    I absolutely enjoy this show so much – the protagonist is a Gary Cooper kind of man and as easy going as he might appear, he gets his man or woman. A total modern day Western complete with cell phones. Honestly, I will be saddened if Longmire goes off the air. Finishing the third season with one more episode on Netflix. Guess I’ll have to start all over again.

    I didn’t look through all the posts to see if anyone has mentioned it yet, but as someone else that is just so upset with A&E and how they cancel things after a cliffhanger (The Glades, Longmire and countless others over the years) I thought everyone would like to hear that they said that the new season of Longmire will start on Netflix in November!!!!! Yes, they were able to pick the show up on Netflix and seeing how many people were so mad , like me, I am sure everyone will eventually cancel their cable and start watching everything on NetFlix lol! All of the cable channels want loyal viewers but, for them, it is a one way street…no loyalty in return. I would much rather pay 7 bucks a month for Netflix and 6 bucks for Hulu than paying the stupid amount for cable who has lost concern about the viewers and only care about getting the next show up in running. The way the do it is the worst! I am pretty sure they know what will get the ax and what will stay long before we are ever told however, they keep it to themselves until it is a done deal and allow the show to exit while in the middle of a story. I would hate to think about how things would have gone if some of the really popular shows were canceled in the middle of a run…Breaking Bad had a horrible reception at first and ended up being called one of the best dramas on TV EVER! Could you have seen them canceling the show before Walter’s story was over? Maybe ending before season 4 started? Yeah, me either. A&E and Lifetime are the worst about this, they will cancel anything!!!!

      I’m with you. It’s getting where we only watch Netflix and am always upset when a season ends on a cliffhanger and we’re never sure if we’ll end the real finale finale. Longmire MUST STAY! Thanks for the heads up about November.

        It is for sure A&E that pulls the plug on shows that move at a steady pace instead of waiting to see how they will do a few seasons in. Had this been USA they would have beat it to death LOL!
        Sienna just asked me about the date for November and I think it was on a tv guide type article or The Huffington Post. I know many of the articles just say the end of the year but, I am looking for the article that I was reading saying it would be November and let you guys know where I got it:)

      Where did you see a Nov. date for S4 of Longmire on Netflix? As far as I knew they had not released a date yet for S4, speculation has been early Fall.

        Hi Sierra!,

        I want to say it was from a tv guide like site as sometimes I get updates in my email but, I will look and see if I can find the source;) Most of the articles that I have seen just say the second part or later part if the year. I hope I can find the answer for you so I don’t feel like a complete jerk for posting something that may not be true;(
