“Longmire” is back in the saddle.

The Netflix series is beginning production on its fifth season in northern New Mexico.

Principal photography will begin at the end of March and film through the end of June in Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Los Alamos (Valles Caldera), Española, Glorieta and Pecos, according to the New Mexico Film Office.

” ‘Longmire’ is more than just a great show, it truly showcases the incredible beauty of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico, and continues to help grow our reputation as one of the country’s leading film communities,” said Santa Fe Mayor Javier M. Gonzales. “We’re excited they are coming back and looking forward to seeing what happens next in the season.”

The film office said the production will employ about 150 New Mexico crew members and more than 1,000 New Mexico background talent.

Starring Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley, “Longmire” is based on the Walt Longmire mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson. The contemporary Western drama returns with the unflappable Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) unraveling the dark, mysterious secrets of Absaroka County, Wyo. The new season will stream this fall on Netflix.

“The city of Las Vegas is thrilled ‘Longmire’ will return to film its fifth season in our Historic Plaza and throughout the City. Cast and crew have become family to our community and are a welcome sight during production season,” said Las Vegas Mayor Alfonso E. Ortiz Jr. “We are pleased ‘Longmire’ continues to bring visual recognition to Las Vegas as a film location and its landscape and architectural versatility. We are grateful for the many positive economic impressions they leave on so many businesses throughout Las Vegas.”
