‘Longmire’ Season 7 release date
The first three seasons of ‘Longmire’ were produced by A&E. The channel later announced that they would no longer produce ‘Longmire’. The crime drama series had a strong viewership. Hence, the reasons for cancellation are still not known to this day. After a while, Longmire was picked up by Netflix. The streaming giant produced season 4, 5, and 6. Longmire upgraded its quality and attracted a huge viewership too. Unfortunately, Netflix announced that the sixth season of Longmire would be its last. They further did not announce the reason behind its cancellation. Many believed that the show had covered most of the novel series.
Executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin, and John Coveny told Deadline, “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories. Most importantly, we are committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty”. Season 6 of ‘Longmire’ premiered on 17th November 2017, on Netflix.
Even though ‘Longmire’ was cancelled after season 6, we can expect it to return. Everything right now depends on Netflix. The streaming platform can bring it back through a reboot or spin-off series. Now that Cady is the new sheriff, it will be fun to see how she handles things around her.
