    We love the show, do not cancel, would love to be to watch it all year long, much better than all the silly realty shows on TV

    Longmire is a gem and A&E would be foolish to cancel it. Over three MILLION people.. and counting.. can’t be wrong. How does a show get nominated for an EMMY award? Seems to me there are numerous episodes and definitely actors in Longmire that deserve award recognition.

    This is one of my favorite shows on TV today. With other junk on TV, this is breath of fresh air! I look forward to watching it every week. PLEASE do not cancel it!!!!

    Longmire is an outstanding show with suburb cast members. My wife and look forward to Robert Taylor and other cast members. If you canceled the show, we will no longer watch A & E. Taylor is the modern day Matt Dillon!!!! Bring it back.

    I watch it on netflix can’t wait for season 3 to come on it. I even pay for it if I could find it. Don’t cancel it just because you don’t think people are watching it because we do!

      You can get all of season 3 via video on demand on Amazon or Itunes right now. It’s so nice without any commercials or having to skip over the commercials. It’s only like $2.84 an episode for the whole season and it’s yours to watch whenever you want. You get a slight price break for buying the whole season versus individual episodes. The DVD and availability on Netflix won’t be until probably late May or early June 2015.

    We love this show and hope you will reconsider the cancelation. We have enjoyed all of the seasons and would look on line to see when a new would be begining.

    Longmire brought me back to A&E, which I had not watched in quite some time. I mostly gave up on television altogether – too many reality shows and silly sitcoms. I found Longmire on Netflix and now set my clock so I don’t miss an episode. It is the ONLY television show I do this for. I certainly hope A&E is savvy enough to continue this series. I’ve told all my friends and family to catch up and tune in!

    Love the show, I have told so many of my friends about the show. I am now watching the reruns on Nexflix.
    I hope it remains on the air. A&E keep it running.

    The only show I make sure to watch my daughter and grand-daughter all watch and enjoy this show, Please do not cancel this SHOW.

  11. Wanda Selby says

    Please do not cancel Longmire. It is one of the few I look forward to seeing during the week. I wish it were on all fall and through the winter.
    Bring them back. Love Robert Taylor.

  12. Carol McConnell says

    Love this show. It’s the not a typical shoot ’em up bang – bang show. If you cancel this one like you did Glades I may never watch A&E again.

  13. C Wagler says
