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.

  • Please keep Longmire on the station lineup. This is the best thing going on television other than the Glades (and look what your idiot execs did to that show)! You need to fire your execs and put new ones in that make better decisions. If Longmire is cancelled I will NEVER watch another show of any venue again on A&E.

  • “Longmire”: Great series, very good actors and story line, A&E finally had a show that has a following with repeat veiwers and they can’t decide to renew the series, they must have the same level of common sense as some of the politicians running our country,

  • Longmire is the poop. Def wanna see it go for at least ten seasons. There shouldn’t even be a question or a seconds hesitation about running the show for years.

  • Longmire is the best show on tv. It is excellent in that it is well written and well casted. We are faithful viewers of Longmire and hope that it is renewed for season 3 and many more seasons beyond!

  • I agree with everyone above Longmire is the most wholesome and well written seen on A&E as well as other channels. The storyline is good and it is clean. Love writing and acting from the stars of the show. Bring it Back!!!!

  • Renew Longmire now. Best show on TV. Don’t leave us hanging A&E ! If you replace this wonderful show with another idiotic debacle, we will boycott or give you no viewing time. Don’t make us call the Sheriff !

  • Please don’t do to Longmire what you did to Glades. Keep delaying the next season for so long that you lost a good many viewers and then had the nerve to cancel it, mainly due to lack of viewers. A&E needs new decision makers, the present ones have lost their edge.

    Comment by Nancy Beaers – October 20, 2013 07:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with you. They just keep playing around, with giving us a new season. I so enjoy this show.

  • Longmire is one of the best shows on tv and like some of the others spoke , if you don’t bring back Longmire than you are a network l don’t want to give my time to.

  • I sure hope that A&E renews Longmire — just read they are not renewing Glades, which I was very disappointed to see. It’s hard to believe that Glades has been cancelled and they are not sure about Longmire when there are so many other shows that are not even worth watching.

  • I hope the network airs longmire .my husband and I can’t wait to see the episodes each week. It is great show. We miss it terribly. Wish the new season would start . Still angry that the that the network took away Detroit 187. I can promise that I will not wat a&e any.ore if longmide doesn’t return.

      • It certainly doesn’t seem to be going anywhere fast ! I receive this same message several times a week. While waiting for him to come back, being positive here, I’m reading all of the Longmire books. I think, counting the new one, that there are eight and I’ve read six. nancy n

  • Love Longmire. One of the only shows we watch as a family, my husband, two boys & myself. Can’ t wait for season 3.

    • I love Longmire but have gotten really tired of seeing the notice about “it might be renewed.” I feel sure that there are business people that run this show, so tell me what it takes for them to make up their minds? Are they doing the same thing that they did to Glades? Make people wait long enough and everyone will forget the story line? If so it worked to their satisfaction, and NO one elses, when they cancelled the show. Don’t think A&E’s rating can take another disaster such as the way Glades ended. Not at my house it won’t.

  • Bring Longmire back and LEAVE it on!!!!!!!!! Why just a few weeks?? It’s the best thing you guys have going.

  • I think Longmire is right up there with the good wife and homeland. why on earth should they need to fight for another season? It should run for at least ten more seasons. Haraah for Longmire

  • Just finished watching the Longmire marathon of season 2. I love this show and hope to see new episodes soon. I don’t understand why the cable networks have so few episodes per season. Since going digital almost everyone was forced to subscribe to cable or satellite to get decent tv reception in Denver. These networks should be raking in enough dough from subscribers and advertisers to provide their customers with more episodes per season for quality shows like Longmire that appeal to both genders and all ages.

  • With all the crap on tv finally a show worth watching and we the viewers have to beg for it to return. So here goes please please bring Longmire back. Don’t just tease us with reruns.

  • I enjoy both Longmire and The Glades and do hope that A & E has the good sense to bring both shows back and SOON! Love the interaction of all the characters. You can not leave Henry’s storyline uncompleted, do need to resolve Branch’s shooting. And as for The Glades, gotta get Jeff found and healed and married to Callie.

  • BRING LONGMIRE BACK! !! MY MOM AND I ARE HOOKED ON THAT show. If you DO NOT RENEW. … YOU ARE THE STUPIDEST PEOPLE ALIVE. THE GLADES NEEDS TO BE CANCELED. THE GLADES WAS A HORRIBLE SHOW.

    Comment by Courtney Jacobson – November 22, 2013 07:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I no longer watch Bravo due to Housewives ad nauseum, I have never watched an episode of The Kardashians. Bought Season 1, will buy Season 2, have all the books; rest assured, I can watch and read over and over again and skip A&E altogether should Longmire not be renewed.
