Back toward the end of August, 'Longmire' executive producer John Coveny capped off the Wyoming-set lawman drama's second season with news that a third would soon be on the way, though A&E curiously denounced the revelation as premature. Now, three months later, we can officially confirm Sheriff 'Longmire' will return for season 3 in 2014!
Though perhaps without the ratings or critical attention of original series successor 'Bates Motel,' A&E's 'Longmire' has continued to perform for the network, recently wrapping up its sophomore season. Cast and crew have reason to cautiously celebrate today, as 'Longmire''s executive producer has announced that the Wyoming-set sheriff drama will return for a third season next year, though A&E isn't trumpeting the renewal just yet.
It's been a good couple of days to be on cable. Earlier today, both TNT's 'Dallas' reboot and 'Rizzoli & Isles were renewed for additional seasons, as well did last night's 'Anger Management' make for FX's highest ratings yet, bringing up 'Louie' and 'Wilfred' in the process. A&E moves further into the realm of original programming as well, now that original drama 'Longmire' will return for a second season.
Katee Sackhoff has floated around the galaxy a bit in the years since 'Battlestar Galactica' famously ended. After a few short-lived stints on NBC series 'The Bionic Woman,' FOX's '24,' 'CSI,' and the un-picked up Dick Wolf drama 'Lost & Found,' the former Kara Thrace has finally come back down to Earth...for now.
Sackhoff currently stars as Detective Victoria "Vic" Moretti of A&E's new Wyoming procedural drama 'Longmire,' which premiered last night, and follows the Craig Johnson novels of the same name. Sackhoff considers Vic to be one of the first "normal" characters she's ever played, but insists on the same brand of feminine strength she brings to all her roles, science-fiction and the more grounded.
We recently had a chance to sit down with the lovely Katee Sackhoff, not only to discuss her character on the excellent new drama 'Longmire,' but also her eventual turn in the upcoming high-concept 'The Chronicles of Riddick' sequel, dream projects past and present, and believe it or not, when you might see her on a stripper pole!
Oh yes, fellas. It's happening.
