    Timothy Olyphant is set to return as Raylan Givens in ‘Justified: City Primeval’ miniseries

    Via hollywoodreporter.com:

    Confirming last year’s reports of a possible revival, FX announced Friday a new show titled Justified: City Primeval.

    The story is inspired by Elmore Leonard’s novel City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit.

    Here’s the storyline: “Having left the hollers of Kentucky eight years ago, Raylan Givens now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl. His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind. A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well. These three characters set out on a collision course in classic Elmore Leonard fashion, to see who makes it out of the City Primeval alive.”

    Via Deadline: Creatives behind The Simpsons shared new details about Season 33 on Saturday, revealing that it will feature a musical premiere, an expanded “Treehouse of Horror” episode and more.

    During a Comic-Con@Home panel teasing the new season, executive producer Matt Selman described premiere episode “The Star of the Backstage” as the “most musical episode we’ve ever done”—”like a Broadway musical of an episode with wall to wall music.”

    The season’s first episode will feature an assortment of original songs. Actress Kristen Bell (Frozen) will handle singing for Marge, the Simpsons matriarch played by Julie Kavner.

    A final tease came from Selman, who discussed a two-part episode titled “A Serious Flanders,” which will air in November. The two-parter is billed as “an epic love letter to the show Fargo and the world of streaming television.” Guest stars will include Timothy Olyphant (Fargo), Cristin Milioti (Made for Love) and Brian Cox (Succession).
