Longmire has become one of the most compelling dramas on television with a devoted audience and we are so proud of the show,” A&E GM David McKillop said in announcing the pick-up. “We are thrilled to continue our wonderful partnership with Warner Horizon Television, the production team, and the talented cast and crew led by the exceptional Robert Taylor.”

    • Absolutly Yay!! Just hope the Duck Dynasty fiasco is resolvd by then, because if not I won’t be watching ANY A&E programing. I love Longmire, but what A&E has done is just plain wrong. Also, I’ll be trying to boycott thier sponsers.

      • Really? Wonder what the IQ is of those folks watching Duck Dynasty?

        • No comparison between Duck Dynasty and Longmire! Longmire is quality programming. Lots of twists and turns that make you think. Love that show!

          • Love this show. It has a plot and morals in every episode, not just some rambling about nothing that is of any value. These low cost, reality show, no brainers are only making the producers and the sponsers $$$. What can I say? That is what the majority watches. Duh!!!!!

          • Russ…we all like duck danasty because most of the people who watch it is redneck southern country folks who enjoy good clean comedy from people who has moral values I guess you’re a rich stuck up person with no sense of humor and we are educated too!

        • Russ, it has nothing to do with anyone’s IQ, don’t so flippen stupid. It has to do with morals.

        • I don’t know..whats YOUR IQ????? Since it is the NUMBER ONE reality show on cable tv…that must say something about the IQ or morality of those who DO NOT watch it
          Loser

      • A&E seem to NOT KNOW when Season 3 will start…Seems the Brain trust there is a sandwich short of a picnic …Because if they KNEW they would let us fans Know…I am hoping another network who knows HOW to produce shows will pick it up !!!!

  • Thank GOD. I was starting to get nervous. My favorite show by far. Can’t wait for next season.

  • I thought that it had already been renewed.

    I guess not, but was there ever really a serious doubt. I don’t really think so.

    I will say I didn’t particularly like the season finale, where everyone on the show was in crisis. A little overblown and much too spread out in my view.

    Comment by J.Norman – November 25, 2013 10:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Only 10 episodes? Why not 13 like last season? Oh, well. 10 is better then nothing!

    Comment by Badpenny – November 25, 2013 10:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Not watching because I don’t care for the soap opera love triangle they started with. The writing got a little messed up at the end of last season.

    • I know. It was a bit off putting. If we’re going to start with shipper wars then tis going to be a problem. Wish they’d just stop.

      Comment by Sage – January 20, 2014 12:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wonderful show – my wife and I enjoy it week after week. Robert Taylor has given an iconic performance as Walt- one certainly worthy of recognition by the Emmys. Love seeing Katee Sackhoff in such a different role from Starbuck – she has great range as an actress and I’ve enjoyed it as the mystery behind Vic’s previous life have unfolded – I hope there’s more of that story to be told. Glad the election storyline is over and that Branch is sticking around as a deputy – hoping the romance with Cady continues. Looking forward to next season!

  • FINALLY! I can now watch the last two episodes of season 2 — they’ve been sitting on my DVR for months.

  • Woot! Very happy news. Now about only a 10 episode run — 13 was too short. How about uppinh the count some?

    Comment by Georgia Madman – November 25, 2013 11:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You should be happy that it was renewed! Those that liked the Glades more do not get any resolution to that bigger cliffhanger!

      Comment by lou – November 25, 2013 11:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I watch this and The Glades BUT personally would rather have had The Glades renewed over Longmire!

  • I have it on good authority from one of the writers that early on in Season 3, Sherriff Longmire acquires the ability to use force lightning.

  • So glad they are renewing this show my husband and I really enjoy longmire

    Comment by Shirley P – December 7, 2013 08:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Likes – Walt’s Girlfriend, Katee and Ferg budding friendship, McRaney as villian and buttinski he steals every scene – so give him more more more. Sackoff’s husband storyline is so thin it’s worn-out already. (Transfer him to Venezuela already). Boring – An indian casino as the big heavy (cliche), Gas Drilling as the big heavy (too PC), Denver detective persona axe-grinding might work for another 2 -3 episodes then it’ll be flat too. At the rate everyone is getting killed the county has like 13 characters left!

  • its about time they tell us it was renewed I love Longmire Hope it lasts for many many more years.

  • Last two episodes have by far set the level of this show right at the Top, can’t wait for the season 3. It just got real from the fairy tale of daily routine’s characteristic job, every single role is up for a new dimensions, “High & Lows” of life, you’ll really get to know what it actually means. Love it

  • Love Longmire! Reminds me of the old Gunsmoke, and Palladin. Kicking butt and takin’ names! Glad Branch is seeing the light. BUT would enjoy more Ferb.

  • My husband and I discovered this show by accident and we absolutely love it. Characters are great and it’s entertaining without all the sex and violence many other shows have now. Keep it! Too many good shows get cancelled. Let’s start cancelling some of the stupid reality shows.

    Comment by Lori – January 7, 2014 07:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Love Longmire. Great cast, great acting. Wish A&E renewed The Glades as well. Two great shows. Cancel some of the ridiculous reality shows.

  • If “Longmire” is their most popular original series ever, why has the premiere I expected in January been delayed until the summer?!

    Comment by Gary – January 21, 2014 07:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Season 1 premiered first week of June, Season 2 last week of May. One would expect same timeframe for Season 3 launch.

  • Great news! I could not imagine that this great series would not be renewed. This is one of the best among a wasteland of sub-par television.shows.

  • Can’t wait for Longmire to return,He’s the toughest sheriff since Marshall Dillon, and I like him!!!!

  • Enough western to satisfy a cowboy, modern story lines and a main character (about my age) with integrity. OK A&E update your postings and let us know when to watch the first episode.

  • Longmire and Hell of Wheels….addicted to both. Soooo glad they are both returning.
