Netflix Renews “Longmire” For A Fifth Season

Netflix has renewed the western crime drama “Longmire” for a fifth season.

The series ran on A&E for three seasons before being abruptly cancelled by the network despite scoring consistently strong ratings, albeit demographically skewing older than most advertisers like.

Netflix picked up the series for a ten-episode fourth season which launched in September on the streaming service and did well enough that the service has opted for this quick renewal which was announced through the site’s Facebook page.

Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley all star in the series which will likely return around September next year.
