FX has released the first photos from the Season 5 premiere of “Justified,” which takes Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens back to his former home in Florida.
The premiere is titled “A Murder of Crowes” and introduces Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) to his primary nemesis this season: the Crowe family, headed by Darryl Crowe Jr. (Michael Rapaport) and his sister Wendy (Alicia Witt). Darryl had his hands in a number of criminal enterprises, while Wendy, who works as a paralegal, puts a legitimate sheen on the family’s dealings.
Darryl and Wendy are cousins of the hapless Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman), and upon hearing that Dewey has come into some money, they set their sights on Harlan.
Raylan also encounters Crowe adviser Jean Baptiste (Edi Gathegi, “House”) on his trip to the Everglades. Baptiste is a gator farmer “with an intimate knowledge of body disposal,” per FX’s description, and also acts as a voice of reason for the Crowes.
The Season 5 premiere also features “Anchorman 2” star David Koechner as a fellow U.S. marshal.
FX has also released a new teaser for the show, featuring Dewey reveling in his windfall — until Raylan shows up. Take a look:
