A&E Has Renewed Longmire, Y'all

Look out all you crooked prostitute killers, Amish-forsaking strippers, and Mexican drug cartels operating way too far north, Sheriff Walt Longmire has another season to catch you. A & E has renewed Longmire, its perfectly decent Western, for a second season, says Deadline Hollywood. The series has averaged almost 4 million viewers per episode in its young life, topping out at 4.15 million for its debut.

Longmire is based on the mystery novels by author Craig Johnson and stars Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, a grizzled sheriff recovering from the death of his wife and solving crimes the old-fashioned way in Wyoming. Katee Sackhoff and Lou Diamond Phillips also star.

Longmire currently airs on Sunday nights on A & E.
