Warner Horizon plans on shopping out the series…
TV Line reports that A&E has cancelled Longmire. The show recently completed its third season earlier this month. This is the second A&E drama to suffer a recent cancellation. The Glades was recently cut from the network after four seasons.
A&E released a statement on the cancellation, saying: "We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together."
Producer Warner Horizon is reportedly planning on shopping the series to other networks. The season three finale drew a reported audience of 3.7 million viewers and a 0.6 demo rating. This is down about 16 and 45 percent from the show's sophomore finale.
