It's Official: Longmire Gets Season 4 Pickup from Netflix

Longmire Cancelled

Longmire rides on.

Netflix announced on Wednesday that it has picked up a 10-episode fourth season of the drama, which A&E cancelled earlier this year.

The streaming video service will debut new Longmire episodes in 2015, and those episodes will be available in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Word of the possible renewal surfaced earlier this month, though at that time, the Wester crime drama’s return was not a sure thing.

Per a Netflix release, the series’ fourth season “picks up moments after season three’s exciting finale. Walt Longmire (series star Robert Taylor), having found out who was behind the murder of his wife, succumbs to his darker impulses and takes off in pursuit of the killer with murder on his mind. Meanwhile, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase), the deputy who Walt fired for erratic, violent behavior, believes he has already figured out who the real culprit is. But during his confrontation with this suspected killer, a gun goes off. Now the audience will finally learn what happened, and whether Walt can be stopped before he makes a fatal choice.”
