Show Summary

Based on Walt Longmire Mystery series of novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire also is named after its central character, Walt Longmire, the local sheriff in rural Wyoming. As the series starts, Longmire has been widowed for a year and, still in pain, hides behind a brave face and dry wit. After his wife's death, he dragged himself into the office but his heart wasn't really in the job. He knows it's time to turn his life around and with the help of his daughter, Cady, and his deputy, Vic, he revives his interest in his job and decides to give his all to his re-election campaign. Victoria "Vic" Moretti is the newest addition to the sheriff's office. She was a Philadelphia homicide detective for five years before relocating to Wyoming. While adjusting to how to deal with the locals, Vic is out to prove she's not a rookie. She has a deep connection with Longmire along with her playful attitude and he allows her to be his most trusted deputy. Longmire's lifelong best friend and close confidant is Henry Standing Bear, the owner of the local bar. Henry is often Walt's go-between with the reservation. Unlike Longmire, Henry embraces progress and the trappings of the modern world while holding a close connection with his past. Another one of Longmire's deputies is ambitious go-getter Branch Connally. He's motivated more by political aspirations than his work as a deputy. He thinks Longmire's stuck in the past and wants the department to have the technology that most other law enforcement agencies use. It's his umbrage towards Walt's outdated methods that pushes him to run for sheriff. Longmire's only child is daughter, Cady Longmire, an attorney who dreams of practicing law in a big city. With the death of her mother, Cady has stayed to help Walt get his life back together. She isn't afraid to tell her father like it is, and it's this straight talk and sense of humor that makes their connection strong. Longmire's third deputy is The Ferg who has a heart of gold. He's loyal and well meaning and always eager to please. The Ferg can hunt and fix most anything but he's not much of an investigator. Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny wrote the pilot and serve as executive producers along with Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin. The series stars Australian actor Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, along with Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and newcomer Adam Bartley.

The first three seasons aired on A&E. When it was cancelled by A&E, the series was shopped around until Netflix agreed to air a 10-episode fourth season.

  • Longmire and why it is excellent!

    Longmire is a modern-day western. It mixes in good old fashioned western cowboy and American ethics. The setting is superb and the acting is to notch. The characters are rich and the series follows the books with reasonable accuracy. In a small town there are very few secrets.
  • Like the show but there is too much altruism in it

    Consider Auden's observation: "We are here on earth to do good for others. What the others are here for, I don't (THE WEEK, Nov. 16, 2002, p. 19)

  • Tonto

    It is not something the writers are doing to be racist. It is actually one of the few things that carries over from the book series. Henry's lack of contractions is just how Craig Johnson wrote the character. To me, it adds an interesting dimension to the character just like Walt's lack of words and Vic's foul mouth. He adds interesting linguistic elements to each character that make them interesting and change speech patterns while reading so everyone doesn't sound the same. If you haven't read the books the show is based I highly recommend them. The story lines are quite different but you'll see more of Walt's sense of humor and how much Johnson goes out of his way to portray both wyomingers and natives. There is just as much about their culture and their beliefs as well as his friendship with Henry as there is about solving crimes. I'm glad they're bringing the show back and I hope with Netflix behind them they can show even more of some of the great aspects of the series.moreless
  • Jumped the Shark with Season 3

    Love the books and enjoyed seasons 1 and most of 2, but season 3 has become a long soap opera. Walt's department is totally dysfunctional and Branch's descent into madness just silly. The only thing that saves it at all is the superb acting.
  • Why does Henry talk like Tonto?

    1) Does this show think that Henry doesn't ever use normal American contractions? He can only speak in full words, eg "I do not think that is

    "He did not go

    Weird. The real Native American actors don't speak like that.

    2) Why do all the actors playing down and out characters like drunks, homeless guys, etc. all have unnaturally brilliant white and perfect teeth? Why doesn't Makeup darken the teeth for the shot. They all look like they are in a commercial. Get real!

    The series is pretty good. Nice change: a modern American town out West.moreless
