Season Two of the critically-praised contemporary Western mystery series Longmire premieres tonight – May 27th. Episode 1 of the season debuts at 10 pm/9pm (EST/CST) on A&E.
The series – which holds the distinction of having been A&E’s highest original series premiere to date – is based upon the Craig Johnson novel series of the same name. Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) is a present-day widowed sheriff in the fictional Wyoming county of Absaroka. Novelist Johnson is himself a former law enforcement officer.
A strong ensemble cast includes Lou Diamond Phillips as Longmire’s best friend, a Cheyenne named Henry Standing Bear, and actors Katee Sackhoff, Bailey Chase and Adam Bartley as Longmire’s deputies. Cassidy Freeman plays Cady, Longmire’s daughter, and Zahn McClarnon is Officer Mathias, chief of the tribal police for the local Cheyenne reservation.
A moody and dark tone has been struck in the promotional material for Season Two of the Western crime series as, pardon the pun, evidenced in the following promo-clip. The clip makes use of the track “Short Change Hero” by the group The Heavy:
In the first episode of Season Two, “Unquiet Mind”, Longmire pursues escapees from a prison transfer into the Wyoming mountains. Further official information about the series can be found at this link: Longmire
