A&E Renews Western 'Longmire' for Second Season
The Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff starrer opened strong out of the gate and will return for an additional season.
A&E is saddling up for more Longmire.
The cable network has given renewal orders to the Western drama starring Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The Wyoming-set drama marks the third series renewal for studio Warner Horizon Television on Friday alone, following TNT's Rizzoli & Isles and Dallas.
Created by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin and based on the book by Craig Johnson, the drama that marked Battlestar Galactica alum Sackhoff's return to series TV opened well out of the gate four weeks ago.
The premiere's 4.1 million total viewers ranks as A&E's most-watched scripted series debut ever and the highest-rated new cable scripted hourlong drama of the year in viewers and adults 25-54. Longmire's most recent outing drew 3.8 million total viewers.
Longmire airs at 10 p.m. Sundays on A&E.
