The Netflix series ‘Longmire’ has just announced, via its Facebook page, that it will return for Season 5 on Netflix, giving the series a second season since being cancelled by its original network, A&E, in 2014. Netflix picked up the show only a few months later, and the fourth season was made available on Netflix Instant on September 10, 2015.

‘Longmire’ isn’t the first show Netflix has rescued from cancellation, but it is the first drama to be renewed for a second season after joining the platform. The series is based on the “Walt Longmire Mysteries” series of novels, and follows an ageing Wyoming county sheriff who returns to the job after the death of his wife. Netflix hasn’t released any details about the fifth season yet, but check out the announcement above.
