Longmireis sticking around.
A&E's modern-day Western, starring Robert Taylor, has been renewed for a second season, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Deadline.com first reported the news. The series debuted earlier this month to 4.1 million viewers to become the cable network's most-watched original series premiere ever. The series has since averaged 3.9 million viewers.
Longmire is about a recently widowed sheriff (Taylor) and his deputy, Victoria Moretti (Katee Sackhoff), as they navigate the varying degree of crimes — from the most mundane (shooting sheep) to the most gruesome (sex trafficking) — in a small town in Wyoming. Cassidy Freeman, Bailey Chase and Lou Diamond Phillips also star.
Longmire airs Sundays at 10/9c on A&E.
