‘Justified’ Season 5 Spoilers: Get Ready to Meet “A Murder of Crowes!”
It’s been a good long while since we’ve had any fresh intel on ‘Justified‘ season 5, with shooting soon to get underway for a presumed January 2014 release date. Fans of the FX gunslinger drama may have been disheartened that the central Drew Thompson story of season 4 left little time for peripheral favorites like Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman), but guess whose family will get a big spotlight in season 5?
Via TVLine, We’ve learned that season 5 premiere will bear the wonderfully punny title of “A Murder of Crowes,” featuring you guessed it, Dewey Crowe’s kin! Though no casting announcements have yet been made, nor the duration of the characters’ role within season 5, we’ll meet the Florida-based Crowes as they operate a gator farm to cover up their murderous, drug trafficking nature. Among the Crowes, we’ll meet the “sexy, charismatic and ruthless” fortyish patriarch Dale, public-facing sister Wendy, and romantic sociopath younger brother Danny. Kind of makes Dewey sound like the runt, no?
Elsewhere, we know of ‘Justified’ season 5 that the action will pick up with Boyd desperate to get Ava out of prison, putting revenge on Lee Paxon (‘LOST‘s’ Sam Anderson), Sheriff Mooney and Johnny Crowder (David Meunier) on the back burner. Raylan will have both his potential promotion and the long-awaited birth of his daughter to worry about, while showrunner Graham Yost previously expressed a desire to craft a new means of driving the character action beside the big bad and mystery approaches already employed.
We’re excited to see who ‘Justified’ casts among “A Murder of Crowes,” but what say you? What do you hope to see in store for ‘Justified’ season 5 next year?
