Season 6 of Longmire brought the Sheriff Walt Longmire story to an end in a way that I’m sure made many fans happy. As a whole, I thought the season was excellent. It gave the actors some room to stretch, resolved a number of lingering issues, and went out on a golden rainbow of happiness. There are spoilers ahead.

Longmire season 5 is now streaming on Netflix. It sticks to the one crime per episode procedural format, but carries elements of the story over from episode to episode. Season 5 spoilers ahead. Continue reading “Review: Longmire season 5”
Netflix released the first teaser for season 5 of Longmire. Season 5 starts up right after the cliffhanger at the end of season 4. The theme of the season looks to be about loyalty. Continue reading “Watch This: Longmire Season 5 Trailer”
The official trailer for season 4 of Longmire came from Netflix. Season 4 centers on Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) after finding out who was behind the murder of his wife. He wants to find the killer and take justice into his own hands.
I ran a teaser trailer earlier here, but it was mostly rehashed material. This is new scenes from season 4.
The 10-episode season stars Taylor, along with Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley.
Season 4 will be on Netflix in its entirety beginning on September 10, which is almost here.
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.
