‘Longmire’ Season 6: Renewal Confirmed, Casts React, Shooting Begins From March

Longmire Season 6: The fifth series of Longmire, an American crime drama television series that premieres on September 23, 2016. The show basically centres around the character Walt Longmire, a Wyoming county sheriff who returns to work after his wife’s death. Assisted by his friends and his daughter, Longmire investigates major crimes within his jurisdiction, while campaigning for re-election against one of his own deputies. If you are wondering what are the odds of Longmire Season 6 happening, we have rounded up all rumours and speculations regarding the matter.

Netflix’s Longmire to Shoot Season 6 in New Mexico

Update 4: As per Santa Fe New Mexican, Longmire season 6 production is scheduled to begin from March 2017. The previous five seasons had been filmed across Northern New Mexico. The 10 episodes will be shot in and around Santa Fe, Pecos, Los Alamos and Las Vegas, said Eric Witt, director of the Santa Fe Film Office. “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories,” executive producers Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny and Greer Shephard said in a statement. “Most importantly, we’re committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty.”

Looks like there time to kill before Longmire season 6 hits the screen, so meanwhile all 53 episodes are available to stream for Netflix subscribers.

Longmire Season 6 Cast Reaction:

Update 3: Longmire season 6 has been renewed and it’ll premiere in 2017. After hearing the news the cast reacted on Twitter warmly, but before we get into that here’s what star Robert Taylor had to say on his Facebook page:

“Hi all, well, I am stuck on a boat in the Hauraki Gulf, off New Zealand with a 60 year old, life long Cubs fan. We had a few beers last night………….then we had a few more. I’m so pleased that we will get the chance to give our show the ending it deserves. I love this show, I love everything about it, it will be tough to say goodbye. Thanks to all of the wonderful people who have been a part of this incredible journey. Also a huge thank you to our unbelievably loyal fans, you are amazing. Craig Johnson will never be done writing the brilliant books that started this whole thing off, so, I kinda like to think the old Sheriff will always be out there somewhere. If you happen to run into him somewhere, make sure you buy him a cold one.”

Update 2: The renewal of “Longmire” Season 6 is confirmed on Netflix as per HNGN. Interestingly, Carter Matt reports that the renewal reports are false. The publication thinks that the stories are “designed to generate false excitement and attention.” And indeed one look at the Longmire official twitter account, one can see no announcement of Longmire season 6 renewal has been made.

The Longmire social media stampede was held two days ago where fans were encouraged to express their thoughts on the shows and why they want Longmire Season 6 to happen. So are hoping we’d get a good new in the coming days.

According to Gamenguide, if Longmire season 6 happens then we’ll see the return of Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, Lou Diamond Phillips as Henry Standing Bea, and Katee Sackhoff as Vic Moretti.

Longmire Season 6 is coming soon.

Update 1: Apart from the fact that there is a serious doubt if the Longmire Season 6 will be renewed, there are several cliffhangers that need to need to be answered immediately. These cliffhangers are the major reason why fans want the show to come back. New rumours have emerged that suggest how the writer of the show may deal with the storylines. At the very beginning of the next season, Walt Longmire and Vic Moretti’s relationship could be explored. We already know the two had shared a romantic relationship in the past that couldn’t be resumed owing to Dr Donna. It’s time we saw something happening on that end. The Walt Longmire and Dr Donna’s storyline too deals with questions that can only be answered or have a closure in the next season. Speaking of Vic Moretti’s new love at the wake of Walt and Vic’s complicated relations would be a good storyline to explore. Also, let’s now forget Vic’s pregnancy.  There are reports that there’ll be updates over Vic’s continued romance along with Travis Murphy and Eamonn in the Longmire Season 6. And while we eagerly await the renewal of the next season, all we can do is speculate. As the storyline unfolds on “Longmire” Season 6, each of the characters will have their own way of dealing what were left in season 5. Walt will have to face and definitely get out of the lawsuit. Meanwhile, Vic will be carrying on with her pregnancy and enjoy the bliss of motherhood, a year later.

There are also a number of reports that “Longmire” Season 6 will experiment on a time jump to provide continuity of the scenes

Longmire Season 6: Is it happening?

We realise that its’s not one of the higher-rated shows on Netflix. But if season 5 was to be the last season then we’d have gotten a “final season” tag so that the story can have a proper send-off. But that did not happen so we are hoping that the show will be renewed for the next season. But of course, we don’t have any official confirmation. We are very likely not going to get a confirmation until we are done with season 5.

According to Breathecast, “Longmire” writer, Craig Johnson already confirmed the renewal of “Longmire” Season 6. However, it is still unconfirmed when “Longmire” Season 6 will premiere but sources claim that it will return in 2017. Before the confirmation reports, “Longmire” fans are busy on promoting the renewal of “Longmire” Season 6. In fact, they use the hashtag #RenewLongmireNetflix to let the world know that they are not ready to bid goodbye to “Longmire” yet.

Despite the lack of details about “Longmire” Season 6’s premiere date, confirming its renewal is already good news to everyone.

Longmire Season 6 Release Date

Since Netflix picked up the show back in 2014, Longmire has been premiering in September each year. Following the same pattern we are speculating the Longmire Season 6 release date will be in 2017 for sure.

Other than a trailer and some promotional photos, Longmire’s upcoming season has received the fraction of the promotion of some of Netflix’s other recent projects, like Luke Cage or Narcos. Watch the trailer here:

Like we said that it’s probably not one of the best shows Netflix has to offer. But over the years reception of the show has generally been positive. Nancy DeWolf Smith of The Wall Street Journal called the series “the best of two worlds: a modern crime drama with dry wit and sometimes heart-wrenching emotion that’s also got a glorious setting under the big sky of Wyoming.” She added: “If it weren’t for a few modern conveniences, like cellphones and trucks, it might as well be 1875, so rugged and unspoilt does the scenery look.” Longmire has received favourable reviews—receiving an overall score of 67 out of 100 across seventeen media reviews on Metacritic.

After we get through of all of season 5, we’ll be posting more on Longmire Season 6. Season 5 of Longmire was renewed for October 30, 2015 but was made available only a few days back on the 23rd of September, 2016 on Netflix. Longmire Season 6 will likely be released on Netflix in August or September 2017, or possibly October at the latest.  Longmire has a very loyal following, and the viewers turn up to watch the series on Netflix but whether the show will really return for a 6th season is what is left to be seen.

As of now, only the showrunners know for sure.

    Great show ! There may be higher rated shows, although Netflix doesn’t say how many people watch their shows, it is definitely one of the best shows on all of TV. Ratings don’t always equal quality

    I love the show but a little disappointed with this season. They could have skipped the Vic pregnancy story line and didn’t Walt have a girlfriend that he was sleeping with a couple of seasons ago?

    Season 6 is a MUST, Netflix! You saw the value in the characters, writing and audience appeal, despite A&E’s lack of vision therefore, providing the series and its fans with proper closure is taking the beautiful Absaroka County high road!

    Just finished watching all the season’s of Longmire. Love this show! However, Montana is known as Big Sky Country (just saying ).Too bad they can’t film at least part of the last season in Wyoming….. more authenticity and less southwest looking buildings,etc. I know, I know, it’s just a show.:)
