Season Premiere Dates Announced for ‘The Glades’ and ‘Longmire’

It is going to be an extra good Memorial Day this year for fans of the A&E drams The Glades and Longmire. Both shows will air their season premieres back-to-back on the holiday.

Last season, the duo of ‘The Glades’ and ‘Longmire’ made the cable network A&E the #1 cable network in total viewers on Sunday nights from 9 to 11 PM. In fact, ‘Longmire’ became A&E’s #1 original drama of all time in total viewers in its first season, averaging 4 million total viewers. And, the most recent season of ‘The Glades’ was the series’ strongest ever, averaging 4.1 million total viewers.

This coming fourth season of ‘The Glades’ will be packed with even more mystery, intrigue and fun from Florida’s favorite homicide investigator: Detective Jim Longworth (series lead Matt Passmore). From haunted plantations to rum-soaked shot girls and even a zombie apocalypse, Longworth is once again solving murders that can only happen in the Sunshine State. The new season also promises more drama on the personal front for Longworth, Carlos (series regular Carlos Gomez), Manus (series regular Michelle Hurd) and Daniel (series regular Jordan Wall) as friends and relatives from near and far arrive on the scene. But the big question remains to be answered as Longworth waits for Callie (series regular Kiele Sanchez) to accept his marriage proposal or not.

‘Longmire’, which is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson, will return for its second season with more murder, secrets and betrayals from Absaroka County, Wyoming. This new season will find reluctant hero Sheriff Walt Longmire (series lead Robert Taylor) back in the saddle after coming to terms with the devastating loss of his wife. But storm clouds are brewing as Walt’s reign as Sheriff hangs in the balance as he fights for re-election against rival, his own deputy, Branch Connally (series regular Bailey Chase). Walt’s right hand deputy, Vic Moretti (series regular Katee Sackhoff) is visited by the ghost of a past she’d rather forget. Walt’s daughter Cady (series regular Cassidy Freeman) searches for answers about her mother’s murder, while Walt’s possible connection to the death of his wife’s killer threatens to sweep his loyal friend Henry Standing Bear (series regular Lou Diamond Phillips) into the mix.

Fans of both dramas should mark their calendars for the season premieres of ‘The Glades’ and ‘Longmire’ on Monday, May 27 at 9/8c and 10/9c respectively.
