That FX revival of “Justified,” called “Justified: City Primeval,” is beginning production this week. It will be a limited series — which means it will be a miniseries that could, possibly, if it does well, return — and it’s inspired by Elmore Leonard’s novel “City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit.”

Timothy Olyphant returns as Marshal Raylan Givens, and the show will pick up with him eight years after he relocated from Kentucky to Miami. He’s the father of 14-year-old Willa, who will be played by Olyphant’s daughter, Vivian Olyphant. Raylan winds up going to Detroit in pursuit of a psychopath, played by Boyd Holbrook of “Narcos.”
