  • The End

    Congrats Longmire, long may you live on A&E. Assuming the network doesn’t piss about with your schedule.

  • Chris

    Will Glades be renewed for another season?

  • The End


    Sure, other shows were renewed with less.

  • MB

    I watched them both.

  • Ted

    Awesome show.

  • SueP

    Enjoyed both shows all season. Looking forward to next year.

  • DonJ1973

    With the great ratings, will A&E order more than 10 episodes for season 2? They seem to have gone cheap with their scripted shows this year cutting Breakout Kings and The Glades to 10 episode seasons.

  • The End


    I think the pacing of Longmire would be better with 13 episodes personally.

  • Steve

    Longmire was surprisingly good. Robert Taylor just killed it as the lead. And loved Katee Sackhoff’s screaming moment in the high school cafeteria scene.

  • dee digrazia

  • Marie

    I love this show. Read everyone of Craig Johnson books and wish the series was longer..can’t wait until next year. DAMN GOOD CAST and GREAT WRITING..I love it!!

  • Barbara Schwarzkopf

    Glad to see Longmire is coming back. It’s a great series!

  • Paul

    A very good show….the writers could use some assistance from Craig Johnson (the author of the books the series is based on) to bring in more depth to the character relationships and the amusing uniqueness of people; however, that said, Robert Taylor is a “homerun” pick for Walt Longmire and brings a depth of character to that role that I have not seen on TV for years…..

  • Kim

    Love this show!! Makes me want to move out west. I’m going to start reading the books now that the season is over.

  • shirley

    i am 65 years old and my husband and i both loved the Longmire shows. We’re looking forward to another great season!

  • Rob

    Longmire is excellent. Hard to believe he’s an Aussie. Reminds me of westerns and the only thing missing is Walt riding up on a horse with a 6 gun on his hip. Too bad we have to wait until next summer for the next episodes.

  • Pat Scott

    we were all set to finally see Longmire and not only did it not record, it is no longer listed on Direct TV. What gives???

  • Rose

    Love Longmire…..live in Montana. Glad to see modern day cowboys and Indians where they are played as equals. Can’t wait to see how things play out about Walts wife’s death. Who don it……ummmm?

  • GregP

    I canceled my premium movie channels because there were some great shows on every evening. Longmire and The Glades, among others. Bring them all back asap.
