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.”

  13. M3rc Nate says:

    I’m very happy about this, i really enjoy Longmire and its one of those shows that is solid all the way around, yet in today’s TV market it gets cancelled while reality shows and garbage get season after season.

    • Brian says:

      My thoughts exactly. Sad social comment when a show with substance and a true plot gets cancelled and yet other mindless sitcoms and self aggrandizing realty shows have such a fan base. Am so happy.

    • Sheri says:

      I agree wth you Nate. I am sick of reality shows. I can hardly wait for the new episodes of Longmire.

  14. That news makes us extremely happy.

    • marcia rodes says:

      So true to put on more dumb reality shows…just like Syfi channel. Irving wanted to veg out on reality ….my life is enough thank you.

    • KitKat says:

      One of the best shows out there…ever! So exactly when is NETFLIX delivering on this great decsion? I have called NETFLIX but can’t seem to get an answer.

  16. Audrey Diffley-Zipkin says:

    So,happy ! I never miss this show. It is great.

  17. Jeanie says:

    Awesome news!

  18. I am happy that Longmire was save and will return next year. I still hope that there will be a 5th season.

  19. Shaun Cox says:

    I would like Longmire if they could put it on a TV station instead of Net flicks not everyone has a computer or other devices to stream to watch.

  20. Jerry Bennett says:

    YES! One of the best shows on tv. Way to go Netflix!

  21. Leah holley says:

    WooHoo!!! Thank you Netflix!!!!

  22. Ray says:

    Wonder if there’s any chance Netflix will also pick up Witches of East End.

    • I hope they do. I don’t know why it got canceled in the first place.

      • Gus T.T. Showbiz says:

        It was cancelled because the ratings were atrocious and way down when compared to season 1. They went dark in season 2 and it backfired on them.

        • Ray says:

          The ratings decline probably had less to do with the content of the show than it did that the show resurfaced in the three months before anyone expected it to. It had a fall debut but came back in the summer with little to no cross platform or multi-channel promotion.

          • Moment says:

            The thing is, there was no ratings decline like he’s claiming. The overall viewer numbers have been steady for three seasons now, the 18-49 has been too.

        • Moment says:

          Nonsense. The overall viewer numbers have been consistent for three seasons now, the 18-49 hasn’t dropped much either. It still pulled a few .5 18-49 during Season 1, same as Season 3.

      • Bruce says:

        How about MOONLIGHT? I’ve never seen a better TV drama with such compatible and interesting characters, yet CBS (or was it ABC?) went ahead and pulled an A&E on the best vampire show ever!

  23. gail says:

    LOVE THE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. karenh43 says:

    I am a Longmire fan and I’m so glad Netflix has picked up this powerful drama. Good for them!

  25. dj says:

  26. Enri says:

    That is pure awesomeness right there! Thanks Netflix!

  27. Richard Pawl says:

    great!

  28. oh, yes !! this show is one of the last that does not have to have nudity, vulgar language and aspects of life that we do not believe in…thank you so much…

  29. LK says:

    Very happy!

  30. Karen Scott says:

    #LongLiveLongmire Best news of the day!!

  31. Nina DiSesa says:

    Thank God. I love this series and everyone in it. I was so angry when A&E canceled it. Once again Netflix steps up to the plate and shows the cable stations and networks how to be an entertainment giant.

  32. Kat Farr says:

    yea Netflix!!! You gave us closure with The Killing…and thanks for giving the fans Longmire back!!!

  33. tlast1 says:

    Yes. I’ve followed the show from the beginning.

  34. Ann says:

    I am very pleased. Longmire was in a class all its own, no high tech going on, just plain old following the clues.

  35. R.K. Amos says:

    Beyond ecstatic about this! Made my MONTH!

  36. MattK says:

    HOORAY for NETFLIX!

  37. VLo says:

    I am so pleased to see that Longmire lives on! I loved the series and look forward to it’s continuation on Netflix!

  38. Lennard Dillon says:

    Longmire should have never been dropped. It is one of the best shows to ever be on TV since Gunsmoke.

  39. Margie says:

    I already got on my Netflix acct. and did a chat with them. I asked that they pass along a message to the powers that be to say “thank you” for picking up Longmire. Maybe if everyone who has Netflix and loves Longmire does that they would see how much this means to all the fans.

  40. PLK says:

    Thank you, Netflix! Can’t wait to season four! Is it too early to hope for a season five? Awesome show, cast, crew, and story telling!

  41. homzy11 says:

    Good for Netflix, maybe they will pick up some of the others that were canceled

  42. Jen says:

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

  43. Sherry Taylor says:

    YAY!

  44. Deion says:

    Yasssssssssssss!

  45. Barb Richardson says:

    this is an amazing show I am so glad Netflix picked it up – last word from the killer “I can make another one.”

  46. Vickie says:

    We Love this show, the characters and drama. I think A&E were stupid to cancel Longmire, it is a great show.

  47. Brian Freund says:

    Good move for netflix. Now if they’d pickup Dallas and make my holiday complete!

  48. cattyfan says:

    And now…I will subscribe to Netflix. Because Longmire is worth it. Thank you for picking it up.
