‘Longmire’ is an American crime drama television series which first aired in 2012 on A&E networks. However, it currently airs on Netflix. It is based on Craig Allen Johnson’s ‘Walt Longmire Mystery’ best-selling series of novels. The story revolves around the investigations and adventures of Sheriff Walt Longmire. The series was a huge success, but after the third season, ‘Longmire’ got canceled in 2014. Despite the largest save-the-show campaigns ever, A&E didn’t revive ‘Longmire’.
Nevertheless, the fans’ voices were heard by Netflix, which acquired rights to it. Hence, only a year after that, we saw three more seasons, seasons 4, 5, and 6, in 2015, 2016, and 2017 respectively. Hence, if you are wondering whether there will be a season 7, you are in the right place. Here is everything we know about ‘Longmire’ season 7.
