Longmire Season 6: Renewed for Final Season

Netflix’s revival season Longmire has been renewed for a sixth a final season but when will it come to Netflix and why will it be the last season of the show? We reveal all. 

Let’s look back at the history of the A&E show and how it came to be a Netflix Original in the first place. A&E has always been king at picking up shows that wouldn’t necessarily be good buys for large networks. Longmire was one of these shows but eventually, they failed to find a large audience for the show and was seemingly canceled after season 3.

Netflix as with shows like Arrested Development and Full House decided to step up and purchase the show but for an unknown amount of seasons. Fast forward to today, it turns out Netflix will be producing a sixth and final season which will have us saying farewell to Walt and the incredible story which Netflix enabled to continue being told.

Cindy Holland has spoken about the end of Longmire in saying “We are proud to be the home of the Longmire series, as so many viewers over the last few seasons have watched and been captivated by Walt’s journey, ” and the trio that makes the series have said “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories,”

When will Longmire Season 6 be on Netflix?

As Deadline first reported ‘It will premiere in 2017 in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.’ At What’s on Netflix, we’re not satisfied with that release date, so we’ll dig a bit further as to when we’ll be getting season 6 of Longmire on Netflix.

The past three years have brought us consistent release dates which mean we think that a fall 2017 release date is most likely specifically we think that September or October 2017 seems to be an ideal release date.

Why is Netflix canceling Longmire?

Given all of the news surrounding the show the cancellation of the show is far more upbeat than when it was announced A&E won’t be renewing the show. The shows story is clearly just drying up and running its course. Most of the fans have expressed this feeling online and the comments to the announcement of a final season has been resoundingly positive.
