Canceled Drama Series Not Dead Yet: Move to Netflix in the Works for Fan Favorite

Nov 14, 2014  •  Post A Comment

Netflix is reportedly in negotiations to revive a drama series that was recently canceled despite being a fan favorite. Nellie Andreeva reports on Deadline.com that “‘Longmire fans’ prayers may have been answered,” as Netflix is working on a deal to bring back the canceled A&E show for a fourth season.

A&E’s decision to cancel the show after three seasons “triggered one of the biggest outpourings of fan support, with reaction ranging from shock and disbelief to anger and a call to arms in a massive save-the-show campaign,” Andreeva writes.

The report notes: “Sources caution that negotiations between Netflix and ‘Longmire’ producer Warner Horizon have been tricky, and there is a chance that a final agreement may not be reached, though there is a will on both sides and insiders are hopeful. If a deal closes, Season 4 of ‘Longmire’ eyes a tentative March production start date.”

After the cancellation, Warner Horizon put together a pitch to sell the show to other outlets, with Amazon and Netflix identified as likely buyers. Because Netflix already has the rights to the previous seasons of “Longmire,” the streaming service has appeared all along to the the most logical home, the piece notes.



  1. What was A&E thinking… what else in the way of adult programming do they have right now? My wife and I are huge fans of both Longmire and Netflix! If you’re listening, Netflix, this would be n excellent add as a grownup drama with a kinder heart than “House.” It’d be nice to get more than six shows a season, too!

  2. Good for Netflix! This is an excellent show that had decent ratings. I am still not sure why A&E dropped it. It was the only time I ever watched that channel. Now it is one more channel I pay for that I never watch. If it wasn’t for sports, I would be done with traditional TV and only using Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and Xbox.

  3. This is a wonderful show I can’t believe you are taking it off the air but we will air crap like Keeping up the Nasty Ass Kardashians.

  4. This is a great show love to watch it. You will cancel something like this but leave Keeping up with The Kardasian’s crap.
