A&E NETWORK GRILLS UP SOME DRAMA THIS MEMORIAL DAY

WITH TWO HUGE SEASON PREMIERES

 

SEASON TWO OF THE NETWORK’S HIT SCRIPTED SERIES “LONGMIRE,”

FROM WARNER HORIZON TELEVISION, PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 27 AT 10 ET/PT FOLLOWING THE SEASON FOUR PREMIERE OF “The Glades,”

FROM FOX TELEVISION STUDIOS, AT 9 PM ET/PT

 

New York, NY – April 10, 2013 – A&E Network is scheduling in some summer drama this Memorial Day, premiering back-to-back new seasons of its popular scripted series “Longmire,” from Warner Horizon Television, and “The Glades,” from Fox Television Studios.  Season Two of the contemporary crime thriller “Longmire” premieres Monday, May 27th at 10 PM ET/PT immediately following the fourth season premiere of the hit drama “The Glades” at 9 PM ET/PT.  This year, crime doesn’t get a holiday.

 

Last season, the duo of “The Glades” and “Longmire” propelled A&E to become the #1 cable network in Total Viewers on Sunday nights from 9-11 PM.  “Longmire” became A&E’s #1 original drama of all time in Total Viewers. In its first season, the series averaged 4.0 million total viewers, making it the best freshman season in Total Viewers for any A&E series, scripted or non-fiction, in the network’s history.  Additionally, the most recent season of “The Glades” was the series’ strongest ever, averaging 4.1 million total viewers.

 

“Longmire,” based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson, returns for its second season with more murder, secrets and betrayals from Absaroka County, Wyoming. The new season finds reluctant hero Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) back in the saddle after coming to terms with the devastating loss of his wife and dedicated to serving his community.  But storm clouds are brewing... Walt’s reign as Sheriff hangs in the balance as he fights for re-election against rival, and his own deputy, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase).  Walt’s right hand deputy, Vic Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) is visited by the ghost of a past she’d rather forget.  Walt’s daughter Cady (Cassidy Freeman) searches for answers about her mother’s murder, while Walt’s possible connection to the death of his wife’s killer threatens to sweep his loyal friend Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips) into the mix.  As the open skies darken and the winds kick up, Walt and his deputies plunge head first into the storm… confronting the question: how will each react when it hits?

 

In the season premiere episode of “Longmire,” a prison transfer goes awry and Walt urgently pursues a serial killer and his fellow escapees, who have taken hostages, up a mountain.  Facing an impending storm with very limited resources, Walt’s mettle is put to the test and hypothermic hallucinations force him to face his past.

 

Season Four of “The Glades” is packed with even more mystery, intrigue and fun from Florida’s favorite homicide investigator – the disarmingly charming Detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore).   From haunted plantations to rum-soaked shot girls and even a zombie apocalypse, Longworth is once again solving murders that can only happen in the Sunshine State.   This season also promises more drama on the personal front for Longworth, Carlos (Carlos Gomez), Manus (Michelle Hurd) and Daniel (Jordan Wall) as friends and relatives from near and far arrive on the scene.   But the big question remains to be answered as Longworth waits for Callie (Kiele Sanchez) to accept his marriage proposal, or not.

 

In the season four premiere episode of “The Glades,” Longworth must delve into a 150-year-old ghost story to solve a murder when the dead body of an heiress is found in a haunted plantation house.

 

“Longmire” is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television.  Greer Shephard (“The Closer,” “Nip/Tuck”), Michael M. Robin (“The Closer,” “Nip/Tuck”), Hunt Baldwin (“The Closer,” “Trust Me”) and John Coveny (“The Closer,” “Trust Me”) serve as executive producers.

 

“The Glades” is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producers are Clifton Campbell (“White Collar,” “Profiler,” “21 Jump Street”) for Innuendo Productions, Inc. and Gary Randall (“Saving Grace”) for Grand Productions, Inc. The series is created by Clifton Campbell.

  • Raz

    Hope when they do the Longmire episodes they will show the more spiritual angles the books take.

  • Bill

    Can’t wait for the Glades

  • james

    I really enjoy both of these shows. Can’t wait

  • thesnowleopard

    Yay for summer shows!

  • Raymonde

    Very happy that Longmire and The Glades are back.

  • Joan Rose

    I am so glad The Glades is returning. I’d begun to think it was cancelled. I enjoy the show a lot and Matt Passmore is wonderful!

  • Nancy

    I was worried longmire had been cancelled. It is by far a cut above average.
    It has a fine cast, excellent dialogue and subject matter that ranges from family problems, undermining deputy, current youth problems such as bullying, American Indian issues and relationships with those off the “Rez”, a troubled past and everything in between. The friendship between Longmire and Henry is most interesting, often with different view points. I can’t wait for it to be back on.

  • Ralph

    Just wish these shows were on full time. Both are great!!!

  • Michael W. Hadley

    Could someone at A & E get the programming people to stop running show starts in the closing credits of the previous shows. I’m sure they think it’s cute but what it is, is irritating. It’s also a really cheap way to find another way to shorten program content. Shows used to be 48 minutes; now some clock out at 41 and change. Please respect your shows and don’t treat them like you’re running a sausage factory.
