There’s a reason those two are smiling in that picture above. “Longmire” has been renewed!
I’d like to think it was because of my oh-so-awesome recap of Monday night’s season finale of “Longmire,” because hours after my post, A&E decided to pick “Longmire” up for a third season.
Of course, more likely it was the millions of viewers who tuned in to watch Ed Gorski harass Vic Moretti, Lizzie and her attempts to seduce Walt, or Branch (unsuccessfully) trying to win votes for the sheriff election.
The show has averaged close to five million viewers this season and remains A&E’s highest rated drama. The good news broke when writer and co-creator John Coveny tweeted:
“Thanks to the 5 million plus weekly fans (live+7). Young and older skewing alike! The call just came: SEASON 3 for
#Longmire is a GO!”
Even though we’ll have to wait almost a year for season three, at least we can take comfort in knowing we’ll find out if Lizzie and Walt will get back together, if Henry will go to jail, if Branch will survive the two gunshots to his chest, and if Ferg will get his moment in the spotlight.
How excited are you that “Longmire” has been renewed?
