Longmire: Season Three Renewal for A&E Series?

Longmire season threeIt looks like Longmire will be renewed for a third season. Executive producer John Coveny broke the news on Twitter today, writing, “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!”

According to Deadline, A&E and Warner Bros. have no comment and insiders cautioned that the two sides have yet to finalize a deal. There has been some speculation that a deal could include A&E taking some ownership in the show.

Starring Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Bailey Chase, Adam Bartley, Cassidy Freeman, and Lou Diamond Phillips, Longmire is the cable channel’s highest-rated scripted series by far.

Season two averaged 3.7 million viewers, nearly a million more than Bates Motel’s audience. The Longmire finale drew 4.42 million, nearly a series high.

Unfortunately, things don’t look as good for The Glades.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Longmire? Will you be watching season three?

      I TOTALLY agree–my husband and I LOVE this show !!! I’m VERY pleased you decided to air Season 3.. we had decided–like many others I have read, to NOT watch anything else on A & E –IF you had not changed your minds !! It would have been TRAGIC to have lost Lonmire, just because you didn’t want to AIR it !! VERY pleased–Thank You !!!

    The plot lines are excellent and the character development from episode to episode is awesome. Really smart move to put the show on Netflix, as it allows late discoverers of the series to appreciate this hidden gem. The show combines the genres of mystery, western, and cop drama into a real hit. Great show!

    We met the author; love his writing ; and can’ t wait for this year’s season to begin. Longmire is a terrific series and far exceeds the reality shows now inundating every network!

    We really liked Longmire and hope it comes back. Besides being a good show it beats the hell out of the stupid scripted supposedly reality shows.

    My husband and I think Longmire is one of the top 3 programs on TV right now. It is very entertaining. Longmire is down-to-earth and provocative at the same time. It’s a vey well-done program – top notch!
