ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Cast and crews have been in production up at Garson Studios in Santa Fe since late this winter working on the season 3 of “Longmire.”
The acclaimed TV series based on the Western mystery novels by Craig Johnson will be back on air at A&E on June 2.
Robert Taylor is back Sheriff Walt Longmire and will be joined by the cast, which includes Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Katee Sackhoff, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley.
According to a release from A&E, Longmire will be facing some serious challenges during this 10-episode cycle:
“In season three of “Longmire,” Walt finds himself reeling from a series of devastating traumas. His best friend, Henry Standing Bear (Phillips), is going to prison on murder charges. Deputy Branch Connally (Chase) has been shot by a mysterious “white warrior,” and Vic Moretti (Sackhoff) is unsure if she has shaken a stalker from her past.
Walt is forced to shoulder all of these burdens and try to find a way to set the world right again, but one person knows he can’t do this alone – his daughter, Cady (Freeman). She will fight in court to try and clear Henry’s name while Walt continues to unravel the dark, mysterious secrets of Absaroka County. The deeper Walt digs into all these mysteries, the closer he’ll get to uncovering the real bloody hand behind his wife’s murder.
In the season three premiere, Walt deals with the aftermath of Henry’s arrest and Branch’s shooting. The search for the shooter, however, is complicated by Branch’s insistence that it was someone known to be already dead.”
The show draws more than four million viewers for A&E and is one of the most watched scripted series for the network.
