The third season of A&E’s Longmire will premiere on Monday June 2nd at 10/9c, the network announced today.
Based on the series of novels written by Craig Johnson and developed for television by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin, Longmire follows Walt Longmire, the Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Longmire is a widower who, following his wife’s death, lost interest in his job as Sheriff. But with the help of one of his deputies he re-commits to his job and decides to run for re-election, only to find that one of his own men is running against him. The drama series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and stars Robert Taylor (The Matrix), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Lou Diamond Phillips (Stargate: Universe), Bailey Chase (Damages), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) and newcomer Adam Bartley.
In the show’s third season, Walt finds himself reeling from a series of devastating traumas. His best friend, Henry Standing Bear, is going to prison on murder charges. Deputy Branch Connally has been shot by a mysterious “white warrior,” and Vic Moretti 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. 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.
