On the suspicious side, I’m hoping for a turn toward this becoming nothing but a major publicity stunt. Stunt or not, it’s time for a public outcry that the show come back in some way, shape or form. You can’t just let the series die a lonely, back country death.
As for the possible hit to New Mexico television production, take heart in knowing that television productions are alive & well in the state. In addition to the CW series, The Messengers, WGN’s Manhattan and the return of NBC’s, The Night Shift, James McGill is hard at work in the #BreakingBad prequel, Better Call Saul. And at least one (television series pilot) is rumored to be gearing up to shoot right here in the Q, while the relocated production of USA Network’s, Dig is set to begin filming within weeks.
B.T.dubs, this is not the first kink Longmire the series has encountered…it wasn’t an easy row to hoe to get to production rolling in the first place, as its home setting, Wyoming, proved to be less film friendly than New Mexico. So, here’s to finding a more Longmire friendly network for the beloved NM series.

In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so
devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive
in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the
Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills,
training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a
rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of
the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their
self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey
that challenges his unorthodox parenting.
