Timothy Olyphant is back as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in Justified: City Primeval on FX, joined by an all-new cast. This adventure takes Raylan and his daughter, Willa, now 15, on an unexpected road trip far from Miami and the Kentucky hollers we came to know so well in the original Justified series.

Still, when he accepts a professional invitation to “hang around and see how we do things in Detroit,” the last thing he expects is to find himself chasing down an unhinged violent criminal with an uncanny knack for evading local law enforcement.

The two-episode premiere of this highly anticipated reboot landed July 18 and hooked fans (us included) quick. So, when does the next episode of this limited series come out, and how many episodes are there? We’ve got you covered in the Justified: City Primeval episode guide below.

There are eight episodes in FX's limited series Justified: City Primeval. That's a bit shy of 13 episodes per season in the original series. But, hey, we've been waiting eight years for this reboot, so we'll take it. Or, as one fan commented on Instagram, "I AM SO EXCITED! I need more Timothy Olyphant in my life!! OMG OMG OMG 😍."

When to watch each episode of Justified: City Primeval

The first five episodes are out now on Hulu. The remaining three episodes air on FX on Tuesdays, 10 p.m. ET/PT, and are available to stream starting the next day (Wednesdays) on Hulu.
