It's Official: Longmire Will Be Back for Season 3
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 Phillips, Cassidy Freeman, Bailey 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?
