old worlds | old wounds

We love our Westerns at wonder | wander | world

Just like the author of Longmirewe are carried along on a lonely pilgrimage into the heart of nature and rawness of life - giving us the space to imagine the world this fictional hero inhabits.

Set in Big Sky country, this thriller TV show is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson.

Following the cancellation by A&E, Longmire producer Warner Horizon launched efforts to find a new home for the series. It put together a detailed pitch highlighting the show’s performance and fan following, as well as a road map for Season 4.

Despite its large audience, A&E insiders argued that the show was not profitable because advertisers, who pay a premium to reach younger audiences, undervalue older-skewing shows like Longmire.

Lucky for us that’s not an issue for subscription-based services like Netflix.
