Our sister site Deadline is hearing that Warner Horizon, which produces the beloved yet cancelled-by-A&E drama, is preparing to shop it to both cable and digital outlets in the coming days.

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.

(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.)
