Basic info and cast
Longmire is a critically acclaimed and award-winning American action, Western and crime drama TV show that is currently available exclusively on the on-demand online streaming service Netflix in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The hit drama series was adopted for the small screen by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin based on the book series “Walt Longmire Mysteries” written by Craig Johnson. A co-production between Two Boomerang and The Shephard & Robin Company, the crime drama show was first released in the US on the A&E channel on June 3, 2012, where it ran for three years before getting canceled. To the immense delight of the fans, the series was resurrected by Netflix in 2014.
A 10-episode season 4 of Longmire was released on Netflix in its entirety on Thursday, September 10, 2015. The story picks up right after the events of the season 3 final episode when Walt Longmire finds out who killed his wife and sets out to find the killer. As you know, Netflix does not publicly release its ratings, so it is hard to judge how popular season 4 of the show is. In any case, most critics agree that the latest chapter of the show has been its best yet.
