‘Longmire’ to Return for Season 5 on Netflix

Longmire Netflix Season 5

Longmire” has been renewed for Season 5 by Netflix.

After being canceled by A&E, Netflix nabbed the Western crime drama for Season 4. The 10-episode run launched this past September on the streaming service. The series previously aired on A&E for three seasons.

The renewal announcement was made Friday on “Longmire’s” Facebook page with the message, “We’ve never been one to back down from a fight. Longmire will return to Netflix for Season 5.”

Created by Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny, “Longmire” stars Robert Taylor as the sheriff of a small town in Wyoming. Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley round out the cast. Baldwin and Coveny exec produce with Greer Shephard and Michael Robin.

This summer at the Television Critics Assn. press tour, Coveny expressed the “Longmire” team’s excitement, ahead of its fourth season premiere at its new home. “Netflix said, ‘We want human beings to watch this show — if it has heart and soul to it, we need that piece in the Netflix family.’”

Shepard added, “We’re mercifully with a wonderful company now that values viewers over demos and we’re benefiting from that.”

  12. wilford walker says:

  13. Faye O'Neal says:

    Love this series. I could binge watch it for days at the time.I hope Walt and Vic don’t get together. I liked Lizzy with him. She’s just what he needs.

  14. We’re really glad that Netflix picked up Longmire one of her favorites

  15. While I’m waiting for season 5 I’m watching the first 4 seasons on Netflix again. Thanks, Netflix.

  16. testingwle display name says:

    why do the episodes [at least s1-s3] seem to have been edited for commercial insertion, and all seem to be 45 mins long instead of an hour?

    • Eileen says:

      Because they are edited for commercials. The first 3 seasons of Longmire were on commercial TV network A&E. Season 4 & 5 are and will have longer episodes because there are no commercials.

  17. Brad Chapman says:

    Please bring back this awesome Western/drama, it’s a great series I purchased the first 3 seasons, I can’t get enuff.

  18. Lessa walker says:

    Love the show the scenery is great the actor’s are great I hope it runs for awhile you just don’t get good shows on tv lately.

  19. Gus Gallegos says:

    Wife and I just binged on all 4 seasons and I am Jonesing BAD!

  20. John says:

    One of the few reasons I will pat Netflix’s 25% price increase…


    This is one of the best shows out there i will keep watching Netflix for sure,wish they could put more shows like Longmire on tv,Love the characters and the story line just a great show.

  22. Alex says:

    The biggest reason this show is great is because the characters are BELiEVABLE! And, the producers aren’t afraid to kill a few people off, as necessary. Please, if possible, include as much Indian culture as practical, but keep it from being exploited. I have deep respect for the Indian Nation. Please don’t cheapen it. I feel embarrassed for saying that, because I believe that wouldn’t do it anyway. Thank you.

  23. Lisa says:

    Thanks Netflix for a fifth season of Longmire! Season 4 was the reason I re-subscribed. It’s an excellant show with complex characters and relevant story lines. We’re looking forward to more!

    • william moran says:

      get a life Alex for they have a lot of Indian culture in it and what the hell u talking about dont cheapen it , u sound like a racist to be and most likely will vote for a criminal like hillary clinton

  24. B&D says:

    WHEN will season 5 be available to watch on Netflix? I never seem to be able to find that information!

  25. Tamara says:

    Love this series! The best show in forever, The characters are great,

  26. My husband and I love the show Longmire. Can’t wait for season 5! Thanks, Netflix!

  27. Aleta Pitstock says:

    So excited that Season 5 will soon be here, albeit not soon enough and then far too soon it will be over. I am in Australia and found this show on Netflix and cannot get enough of it. My absolute favourite TV show, such that it trumped my other favourite of NCIS, which is pretty damn hard to do.

  28. Janice Baron says:

    So looking forward to 5th (and hope many more) season of Longmire on Netflix. Love to watch this show over and over.

  29. Bill Benedict says:

  45. Haneka says:

    Aah! Yes! Great news for Netflix picking up Longmire, I totally agree with Gynean Gentry: “one of the most honestly portrayed series”

  46. Gynean Gentry says:

    I subscribed to Netflix because they picked up the best show, Longmire. I do love Netflix and all they offer but I am very excited to see new season of my favorite show, Longmire. One of the most honestly portrayed series with the best acting on television. Thank you, Netflix.

  47. Tom hammond says:

    can not imagine anyone would want to do away with a show like longmire,one of the best ,if not the best shows ever on tv. good job netflix.

  48. Marta Alvarez says:

    Love love love longmire bring it back its a great show ❤️❤️❤️

  49. Pam says:

    Just finished binging season 4 & am overjoyed to find a season 5 coming after that colossal cliff hanger! Sheesh! Who broke down the door?!! Glad to see Walt & Malachi working together, and the complexity of who has jurisdiction where.

  50. Andy Longo says:

    A&E can keep their “staged” Storage Wars show. Longmire has all the makings (proved) for a hit program. Suspense, drama, western themed, romance, character twists and more!!!! No reason this can’t be a long running program as long as the writers, actors and crew stay true to the formula. Thanks Netflix!!!!
