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 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!

    it's a GREAT show, almost as good as walking dead. however in my experience I have found that once a network starts messing with a shows scheduling the show then gets cancelled soon afterward.
    worst part is they usually replaced it with some stupid reality show.

    10 episodes? That's it? If this show is such a hit why the short seasons? Stop teasing me and give us a 26 episode season. I"M IN LONGMIRE WITHDRAWL. STOP BEING SO CRUEL.
