It has been about five years since the last season of Longmire premiered on Netflix. Even though the series ended on a conclusive note, some fans are still waiting for Longmire Season 7. But is the show really coming back? Let’s find out.
Longmire is an American crime drama series that debuted on the A&E network in 2012. The drama series revolves around Sheriff Walt Longmire, about a year after his wife’s sudden death. The show focuses on his life as a Sheriff while dealing with his grief.
Is Longmire Season 7 Coming?
The sixth season of Longmire premiered on Netflix on November 17, 2017. And unfortunately, we’d like to inform the fans that it was confirmed by the network that the sixth season was the last installment. And it is not coming back for Longmire Season 7.
In a statement, showrunners Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin, and John Coveny said, “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspire lasting memories. Most importantly, We’re committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty.” Therefore, the current word is that Longmire is not coming back.
About The Show!
At the beginning of the story, we see Walt Longmire as he tries to cope with the grief and isolation without his wife. Meanwhile, he tries to drown himself in work by focusing more on police work. As the story moves forward, Walt’s Henry becomes his partner. And together, they try to maintain law enforcement in the fictional Absaroka County in Wyoming.
However, things start to get complicated when some shocking truths about Walt’s wife’s death come to light. Even though Walt had the knowledge that his wife was murdered, he never shared this with his daughter Cady and others. But when the revelation surfaces, a lot of drama follows.
Meanwhile, the person who was suspected of the murder has also been killed. Despite Walt’s refusal to kill him, the evidence pointed to Henry’s Cheyenne friend. The mystery and drama surrounding Walt’s wife’s death intensified as the story progressed. And Walt was already dealing with a variety of issues in both his career and personal life.
What Happened In The Last Season?
Malachi was dead by the end, and Walt had his twelfth or thirteenth scar. Walt was clearly eager to make a change on his own terms, especially after his hundredth embarrassing conversation with Vic. The convoluted chats in automobiles were becoming old, and Vic eventually came out and stated she was sick of them. At this point, there wasn’t a single fan of the show who didn’t try to high-five their television screen.
Walt lost Lucien, and despite the passage of time, he is obviously not over the loss of his wife. Walt knew that he could only do this job for so long before his identity became too entwined with it. And he’d push away everyone he cared about.
Ultimately, a Longmire for Sheriff sign appears on the route entering the county, bringing the full series circle. Cady Longmire will now be the one to take up the role. The choice appears to be out of place. However, it relates to the series’ overall concept. Let’s see what Longmire Season 7 has to offer.
Longmire Season 7 Cast!
The cast of the drama series features Robert Taylor in the titular role of Sheriff Walt Longmire. Meanwhile, the series features Katee Sackhoff as Walt’s deputy, Victoria Moretti. Walt’s childhood friend and companion Henry Standing Bear is played by Lou Diamond Phillips. Furthermore, Cassidy Freeman appears as Walt’s daughter Cady Longmire.
The series also stars Bailey Chase in the role of Branch Connally, Adam Bartley as Archie Ferguson. If the series is recommissioned for Longmire Season 7, most of the main cast members are likely to return to their roles. Also, the next season may introduce us to some new characters returning in their roles.
