A&E has reportedly decided to go with a third season of the break out hit Longmire, according to the show’s executive producer John Coveny.
Coveny, as reported by Deadline, tweeted the good news of Longmire’s renewal on Twitter. “Thanks to the 5 million plus weekly fans (live+7). Young and older skewing alike! The call just came: SEASON 3 for #Longmire is a GO!”
Although A&E and Warner BrosTV have yet to officially announce the pick-up, recent rating highs suggest that a third season is in the cards for the show. Longmire’s season 2 finale managed to pull in 4.4 million total viewers. Season 2 averaged 3.7 million viewers between the 18-49 demographic, as well as 25-54. Official word on the show’s renewal should be on the way.
‘Longmire’ follows the titular character, Sheriff Walt Longmire, who returns to patrol Absaroka County in Wyoming after the passing of his wife. The show is an adaptation of Craig Johnson’s book of the same name. The A&E drama stars Robert Taylor (The Matrix) as the sheriff, Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), Bailey Chase (Saving Grace), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) and Adam Bartley (Be Strong).
