An extended preview has now been released for Season Two of A&E’s critically-acclaimed Western mystery series Longmire. The show, set in the present, is based upon the Craig Johnson novel series of the same name – Johnson himself is a former law enforcement officer. Starring Robert Taylor as the title character, the second season of Longmire will debut on Monday, May 27th at 10pm/9pm (EST/CST).
Walt Longmire is a widowed sheriff in the fictional Absaroka County of Wyoming. Lou Diamond Phillips plays Longmire’s closest friend, a Cheyenne named Henry Standing Bear. Longmire features a strong ensemble cast that includes Katee Sackhoff, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman, Zahn McClarnon and Adam Bartley. The series has been A&E’s highest original series premiere to date – 4.1 million viewers tuned in for the first episode in 2012.
In the first episode of Season Two, Walt Longmire must pursue escapees from a prison transfer into the Wyoming mountains. As a lead-up to the Season 2 premiere on May 27th, A&E will air all 10 episodes of Season 1 back-to-back on Saturday, May 25th from 2pm to midnight (EST).
