Longmire is gearing up for a pretty emotional fourth season that should also feature plenty of twists and turns. We’ve seen some pretty flashy footage from the Netflix drama so far, but today the subscription streaming service released the full trailer for Season 4. It’s pretty intense. Give it a watch, below.
The drama is apparent from the very beginning of the trailer. Walt’s been in kind of a rough position ever since the investigation surrounding his wife’s murder was reopened thanks to a series of events. This has apparently had a trickle-down effect on the rest of his staff, as Vic Moretti is now saying she is ready and willing to lie for Walt, provided he lets her in on all of the stuff he’s been keeping from her. Vic’s super loyal, but it’s clear that this show is going to move even further away from the case-of-the-week format than it already has when it returns to the schedule in favor of character drama, which is not a bad thing.
Vic’s not the only person who is super loyal to Walt. Henry also says he “has never been one to back down from a fight,” alluding to an ultimate standoff in Season 4. And, with the way things left off with Branch and his dad following a scuffle and a gunshot, there are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up within this new season. Branch does pop up in the trailer, so I’m guessing the scuffle turned out in his favor, if it went down violently, at all.
Luckily, the latter half of the trailer seems focused on redemption and a comeback, so it looks as if Walt might get the chance to come out on top, which is the Walt Longmire way.
Honestly, fans have been champing at the bit over this show for a while. Usually Longmire gets a summer premiere, but since the show has moved over to Netflix, we’re getting the episodes a bit later in the year. It’s a little annoying that Longmire wasn’t a summer show this season, but since the show was actually cancelled by A&E and went through an intense comeback campaign before ultimately getting picked up by the streaming service, I guess I should just be happy that we are getting new episodes of Longmire, at all.
Longmire is returning to the schedule in just a few short days, hitting Netflix on September 10. Ten episodes are being produced for Season 4, and if the show sticks with the same schedule as other originals, we should be getting new episodes starting at 12:01 a.m. PT.
