    Please don’t cancel this show! It is so refreshing to have a show that is not about sex all the time and has characters that all fit well together. I have been a fan since day one and I would be very sadden to see it go. If you have to dump a show try one of the stupid reality ones. But keep this modern day western.

    I am a huge fan of Longmire. It is definitely one of the better quality shows on cable. Please continue to keep the series going, and I promise to keep watching.

    An excellent show that’s different from the usual junk and genre that’s already on TV. An intelligent person’s TV show. Hopefully excellence isn’t cancelled for more of the same junk.

    Longmire is the modern day cowb0y , good guys fighting bad guys. The good guys winning sometimes, doing what every it takes to take care of his family and friends. He has honor and fights for what he believes is right. He has all the weaknesses that a coyboy has. He suffers all the pain his actions cause. It should not be cancelled.

    Great show & is far better than some of the junk on TV. People who watch stupid reality shows don’t have a life that’s any better that the one they are watching and shows like Longmire are totally over their heads. Hope the network can relate to being sane.

    Great show, most intresting on tv today. Will build an audience as time goes on. Beats other tv dramas, great acting and good story lines.

    Only show that I really look forward to watching each week. Wish A&E would order more than 10 episodes per season. Season is way to short. Renew for season 4. Best show A&E has in it’s lineup.

    I have been a Longmire fan since day one. I was very worried when I read it was canceled & very happy to see it was renewed again. I feel that it may a man’s show but we as women enjoy it a lot. Please don’t remove it from the schedule, I for one would truly miss watching the cast of Longmire.

    I like the show. We are tired of reality TV, all it does is show you how stupid you are when you act like they do. Longmire has a good story line and setting, with great actors and actresses. Don’t know why they go by ratings anyway. Put LONGMIRE back on TV. I miss it!

    One of the best series I’ve seen in forever! No gratuitous violence, blood or sex. Just a great storyline with strong believeable characters and a beautiful scenery. Or, I guess I could watch’ Housewive of Atlanta’ or whatever reality dreck passes for entertainment (and I use that word loosely) today.

    I really like the show it’s not a stupid reality show or a silly it’s got a good plot a good story line I guess that’s why they are going to cancel it.
