‘Longmire’ Season 3 Announced

Longmire Season 2 Episode 8 The Great Spirit 9

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).

    • lspd

      actually it says and at end of the credits that it was filmed in new mexico, or I thought it did anyways, could be wrong.

  • laura

    I think that longmier is he best show that I have watched in years. I will definitely
    watch every show.

  • Janet

    Both my husband and I were thrilled to read that Longmire is going to have a 3rd season. Monday nights are reserved for our house to watch Longmire. If the phone rings I will either ignore the call or answer and tell them I will call them during commercial.
    We love watching this series. Almost as good as NCIS!!!!! 🙂

    It’s about time this show was recognized as being different and well written. Thank you A&E for signing it up for another season, but I would like it if they signed for about another 5 – 10 years.

    I absolutely love Longmire and Walt is just too sexy and it is one of the best shows on TV besides The Walking Dead! Can’t wait for Season 3!!!

  • dorothy

    Longmire is a breath of fresh air! The location & surrounding culture (Indian reservation(s) show a quiet, yet impacting, perspective from Wyoming area. We ENJOY Sheriff Longmire’s quiet, yet strong, caring demeanor. So HAPPY show coming back for 3rd season. We promote it to our friends to watch. Dorothy & Jim

    I love this show.

  • Jane

    TERRIFIC cast, fantastic writing, gorgeous scenery. Everyone should be glued to Longmire each and every week like I am!

  • foramerica1

    I only really watch two shows on TV an Longmire is first on the list.

  • edie1956

    99% of the time that my TV is on it is nothing more then a noise and I am not paying attention to what is going on….BUT….when Longmire is on I am glued to the set and if my phone rings I ignore it and if anyone dares to knock at my door I yell “come back when Longmire is over”. I just HOPE and PRAY that there will be seasons 4, 5, 6, etc etc

  • Jimmy

    My wife and I love this show! Good decision by a&e.

  • Anne

    very happy Longmire will continue. it’s different from other shows. love Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Philips!

  • judy from oklahoma

    really like the program but it does not do the books justice. needless to say i love the books and have read 5 of them so far (you have to read them in order to really know what is going on). can’t wait to see the new season

  • Donna

    Can’t wait love the character Walt and love Longmire!!! EXCITED FOR Season 3!!!!

  • Wili

    I love this show! Looking forward to the new season! Now, will you please bring back ‘The Glades?’

  • Bud

    I can’t wait for Season 3. This is one of the best of the new shows. Not sure whether my favorite is Longmire or Justified. I really like that Robert Taylor has lost the Ausie accent. I discovered Katie Sackhoff in Battlestar Galactica and really like her here.

  • Tony

    I am glad that A&E has finally came their senses. Longmire is a great show and the stories are true to life. Good luck with the 3rd season.
