Netflix has picked up a fifth season of Longmire. The renewal was announced on the series’ Facebook page: “We’ve never been one to back down from a fight. Longmire will return to Netflix for Season 5.”
Netflix last year rescued the Western crime drama when A&E canceled it after three seasons, following a passionate save-the-show campaign by fans.
Based on the novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire‘s current fourth season centers on Walt Longmire as he succumbs to his darker impulses after finding out who was behind the murder of his wife, and takes off in pursuit of the killer.
Longmire stars Robert Taylor, along with Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley. Gerald McRaney and Ally Walker guest star. Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny, Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin serve as executive producers.
