Netflix and Warner Horizon (the producer of the Longmire series) have been discussing the possibility of the streaming service picking up the cancelled series for a fourth season.
While both side are hopeful that an agreement can be reached, negotiations have been tricky. If a deal is made, production on season four would likely begin in March 2015.
Longmire follows the life of a Wyoming county sheriff who’s returned to work following his wife’s demise. With the support of his family and co-workers, he solves cases and works to stay in office. The cast includes Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Bailey Chase, Adam Bartley, Cassidy Freeman, and Lou Diamond Phillips.
As fans know all to well, A&E cancelled Longmire after three seasons. Viewership dropped slightly in season three but the 18-49 demo ratings dropped 24%. Ad-supported networks like A&E depend on advertisers for their revenue and they favor younger audiences.
What do you think? Are you hoping that Netflix orders a fourth season of Longmire? Are you a Netflix subscriber? If not, would you become one?
