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.

Great show, Longmire, Breaking Bad and Justified give me hope that TV can still be good.

Hopefully they will get closer to the novels in season 2. Still I enjoy the show.

Although I do watch it, it's not high on my favs list. Phillips and Sackhoff were the main reason I started with this show. The most recent episode was my fav ep so far, because Sackoff's character amused me by teasing her boss about the hot lady flirting with Longmire, and Sackoff running through the forest scene was exciting to watch, then her panting for breath after was amusing too.

I'm delighted to hear this! A&E, I tip my hat to you for renewing the series. I was afraid that since I was enjoying the series, it would end up being canceled (the networks have made me jumpy).

Love this show! The casting for Longmire is just spot on!

Watching the series is like seeing Craig Johnson's vision of Longmire .

Oh and for once in a movie I can actually stand to watch and like Katie Sackoff!!

Has the show got better after the first 3 episodes?



I can't watch it anymore.



But I'm happy for people who like it that it got renewed.



Somebody please let me know if the show changes significantly, and maybe I'll try it out again.



I find the "native american" character and the daughter and the girl deputy and the guy running for sheriff all very phony and annoying.

Yeahhh, I'm still bitter that they cancelled Breakout Kings. I'm a grudge holder like that.

Enjoyable series, good to see early support from A&E to let us know its not going to just disappear like so many other series. Like to see a more positive spin on the Indian reservation and can't wait to get Sackhoffs characters back-story flushed out.

This show was WAAAYYY better than I thought it would be given the... ahem... initial TV.com suggestion as to whether to watch it or not. And I'm glad. It's not the greatest show on TV by any means, but there's something about the character, and the way Taylor plays Longmire that is so honest and true you can't help but loving him, and nitty gritty he is. I love that he's full of flaws but still kicks butt. Glad to see Lou Diamond Phillips at it again as well. Sackhoff is my least favourite of the three, but she's holding her own.

I couldn't agree more. I thought I was going to hate this show but accidentally saw the beginning and I just couldn't stop watching. I also think Robert Taylor is brilliant in this role and making Longmire such a likeable character.

I finally started watching it a few days ago, and got caught up to all four. It's pretty good. The acting range of the other cop who starred in Saving Grace is hardly being tested here, but it's cool to see him with a job.

Best new show on tv. i said it before, and will say it again.

i dont like cop shows (except dexter) or murder mysteries, or westerns (except deadwood) ... but this show is simply so well written and acted and well woven into the fabric of great storytelling, if you tune in, it is damn hard to even think of looking away.

I want to like it, I really do. But I just don't like the Sheriff. A common problem for me in shows with characters who are so super-duper-awesome at what they do that I just can't relate to 'em. Despite being depressed prior due to the loss of his wife Mr Longmire is one of those ber-persons.
