'Longmire' Costar Lou Diamond Phillips Teases Season 4 Renewal?

Loud Diamond Phillips is telling 'Longmire' fans to keep their season 4 hopes alive, as other networks have reportedly shown an interest in picking up the series.

Longmire Season 4 Renewal soon?

Nowadays, just because a network cancels a series, that doesn't mean the show's run is over and done with - western crime/drama Longmire being the latest example. The show was axed by A&E back in August, but has since been eyed for a pickup by such streaming outlets as Netflix and Amazon. Those aren't the only parties interested in airing Longmire season 4 either, according to the latest reports on the matter.

Longmire, created by Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny (based on Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire Mysteries novels), earned a very loyal following and was A&E's most-viewed drama series during its three seasons run on the network. However, it's believed that A&E Network not owning all rights to the Longmire TV show (seeing as Warner Horizon Television holds the licensing fees) contributed to the former's decision to cancel the series, despite its critical and ratings success.

Lou Diamond Phillips, who plays Henry Standing Bear on the Longmire series, has been keeping the faith alive for the show's fourth season on Twitter, by promoting the hashtags #moreLongmire and #LongLiveLongmire. Indeed, as recently as Sunday, Phillips welcomes his new Twitter followers and teased that a pickup announcement (or some other good news) could be right around the corner for the show.
