Watch This: Season 4 Preview and Sneak Peek for Longmire

Robert Taylor as Longmire

Longmire was dropped by its old network after 3 seasons and was picked up amid a great fan outburst by Netflix. Season 4 will be starting on Netflix on September 10. In the meantime, you can watch all of the first 3 seasons on Netflix. To quote Longmire, “It’s not that you come back, it’s how you come back that matters.” This comeback was 100% fan driven.

I know Longmire isn’t the type of show I usually promote here. But it is filmed near me and I started watching to see if I could recognize any of the locations. It’s gorgeous scenery – supposedly set in Wyoming but actually filmed near Santa Fe, New Mexico.

And there is the fact that I like Katee Sackhoff, so I was watching to see her. However, it took almost no time before I was hooked on all the characters and their stories.

Robert Taylor is Sheriff Longmire. His deputies are played by Katee Sackhoff as Vic, Bailey Chase as Branch and Adam Bartley as The Ferg. Lou Diamond Phillips is Henry Standing Bear, one of many Native American characters in the show. If you’ve ever read anything by Tony Hillerman, you know how his books treated Native American culture. The mostly Cheyenne people and culture in Longmire are treated with the same kind of respect.

Other cast includes Cassidy Freeman, Louanne Stephens, Gerald McRaney and Ally Walker.

None of the characters are wholly pure, all have demons of their own, including the main characters in the sheriff’s department of this small town. It makes for great story arcs that go on for many episodes. Which is all the more reason to go back and catch up on seasons 1–3 before you start season 4.

One of the multi-episode stories involves the murder of Longmire’s wife, which is what I think the scene in the preview below relates to.

The following teaser is for season 4. You see glimpses of many characters and some of the beautiful Western scenery.

If you’ve never watched Longmire, give it a try. And if you are already a fan of this complex character-driven drama, come celebrate with me on September 10 when we can start watching the 10 new episodes of season 4.

  1. Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley aren’t guest stars they are part of the cast. The Season 4 Teaser Trailer are all scenes from seasons 1 through 3. The pickup by Netflix was NOT 100% fan driven. Warner Horizon execs were on the phone to Netflix 12 mins after the cancellation announcement according to showrunner Greer Shephard. I think the showrunners and Warner has something to do with the Netflix pickup! You need to check your facts.

  2. I can’t help but think that strong fan-based support concentrated Netflix’ mind to the intelligence of picking up this very smart series. If Longmire is as good now as it was before, then they will have even stronger fan support to help them decide to continue the series.

    One character you didn’t mention, that is part of every single episode is the amazing landscape.
