“Longmire,” canceled by A&E, might have a shot at being picked up by a new network. A&E just canceled “Longmire” following its third season on the network. The highest-rated scripted show for the network will now be off the rotation. According to a report from Entertainment Weekly on Thursday (Aug. 28), producer Warner Horizon is going to try to shop the show elsewhere. It seems like this could be a program that would fit on either another network or something like Netflix.
A press release from A&E states that, “We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together.” Apparently not proud enough to avoid leaving the fans of the show with an incredible cliffhanger that was supposed to entice them to tune in for season four. If there is a fourth season, it just won’t be on A&E now.
The cast of the show includes quite a few recognizable faces, including Robert Taylor as Sheriff Walt Longmire and Katee Sackhoff as Victoria Moretti. Lou Diamond Phillips also plays Henry Standing Bear and Cassidy Freeman was on the show as Cady Longmire. These could be draws for another network and fans will just have to hope that the first 33 episodes aren’t where these characters come to an end. The news of “Longmire” getting canceled hasn’t been reported very widely yet, but it is going to come as sad news to the die-hard fans.
