Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips have confirmed plans for Longmire Season 5.
The serial-procedural completes its transition from A&E to Netflix on September 10 with the release of the 10-episode fourth season – however, it’s by no means the final season in the series, if Taylor and Phillips get their wish.
Speaking to Collider, the duo made it clear that not only is Season 5 a possibility, but a necessity:
Phillips: Oh, hell no [there wont be a sense of closure by the end of Season 4]! We all need a job in Season 5. We’re not closing anything.
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.
