FX Sets ‘Justified’ Return Date, Slots Animated Comedies for Mondays

'Chozen,' a new half-hour originally tapped for FXX, will now air on the mothership network

January will be a busy month for FX, which announced plans Tuesday for the premieres of returnees “Archer” and “Justified” and is shifting the home of new animated comedy “Chozen.”

The network has ordered 13 episodes of each series.

Archer,” the highest-rated comedy series on the network, is moving to Mondays at 10 p.m. beginning Jan. 13, after playing on Thursdays in its most recent season. It will lead into the series premiere of another animated show, “Chozen,” which had originally been scheduled to air on new sister network FXX.

FX feels the Monday night block gives the net its best chance to strengthen its animated comedy brand. The new show’s title character is a gay white rapper fresh out of prison and looking for redemption.

As for “Justified,” it will kick off its fifth season on Jan. 7, and will again air on Tuesdays. This season, Deputy U.S. Marshal Givens (Timothy Olyphant) confronts the Crowes, a lawless family from Florida intent on settling in Harlan.

At FXX, the new “Ali G: Rezurection” will be paired with the second season of “Legit,” which aired on FX in its first season. No premiere dates were announced.

Season 2 of drama “The Americans” will debut in February on FX, with a date to be announced later.
