Where Can You Watch the "Longmire" Television Series?

Seasons one through three of the "Longmire" television series are available for streaming online from Amazon, Netflix, Vudu and iTunes or for purchase as DVD box sets; however, season four is only available through Netflix, as of September 2015. The show's original network, A&E, cancelled it at the end of the third season, after which Netflix purchased the series to continue with a fourth season.

The modern western police drama is now part of the growing Netflix stable of original content. The series is based on the best-selling novels by Craig Johnson that detail the mysteries encountered by fictional sheriff Walt Longmire of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Season four begins where the cliff-hanging end to season three left off. The same cast of characters - including Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, Katie Sackhoff as Deputy Maretti and Lou Diamond Phillips as Henry Standing Bear - work together to serve up justice in the new west.

Despite being one of the network's most-watched shows with nearly 6 million weekly viewers, A&E cancelled "Longmire" due its primarily older audience. The network wanted to focus on shows that appealed to a younger audience, the demographic most appealing to advertisers. The large number of viewers interested Netflix since the service is subscription-based rather than advertisement-based.
