The second season of Longmire is almost here! I’ve been receiving e-mails from viewers for awhile now, asking when the second season of Longmire will premiere, and I finally have an answer. 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.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to the return of one or both of these shows?
Please bring back the glades for season 5!!!!
I think there should be a season 5 for the “The Glades” We have waited a long time for Callie and Jim to get married. And I think that the Marshall who is feeding him info on Callie’s ex shoots him, to make sure the Ex testifies. I enjoy both shows Longmire and The Glades They should both come back. Very disappointed that you would leave Jim to die alone. PLEASE PLEASE DON’T let it end that way. Thank you for your time.
all the coments are right I waited for sunday night for that hotty mat on the glades and Longmire a good old western whats wrong with you guys don’t we the people count?
I can’t understand when they get a great show like longmeire the would cancel it. I get tired of sex, booties and killings. I guess I can give up A&E. So few good tv shows. Anymore I could give up tv. Bring it back. Please. Sally
I really hope that they renew The Glades. We really enjoyed watching both Longmire and the
Glades. Might just stop watching that channel all together.
Love the Glades. Why is it getting cancelled. I saw previews of the guy from Glades in another series already. Does not look good. What’s up with that?
Lomgmire & The Glades helped make A & E # 1 and now they are being canceled!!! Are you kidding! We agree with Forest Loftis
I love Longmire and The Glades. Great television!
I love Glades and Longmire…. I will stop watching A&E if they are canceled. I have been watching sense the first season.
I love the comment ” A&E is TV you just can’t turn away from. ” I am about to prove that to be incorrect. Unless Longmire gets a third season I will be turning away. A&E seems to be seeking the low information viewers or at best those with no taste in entertainment. Too much crap .
Please bring back Longmire Best tv show
