    Longmire is the best TV drama on TV at the moment and my husband and I look forward to it’s intelligent plotting, good acting, fine character development, and beautiful cinematography every week. It is a series that demands that the audience actual think- what a refreshing change. We will be heartbroken if the series is not renewed- especially if they leave all of the plots unresolved. Please combat the barren TV wasteland and renew this series.

  2. Bryni Tuttle says

    Longmire should be renewed for season 3 since it is one of the few tv shows worth watching. It is well-written and well-acted.

  3. Ron says

    What’s not to like about this show? Longmire is a winner and one of the best shows on television. Strong characters, excellent actors and a loyal following. I’m disturbed that A&E hasn’t renewed yet for season 3, but they would be foolish if they didn’t. But hey, I’m not a TV executive so clearly it’s not my decision, but I sure wish it was! I would have renewed right after the premier of Season 2!

    Rarely does a TV show gain “legs” unless the characters strike a chord. This series is among the best in recent memory for perfect casting, impeccable scripts, and empathetic players. Please renew. I am a 60+ boomer who remembers the iconic heroes of fifties-TV Westerns. Longmire is a Western hero for the 21st century. Taylor, Sackhoff, Phillips: extraordinary actors who give all to their portrayals. Americans need this guy! Craig’s books feature so much irony and dichotomy in the portrayal of this iconic sheriff. There needs to be more seasons to explore Longmire’s interior conflicts and those of the caring people around him who embody his place and his grounding. Drama series is in need all of what Longmire has to offer.

    Longmire is the ONLY TV show I watch. I hope it lasts as long as some of the westerns of years gone by (which my hubby watches daily). This is a quality show!

    My wife and I love Longmire. We recently drove from Seattle to Buffalo, WY to attend Longmire Days. What a treat! The cast and Mr. Johnson were so nice and gracious and accessible. We sure hope they do it again next year. Yes, please renew it.

  7. Dixie says

    Cannot deal with the thought of not having Longmire to look forward too. Real people doing an excellent job in acting the part of people I have learned to enjoy. I am even beginning to like Branch. Please, renew for several more seasons. I watch each week and cannot believe the show is over I get so involved in watching.

  8. Helen DePrima says

    Longmire is one of the very few shows I never miss. There is so much more room for development of the plot line and the characters even without the timely crime stories. Keep this show even if you drop everything else — why let a winner get away?

  9. says

    I really look forward to this show every week. Couldn’t wait for it to come back on the air. This show is a case of

    tv show is better than the books and I enjoyed the books very much. Bring it back for another season.

  10. Janet says

    This is the best show on TV I am to busy to watch very much but I make time for this
    One if it is not renewed it will be the biggest mistake this channel has ever made

  11. Sarah says

    I have enjoyed the show and hope it does return for Season 3. The actors are becoming more comfortable in their respective roles and they need time to mesh together even more.

  12. Patricia says

    I already left one!
    If you didn’t get it then you might question how many others you may have missed!

    We all like Longmire and want the show to be back next season and several more after that!
    Walt is a real man in the new west, and he needs to be brought back just to see what new things are coming his way!
    I watch it several times a week, I know it only comes on once, but I don’t mind watching the same one a few times before the new one next week. So you could renew it and show a new one several times a week? I’m all for that!
