The Season 3 DVD package for Longmire has now been released (March 3rd). Set in present-day Wyoming, Longmire is a contemporary Western mystery series that first debuted in 2012 on A&E. That network decided to remove Longmire from its line-up in August of 2014 but the popular show has been picked up by Netflix for a fourth season.
Based on Craig Johnson’s novel series of the same name, Longmire centers upon Sheriff Walt Longmire, played by Robert Taylor. With a strong ensemble cast that includes Lou Diamond Phillips, Katee Sackhoff, Bailey Chase, Adam Bartley, and Cassidy Freeman, the show often simultaneously explores a given local mystery within the framework of a larger issue. Such issues have included the use fracking to exploit resources, Indigenous rights, and rural life in the 21st century American West.
Longmire – The Complete Third Season (2015) is available in both DVD (2 discs) and Blu-ray (3 discs) format. The total running time of both formats is 440 minutes and the collection includes a documentary featurette entitled The Ghost in the Storm.
Netflix has ordered 10 new episodes for a Season 4 debut of Longmire later in 2015 – filming of the new season is expected to start later this month. The show averaged some 5.6 million viewers per episode in its third season. Westernsreboot.com has reviewed a number of previous episodes, which can be found via this site’s search function – type Longmire – or under the category of TV.
