It's Official: Longmire Will Be Back for Season 3

By Kaitlin Thomas

Nov 25, 2013


In August we told you that Longmire had been renewed for a third season after John Coveny, an executive producer on the series, tweeted the news. But now it's official, because A&E just sent out a press release announcing a 10-episode order for a third season of the Wyoming-set drama. Unfortunately, there's still no indication of when the show will return, though summer 2014 seems like a safe bet.

Longmire is based on a series of mystery novels and stars Australian actor Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, a Wyoming sheriff who does things his way—the old-fashioned way. Katee Sackhoff (hi, Starbuck!) co-stars as Deputy Victoria "Vic" Moretti, and Lou Diamond PhillipsCassidy FreemanBailey Chase, and Adam Bartley round out the cast. The show averaged 3.7 million viewers in Season 2, and continues to be the network's top original drama in overall viewership.


It took three months to officially announce the renewal. What do you think A&E has been doing since the news first broke on Twitter in August? What do you hope to see in Longmire Season 3?

    I'm glad that they are bringing it back but A&E; is still pissing me off! It's a very good show as well as their best drama and these idiots at A&E; are only giving it 10 episodes! I hope they don't leave the series in limbo. And if it does get cancelled for season 4 then I hope somebody else smarter picks it up.

    10 episodes is a joke, and a bad one at that. This is a very popular show, and has a lot of followers. It merits more attention, so why are we getting short shrift?

    Whatever happened to a 26 week season? Why only 10 episodes?

    I can't believe it's taken so long. I really like this show. They have great writers and stories, and I like the actors. I was beginning to wonder if I should remove it from the series manager on the DVR. Great!
