It may have taken a few months, but A&E has finally given “Longmire” a third season order.
The crime thriller starring Robert Taylor wrapped its second season back in August and executive producer John Coveny tweeted that Season 3 was a go just a few days after, but the network remained curiously tight-lipped in terms of an official announcement. Why it took until Monday (Nov. 25) to confirm the news remains a mystery.
“‘Longmire’ has become one of the most compelling dramas on television with a devoted audience and we are so proud of the show,” A&E executive vice president David McKillop said in a statement.”We are thrilled to continue our wonderful partnership with Warner Horizon Television, the production team, and the talented cast and crew led by the exceptional Robert Taylor.”
“Longmire” stand as A&E’s number one original drama series of all time in total viewers. The 10-episode third season will likely debut sometime mid-2014.
Are you relieved that A&E finally came around and gave “Longmire” a third season?
