Sheriff Longmire is staying in business a little while longer.
Netflix, which acquired “Longmire” from A&E after airing there for three seasons, has renewed the neo-western drama for a sixth and final season.
The new season will consist of 10 episodes, and will premiere some time next year.
“We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories. Most importantly, we’re committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty,” said executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny in a statement.
“We are proud to be the home of the ‘Longmire’ series, as so many viewers over the last few seasons have watched and been captivated by Walt’s journey. There has been no better team to work with on this show than Greer, Hunt and John, and their tremendous cast and crew, and we have every confidence that they will have a satisfying conclusion to this revered series. We are grateful to them and our friends at Warner Bros, who have been tremendous partners,” added Cindy Holland, Netflix VP of original content.
