Having been saved by Netflix, Longmire Season 4 streams from September 10, but attention has already turned to Season 5, with co-stars Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips making no bones about the fact that renewal is absolutely necessary.
Speaking to Collider, the pair confirm that Season 4 is not about providing closure to the series, rather ratcheting the story up – with a fifth season very much on the agenda:
Will we feel a real sense of closure, by the end of this season?
PHILLIPS: Oh, hell no! We all need a job in Season 5. We’re not closing anything.
ROBERT TAYLOR: There are some very dramatic developments in Season 4. If something is resolved, perhaps the manner that it’s resolved might blow something else apart. There’s a lot of big stuff going on. It’s very hard to talk about it without giving anything away, but there’s a lot of stuff going on. All will be explained pretty quickly.
