As filming for "Longmire" season 6 nears, a new report has claimed that the new season will only feature 10 episodes. Netflix has yet to address the reports.
The latest rumors surrounding "Longmire" season 6 suggest that there will only be 10 episodes in the upcoming installment. This is not good news for fans who have been waiting for the series to return. This will be the final season and viewers are expecting more from the Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) starrer.
It is also expected that the new season will start airing sometime toward the end of 2017. Unfortunately, Netflix has not yet been given a premiere date for the series. This has led some fans to worry about the fate of the finale.
Filming is set to kick off on March 22. Actress Katee Sackhoff, who plays Vic in the series, revealed this bit of news on social media. It is expected that Sackhoff, Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips will be present on the first day.
"Longmire" executive producers Hunt Baldwin, Greer Shephard and John Coveny thanked the streaming giant for giving the show another chance. The series was originally airing on A&E but was axed. Netflix picked up the story and renewed it until season 6.
Meanwhile, fans are still expecting Vic and Walt to see some progress in their romantic storyline. In the previous installments, Vic and Walt appeared to be moving forward. However, Walt later got romantically involved with Donna (Ally Walker). This led fans to believe that a Walt-Vic romance is no longer possible.
However, the latest spoilers for "Longmire" season 6 suggest that there is still a chance for the pair to become a full-blown couple before the series ends. This is not impossible since the Craig Johnson books seem to imply that there will be a romantic link in the end. Will it finally happen in the finale?
"Longmire" season 6 has yet to receive an official premiere date from Netflix.
