It’s the end of the road for Longmire, but not without a proper send-off. Netflix has renewed the Western crime drama for a sixth and final season.
The final season will comprise 10 episodes, allowing the series (which was resurrected by Netflix for Season 4, following cancellation at A&E) to end on its ‘own terms’.
Executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny said:
“We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories. Most importantly, we’re committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty.
Netflix vp originals Cindy Holland added:
“We are proud to be the home of the Longmire series, as so many viewers over the last few seasons have watched and been captivated by Walt’s (Robert Taylor) journey. There has been no better team to work with on this show than Greer, Hunt and John, and their tremendous cast and crew, and we have every confidence that they will have a satisfying conclusion to this revered series. We are grateful to them and our friends at Warner Bros., who have been tremendous partners.”
The sixth and final season of Longmire concludes in 2017, with an exact release date to be announced in due course.
Are you pleased Longmire gets the chance to end with closure, or would you have liked to see the series continue into a potential seventh season?
