A&E has announced that the drama will return on Monday, May 27th, paired with the fourth season premiere of The Glades.

Here’s some additional information:

A&E NETWORK GRILLS UP SOME DRAMA THIS MEMORIAL DAY WITH TWO HUGE SEASON PREMIERES

SEASON TWO OF THE NETWORK’S HIT SCRIPTED SERIES “LONGMIRE,” FROM WARNER HORIZON TELEVISION, PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 27 AT 10 ET/PT FOLLOWING THE SEASON FOUR PREMIERE OF “THE GLADES,” FROM FOX TELEVISION STUDIOS, AT 9 PM ET/PT

New York, NY – April 10, 2013 – A&E Network is scheduling in some summer drama this Memorial Day, premiering back-to-back new seasons of its popular scripted series “Longmire,” from Warner Horizon Television, and “The Glades,” from Fox Television Studios. Season Two of the contemporary crime thriller “Longmire” premieres Monday, May 27th at 10 PM ET/PT immediately following the fourth season premiere of the hit drama “The Glades” at 9 PM ET/PT. This year, crime doesn’t get a holiday.

Last season, the duo of “The Glades” and “Longmire” propelled A&E to become the #1 cable network in Total Viewers on Sunday nights from 9-11 PM. “Longmire” became A&E’s #1 original drama of all time in Total Viewers. In its first season, the series averaged 4.0 million total viewers, making it the best freshman season in Total Viewers for any A&E series, scripted or non-fiction, in the network’s history. Additionally, the most recent season of “The Glades” was the series’ strongest ever, averaging 4.1 million total viewers.

“Longmire,” based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson, returns for its second season with more murder, secrets and betrayals from Absaroka County, Wyoming. The new season finds reluctant hero Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) back in the saddle after coming to terms with the devastating loss of his wife and dedicated to serving his community. But storm clouds are brewing… Walt’s reign as Sheriff hangs in the balance as he fights for re-election against rival, and his own deputy, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase). Walt’s right hand deputy, Vic Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) is visited by the ghost of a past she’d rather forget. Walt’s daughter Cady (Cassidy Freeman) searches for answers about her mother’s murder, while Walt’s possible connection to the death of his wife’s killer threatens to sweep his loyal friend Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips) into the mix. As the open skies darken and the winds kick up, Walt and his deputies plunge head first into the storm… confronting the question: how will each react when it hits?

In the season premiere episode of “Longmire,” a prison transfer goes awry and Walt urgently pursues a serial killer and his fellow escapees, who have taken hostages, up a mountain. Facing an impending storm with very limited resources, Walt’s mettle is put to the test and hypothermic hallucinations force him to face his past.

Season Four of “The Glades” is packed with even more mystery, intrigue and fun from Florida’s favorite homicide investigator – the disarmingly charming Detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore). From haunted plantations to rum-soaked shot girls and even a zombie apocalypse, Longworth is once again solving murders that can only happen in the Sunshine State. This season also promises more drama on the personal front for Longworth, Carlos (Carlos Gomez), Manus (Michelle Hurd) and Daniel (Jordan Wall) as friends and relatives from near and far arrive on the scene. But the big question remains to be answered as Longworth waits for Callie (Kiele Sanchez) to accept his marriage proposal, or not.

In the season four premiere episode of “The Glades,” Longworth must delve into a 150-year-old ghost story to solve a murder when the dead body of an heiress is found in a haunted plantation house.

“Longmire” is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Greer Shephard (“The Closer,” “Nip/Tuck”), Michael M. Robin (“The Closer,” “Nip/Tuck”), Hunt Baldwin (“The Closer,” “Trust Me”) and John Coveny (“The Closer,” “Trust Me”) serve as executive producers.

“The Glades” is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producers are Clifton Campbell (“White Collar,” “Profiler,” “21 Jump Street”) for Innuendo Productions, Inc. and Gary Randall (“Saving Grace”) for Grand Productions, Inc. The series is created by Clifton Campbell.

    I can’t wait for both of them
    I have watched since the very first episode of both shows. I just wrote it down on my calendar. I will be watching!!!!!!! :

    Both Longmire and the Glades are well-scripted and well-acted. NBC, CBS and ABC are lacking. Up to A&E to pick up the slack.

  5. says

    I like both Longmire and Glades. I would like longer seasons. Both are very good actors. All are good. The programing on now is a wash. If this real life, its not my life. I honestly don’t know anyone who would live like that even the people in the shows. I do not like watching the drama. Seems fke, all put on to make it more interesting. Well it ain’t. If wanted to watch 2 year olds I would go to a day car. I want programing like Longmire and Glades with charactors and story line. People with back stories and stories about their livies where they are going hopefully. I want to get out of my life for a while. Keep this coming.

    What took A&E so long????? I had to wade through several failed searches before finding this article, because so may people have been and still are asking when will Longmire’s second season begin. The truth is that my wife and I started watching The Glades, only because of Longmire. We like The Glades, but love Longmire. The action is the best bar none on TV. I liked it so much I did a spoof cartoon on the show. You can view it at http://www.flickr.com/photos/spooftoons/

    They need to bring back the British crime series like Pirote and Midsummer Murders and get rid of some of the reality junk. Storage wars really. If I want to see junk I’ll look in my closet and garage. The Glades and Longmire are great. I’m glad they are bring them back. Now some one needs to get rid of Dog the Bounty hunter. Him and his wife look like they are on the verge of a heart attack.

    WOW! THAT IS JUST GREAT, THE SUNDAY BEFORE I LEAVE THE COUNTRY ON A 2 MONTH VACATION. NO PHONES, NO TV! TOOK YOU PEOPLE LONG ENOUGH TO GET IT GOING AND JUST IN TIME FOR ME NOT TO GET TO SEE IT.

  9. Jeri Lynn says

    I can’t wait for The Glades to come bk. I will be counting down the days til its return:) As for Longmire, I watched 2 or 3 episodes and just couldn’t get into it, so I gave up.

    • Tracy says

      Jeri, I’m sorry you gave up…..I think if you had given it a few more episodes then you would have been as hooked as the other 4 million of us ! It’s a great show, with plenty of action between the characters, and lots of mystery.
