Longmire Season 6 Premiere Date Finally Announced With Badass New Trailer

Fans of Longmire got some good news and some bad news back in 2016. The show scored a renewal for a sixth season, but the renewal came with the announcement that the sixth season would be the final season. Only ten episodes are left in the whole series, and fans have had to spend the last several months wondering when they would hit Netflix. Now, Netflix has released a trailer for the next (and last) batch of episodes, and it reveals just when we can expect the show back. Take a look at the trailer for Longmire Season 6!

Season 6 of Longmire will premiere on Friday, November 17 on Netflix. While that's not exactly this weekend, premiere dates can sometimes be announced months and months ahead of time. Fans of Stranger Things got the announcement of a Halloween premiere for Season 2 way back on Super Bowl Sunday in February, although the date was later changed to four days earlier. Longmire fans have only a little over a month to have to wait until the new episodes are available.

The footage of the trailer indicates that the final season will be as intense as ever. Walt is evidently considering leaving his job as sheriff of Absaroka County, although Cady doesn't want him to give up his badge on any terms other than his own. At the very least, it looks like Walt won't be going anywhere until he finds and saves Henry, who was in a very bad place as of the end of Season 5. Walt and Co. will have to hurry to get to him if they want to actually save him. If he's gone and out in the elements for too long, there might not be much of him left, physically or mentally.

Vic has some difficulty in her life as well, as she apparently is continuing to conceal her pregnancy from Walt, claiming that it's "none of his business." The trailer proves that she's not taking it easy in Season 6, which could mean her pregnancy will have complications. She's clearly not going to abandon Walt; the question is how he will react when he inevitably learns that she has a bun in the oven. We'll have to wait and see.

The sixth and finale season of Longmire will debut on Netflix on Friday, November 17 at 12:01 a.m. PT for all subscribers. Be sure to check it out to find out how the stories of Walt, Vic, Henry, and all the others come to an end, as we can be sure that there's no last-minute save for the series this time around.
