Raylan’s struggle, but involved Sam Elliott playing Avery Markham and Mary Steenburgen playing Katherine Hale as new bad guys in a tug of war between multiple groups. We also had a lot of Wynn Duffy which I personally enjoyed. The season was perhaps the best one to date. The acting still really good, and the fact that almost all the side characters popped up in this (or were put down as the case may be). It was a really good send off for the series. The only issue I had was the last 20 minutes of the season finale. I won’t say what happened other than it moves forward a few years to give sort of an epilogue, but I think that is where it did a disservice to the series. Not everything needs to be wrapped up completely and sometimes its best to leave things where they end, takes away from the climatic end. Pros: Acting, story and pace were all great. Cons: Sometimes its best to not have an epilogue, just leave it where it stands after the final climax. Made me want to watch Deadwood, maybe I will do that.

  • Jan 06, 2016
    brilliant in every way, one of the best tv series of the 2010s
  • Sep 27, 2015
    It wraps up the series in top form, delivering one of the most tense and engaging seasons which ends in a way that honors the writer of the original short story.

    This is an AWESOME!!! Ending, 6 years, 6 season... the hat kindda grow on you :p The shoot out scene was long waited since the start but with the wrong guy and the finale scene is just great!!! The whole season brought an ending to every story and we got off with a happy note... I really liked this show... it is a long binge 6x13 but it is a good time so (y) I'll give it a 9.5/10.
