Netflix has renewed "Longmire" for a final season, and the series has already started filming for Season 6 in New Mexico. No teaser has been released yet, but the cast has been generous enough to update fans on social media, and about four days ago, Adam Bartley shared a group photo, which is fun to look at, but heartbreaking as well, because this might be the last group shot.
Surprisingly, though, when the cancellation was announced, Netflix did not give a reason as to why they won't renew the series for a Season 7 anymore. With some of their shows, they did disclose the reason, but for this one, nothing. Some critics think that it could be the decreasing number of viewers, Cartermatt reported.
The upcoming season may show Joel McKinnon Miller. The actor, who is known for his role in "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," posted a picture of him and Katee Sackhoff on Twitter with the caption: "Spent the morning working with @kateesackhoff terrific actress, lovely person #Longmire."

What's notable is that Miller looks like he is someone who lives in Absaroka County, Wyoming, while Sackhoff is in full costume. His role in "Longmire" Season 6 is not yet confirmed, and it's not known, too, if he will have a recurring appearance in Season 6.
Meanwhile, based on what executive producer of the series Hunt Baldwin has hinted, the upcoming season will show Walt and Vic's romance. Hunt teased that there is a possibility that the two are going to end up together at the end of the day.
Fans have been waiting for this to happen, too, and we all got excited when Vic was ready to make her feelings known in Season 4. However, Walt's lovelife at that time was a bit complicated, because he was still with Donna Sue.
The final season is expected to premiere in September, just the like the previous seasons. "Longmire" Season 6 will have ten episodes, with TJ Scott directing the first episode, and Lou Diamond Phillips will helm the second.
