Emmy ward-winning Justified returns for its fourth season with U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant, My Name Is Earl) picking at the thread of a cold case over 30 years in the making and unravelling a riddle that echoes all the way back to his boyhood and his criminal father’s bad dealings. Meanwhile, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins, Django Unchained) finds his own criminal grip on Harlan County loosening due to a Pentecostal preacher with a penchant for theatrics and a knack for manipulation.
Also released (on August 19) is Bag of Bones, based on the award-winning bestselling novel by Stephen King, Two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day) stars as Mike Noonan, a novelist who suffers from writer’s block after the death of his wife, Jo (Annabeth Gish, TV’s “Pretty Little Liars”). A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s lakeside retreat hoping to find answers about his wife’s sudden death – but he is plagued by ever-escalating nightmares and mysterious ghostly visitations from Sara Tidwell (Anika Noni Rose, Dreamgirls), a blues singer whose spirit lingers in the house.
