According to The Hollywood Reporter, the recently-cancelled A&E drama Longmire has been picked up for another season by Netflix. The 10-episode fourth season will debut on Netflix's on-demand streaming service in 2015.
"When Warner Horizon Television came to us with the idea for a new season of Longmire, we were intrigued because the series is so unique, and consistently great," Netflix VP of original content Cindy Holland said. "We are thrilled to help continue Walt Longmire’s story for his large and passionate following."
Based on the Walt Longmire Mysteries novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire starred Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, a Wyoming county sheriff who returns to his post after the death of his wife. Supporting cast includes Katee Sackhoff as Deputy Victoria "Vic" Moretti and Lou Diamond Phillips as Henry Standing Bear. It debuted as A&E's #1 original series premiere of all time, bringing in 4.1 million viewers for its 2012 debut, and maintained viewer numbers through its first and second season, seeing a slight dip in the third. The show was cancelled despite a wide and vocal fanbase and maintaining its viewer numbers.
