In a surprise move, a popular cable drama series has been canceled.
“ ‘Longmire,’ A&E Network’s most-watched original drama series of all time, will be ending its run on the cable network after three seasons,” writes our good friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The article continues, “In a surprising move, the network has opted not to renew the series for a fourth season. I hear Warner Horizon, the studio behind Longmire, will be shopping it immediately.”
So why would A&E cancel such a popular show? Most notably, the series, a Western, averaged 6 million views in season two but, Andreeva writes, with a different lead-in this season, “Longmire’s” audience “has dipped in Season 3 to [an average of] 4.6 million viewers.”
