A&E has renewed Longmire for a second season. The network made the unsurprising decision to bring back the series a mere four weeks into the Western drama's inaugural summer run.
The renewal was all but assured after the show's strong start. The Longmire premiere drew 4.1 million total viewers and became the channel’s most-watched scripted series debut ever.
The Wyoming based mystery/drama/procedural stars Robert Taylor as the titular character, Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff as his deputy and Cassidy Freeman as HIS daughter.
Longmire airs Sundays at 10/9c; the Season 1 finale airs August 5.
