"Longmire" Season 5 cancellation rumors are currently making rounds online, which made a lot of fans nervous about the future of the Netflix drama. In a recent statement from Lou Diamond Phillips, the actor addressed rumors that the show is coming to an end after Season 5. Is the show canceled or renewed?
"Longmire" Season 5 is rumored to serve as the series finale on Netflix. Various reports claim that the crime drama may be ending after five seasons on TV because of its ratings.
Fans began to express their worries and concerns over the future of "Longmire," especially because the show has already gone through a previous cancellation when it aired on A&E. However, if most fans can recall, A&E canceled the series after Season 3 despite the high ratings because the audience was not their target market.
Netflix took the opportunity to attract the older audience of "Longmire" and picked up the series for Season 4 in order to gain more subscriptions from this particular age range. There also appears to be no basis for the claims that the show would be ending after Season 5 since the cancellation would have to officially come from the network itself.
However, actor Lou Diamond Phillips was kind enough to address the "Longmire" Season 5 cancellation rumors on his Twitter account. According to the actor, the show is definitely not ending after Season 5.
