‘Longmire’ Team Talks Netflix Resurrection: “There Was So Much at Stake”.

Twelve minutes. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – When “Longmire” returns for its fourth season Sept. 10 on streaming service Netflix, the theme of second chances will be appropriately – if coincidentally — prominent.

“Never before had I wept in a meeting.” Such was Longmire executive producer Greer Shephard’s reaction when Netflix decided to move forward with season 4 of the series.Finally, Netflix has made the news official in regards to the future of ““: Come September 10, the entire ten-episode fourth season will be available to stream. We were surprised,” said executive producer Hunt Baldwin. “Needless to say we are thrilled that we got to move to Netflix and finish telling that story.” Star Robert Taylor may have been the most shocked by the news. “I thought it was a joke. The EPs discussed at TCA today their journey from A&E cancellation following their season 3 cliffhanger in late August 2014 to their Netflix season 4 resurrection scheduled to stream on Sept. 10. Executive producers Greer Shephard and Hunt Baldwin said that theme was already in the works before the show’s surprise cancellation at A&E. “Who are you as a person and is it defined by how you handle second chances,” Ms.

Based on the mystery novels of Craig Johnson, the contemporary crime drama stars Robert Taylor as Wyoming lawman Walt Longmire. “Longmire” was A&E’s most watched scripted show at the time of its cancellation about a year ago, but reportedly drew an older-skewing audience. A fan campaign to save the series preceded its pickup by Netflix, which will launch season four in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand simultaneously. As previously, reported season 4 promptly picks up with Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) learning who killed his wife and setting out to avenge her death.

The upcoming season, which explores second chances, picks up moments after the finale, in which Walt Longmire (Taylor) found out who was behind his wife’s murder. It was an appeal for life.” That appeal was soon granted, and the result is a fourth season that producers say feels more “cinematic” thanks to less time constraints and no commercial breaks. “They said, ‘Go make the same show you’re making.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, described the show’s fans as “hungry” and “passionate,” who without the service’s fourth-season pickup “wouldn’t get to watch the show because they were the wrong age” to fit in the most profitable advertising demographics. They are coming in at a time after we made it through most of the summer TV season, but also before the major networks start to air some of their heavy hitter shows. Shephard said. “Just because we can be more permissive and have the ability to have more vulgarity or graphicness, we did not want to alienate the incredible fan base we consider responsible for our survival.”

Given that filming has been over for a few weeks now, there is enough time for producers to push their publicity train and let long time fans, as well as potential new fans that the show is back and it’s going to be a great season. We just imagine that a big part of it is going to depend heavily on what the buzz is for the show after this season, and also what results Netflix sees on their end. Once you’ve vanquished that and that has sort of been your sole purpose in life, who are you,” said Baldwin, who also teased Henry’s “newfound freedom. … What does he do with it to validate that he’s been giving this second chance?” However, Henry will also have his hands full going up against Walt. “There’s a horrific loophole in that tribal police and tribal courts are not able to prosecute non-natives who commit crimes on a reservation,” said Shephard. “Those injustices and those discrepancies are the subject of several stories, and are going to put Walt and Henry in opposition.” That being said there was such an extensive campaign from fans all over the world to bring “Longmire” back for another season and here we are with another season because of all of that hard work and dedication.

Despite Longmire being A&E’s most-watched series attracting an average of 5.6M viewers in season 3, the cable network axed it, claiming the show wasn’t profitable because advertisers, who pay a premium to reach younger audiences, undervalue older-skewing shows like Longmire. It took 12 minutes between the cancellation of the show and him finding (Netflix head of original content) Cindy Holland and letting her know the fate of our show.

She invited us in to present season 4 to them.” “When I heard the news that they were cancelled, I couldn’t believe anybody could be that stupid!” blurted out actor Gerald McRaney who plays Barlow Connally, “but when I heard Netflix was picking it up, that made sense.” Longmire Season 4 will premiere on Thursday, September 10.
