Longmire (Not Quite) Renewed for Season 3

Get More: Renewals

longmire renewedA&E’s Longmire appears thisclose to lassoing a third season.

On Thursday, exec producer John Coveny announced on Twitter that the hit drama had been renewed for Season 3 — something the network has yet to confirm. (An A&E rep declined to comment.)

Insiders tell TVLine that Coveny jumped the gun and that no deal is currently in place for a third season. A pickup seems likely though, as Monday’s Season 2 finale hit season highs in total viewers and key demos.

      • I am sending Email to A&E I will not watch another show of theirs if Longmire is cancelled. A&E does not give their shows a chance. Other networks for quite a few of their shows, keep them on for more then 2 seasons, seeing if they will catch on. A&E gets the viewers hooked on a show then stabs the viewers in the back by cancelling the show.

          • I’m with you for sure. NO TO REALITY SHOWS! ALL OF THEM. INCLUDING AI & all the rest of the so called TALENT genre shows, ALL AWARDS SHOWS, and FORGET ABOUT housewives, and dynasties and boo boos and pawn shops and storage auctions and omg will it ever stop? Give me ONE GOOD DRAMA like Longmire and I’m good to go.

      • Why are the seasons so short (10 episodes) for Longmire? It’s the best on TV!

      • I have been checking for weeks to see if Longmire has been scheduled! Now you’re saying its a rumor? No, please say you’re renewing this show! I love this show! I will be sooo hurt if this show is not returning!

    • Longmire – our favorite show!!!
      So happy they will be back on this season

      Comment by Jaccile – December 15, 2013 05:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I will make it plain and simple. A and E will never have my very large family as viewers of anything unless Longmire is on in 2014. You have the most watched TV drama in history and you think about Canceling it?? Who makes these decisions?

      Comment by ann – January 6, 2014 09:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • When?? Can’t wait to see Longmire back on the schedule – one of the good shows on TV. Sad about losing Glades, though – especially with Our Hero getting shot in the last scene of the last seasonal episode. Would like to see Longmire return for several (or more) seasons!

    • love this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

      Comment by wllccaf – January 10, 2014 09:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I completely agree!! If they take away Longmire, I will quit watching A&E. They took my “The Glades” away, that was bad enough, and they took it away on a Cliff Hanger!! How the Hell do you do that to your viewers????? Bad Business, and Television!!!!!!!!

      Bring Back Both Longmire and The Glades!!!!!!

      Get rid of the Stupid Reality Shows!!! There is nothing Real about them!!!!!

      Comment by Rob – February 24, 2014 12:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I AGREE. WHY DID THEY TAKE GLADES OFF THE AIR? I WATCHED IT FAITHFULLY EVERY WEEK AND YOU LEFT THE VIEWERS WITH A CLIFFHANGER. HOW DO YOU DO THAT TO YOUR LOYAL VIEWERS.

        Comment by Dorothy Bergeron – April 14, 2014 09:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I totally agree. I can’t believe they took off Glades and the way it is looking probably Longmire too. I loved both of these shows — can’t believe we will never know what happens on Glades and maybe not on Longmire either. Looks like to me they could take off some of those trashy shows and put on something worth watching, like Glades and Longmire. I am very disappointed with A&E. They seem to make some of the craziest decisions. I like to watch Duck Dynasty, but if Longmire isn’t renewed I just as soon watch a channels that has decent shows on it.

      Comment by Ryan – August 29, 2013 11:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Totally agree they need to bring back Longmire!!!!!! As well as they need to bring back Glades . . . A & E is always putting a good show in and then taking it off the air, therefore pissing everyone off!!

        • Please bring back Glades and Longmire. They are two of the best shows on A&E.

          Comment by Nancy Lister – November 15, 2013 11:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Amen!!!! They are the 2 best shows on A&E. You cannot take away a show on a cliffhanger!!!!

            It is not right!!!! Especially on a show that has gone more seasons than any other show on your Network. What were you thinking?!?!

            Duck Dynasty is a good show too, but I will quit watching it if you don’t do the right thing!!!!

      I have almost quit watching local regular programming because of shows like this.

      Bring them back!!! Matt Passmore is awesome.

  • Longmire is the best American mystery series on TV, so this should really be a no-brainer for A&E (and would be if a certain ultra-lowbrow reality show wasn’t getting twice the viewers).

    • I don’t understand A&E Longmire is such a great show. Why is it, that you see some crappie shows left on. I just love Lou Diamond Phillips.

  • Crazy not to renew this show. Have to find out who shot Branch and if he lives…..he better! Now if Glades can be renewed and Callie and Jeff run off into witsec with Ray, life would be good. Oh, and Jim lives.

  • My husband and are so impressed Longmire that we can’t feel satisfied with any other show on any network whatsoever! The writing and the acting are above top notch and the only thing we can do to sustain ourselves is read the Longmire books and watch John Wayne. Nothing else is comparable, it’s the only show of its kind on TV. Not only should the show be renewed, it should be aired ASAP and run for a longer season! I hope A&E puts the season out on DVD sooner too because I’d like to get it for my husband for Christmas when he gets back from deployment!! Longmire is just awesome!

  • Longmire it totally deserving of a season three renewal. There’s nothing like it on TV. It’s a refreshing change of pace to the normal big city-cop show. It is well written, and I love all the actors, the scenery, etc. Come on A&E just do it!

  • This is a wonderful series. I really hope A&E doesn’t cancel this one in favor of another brainless “reality” show like Bravo’s Housewives or E’s Kardashians, with people who get paid for doing what, living? I have to give the Robertsons of Duck Dynasty credit: they are entertaining and make products that contribute to our economy.

    • I am so sick of A&E and their stupid moves. We need another Longmire way before 2014. The A&E network is just lying to us. They are hoping that we will forget Longmire. I won’t because I keep copies of what I Email, just encase something like this would happen. I sent them an Email yesterday, will see if they answer me.

  • The writers of Longmire either have performed their due diligence or they they possess an intimate knowledge of Wyoming and the northern section of the area. Aside from the fictional county and town, everything else is spot on. Having been raised in Eastern Idaho and spending time throughout Wyoming working and playing; they have hit a home run with this show. It’s one of the best I have watched. I cannot wait until season 3 debuts.

  • I sure hope John Coveny is right even if he did jump the gun so to speak. It’s true Longmire is the best show on. I’m a fan of a few shows but Longmire tops the list. Love to watch Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips work they go together like biscuits and gravy ;-)

  • Please tell me you are going to bring Longmire back!!!!!! You keep crap like Duck Dynasty and this has not been decided for a third season. Give me a break. Guess when you lose all your viewers you will get someone who will make better decisions or fold up and go homer.
