The long-running American crime drama TV series, Longmire, has confirmed a sixth installment. This is an announcement made by none other than the brainchild of the story, writer Craig Johnson and one of the show’s main cast, Robert Taylor.
Contrary to rumors of cancellation, the two assured that the fans of the show will get a glimpse of the sixth installment come 2017.
According to Chattsportsnet, Longmire Season 6 will pick things up from last season’s finale wherein Sheriff Walt (Taylor) and Dr. Donna (Ally Walkier) found themselves in big trouble caused by an unknown assailant. This may have caused a stir on the fans’ understanding of the show’s fate.
With the show’s confirmation for a sixth season, fans can expect that Longmire Season 6 will carry on the crime-solving exploits of Walt Longmire, accompanied by his daughter and friends, in the fictional county of Absaroka in Wyoming, as reported by Game N Guide.
Netflix has been producing great shows lately and although Longmire has not been very steady when it comes to ratings, it has already gathered a steady fan-base and garnered positive reviews from reputable critics.
“The best of two worlds: a modern crime drama with wit and sometimes heart-wrenching emotion that’s also got a glorious setting under the big sky of Wyoming,” Nancy DeWolf Smith, The Wall Street Journal, reviewed. “If it weren’t for a few modern conveniences, like cellphones and trucks, it might as well be 1875, so rugged and unspoilt does the scenery look.”
Longmire is a show that had been picked up by Netflix in 2014 from A&E after four seasons from the latter network. The show is based on Johnson’s series of books entitled, Walt Longmire Mysteries.
