New York, NY – April 24, 2014 – A&E Network’s critically acclaimed hit series “Longmire” returns for a third season on Monday, June 2 at 10 PM ET/PT.

    Glad Netflix finally announced when Longmire will be released. I signed up with Netflix when the network picked up the fourth season of Longmire. Netflix should have made 13-14 episodes instead of ten because it is a great show.

    Of all the junk aired by A&E, the really well-written and well-acted series Longmire gets the can? This was one series I would watch every installment. I don’t understand…

    Really wish there were more episodes in a season. 10 is painful. 20 to 22 should be a season of a TV series. Find more and more, less episodes and more commercials. Just when the story is getting good, it ends for another year. I am so tired of reality shows, that there isn’t much to watch on TV anymore, so really enjoy a good drama like Longmire with a terrific storyline and great acting. There are so few good shows anymore, we are usually watching DVD series of 70’s shows, Rockford Files, Simon and Simon etc.
