Might old-school Longmire wind up on one of them fancy, space-age “streaming” services?
Netflix (which currently streams previous Longmire seasons) and Amazon are said to be among Warner Horizon’s streaming-service prospects, while Hulu and the burgeoning Yahoo Screen are considered to be long shots.
Ad-supported cablers are less likely to bite, as they must cater to a younger demo than the likes of Longmire attracts. (Despite being A&E’s most watched scripted series to date, Longmire wrapped Season 3 with an audience of 3.7 million viewers and a 0.6 demo rating among Adults 18-49, down 16 and 45 percent from its sophomore finale.)
Per Deadline, TNT — which originally developed (yet ultimately passed on) Longmire back in 2011, and where Last Ship and Major Crimes, for example, last pulled 4.4 mil/1.0 and 5.7 mil/0.8 — is not interested in offering the oater a new home.
