A&E's Longmire Saddles Up for Second Season
Sheriff Walt has a long, dusty, crime-solving road ahead of him, because A&E has renewed Longmire for a second season.
Our sister site Deadline reports that the network made the decision only four weeks into the Western-flavored drama’s inaugural season.
The mystery series, set in a part of Wyoming where lots of bad stuff seems to happen, stars Robert Taylor as the titular character and Battlestar Galactica grad Katee Sackhoff as his deputy, Vic. Smallville alum Cassidy Freeman plays Longmire’s daughter.
A&E apparently likes the numbers Longmire is racking up: Its premiere grabbed 4.1 million total viewers and was the channel’s most-watched scripted series debut ever.
Longmire airs Sundays at 10/9c, and its Season 1 finale is scheduled for August 5.
