FX Networks CEO John Landgraf made it official at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Tuesday. The executive portrayed the decision as one made by the showrunner Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant. “We talked about it a year ago and they felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say would be served by six seasons instead of seven and I regretfully accepted their decision,” he said.
This still means fans get nearly two more seasons of the show, since season five just started this month.
FX also announced that Michael Cera has been cast along with actor John Hawkes (Deadwood) in the comedy pilot How And Why, while Zach Galifianakis will star in another comedy pilot he’ll co-write with Louis C.K. (who begins a fourth season of Louie in May).
