Longmire could run for 10 seasons on Netflix, according to exec producer John Coveny.
The serial-procedural is currently streaming its fourth season on the platform after Netflix literally rescued it from A&E’s cancellation ward.
The show’s stars have already signaled an alert on the importance of Longmire Season 5.
Now, speaking to Yahoo!, Coveny reveals that the story is not even at the half-way point, with discussions about a 10-season run already broached prior to the streaming company picking it up as an original series:
“When we pitched the series to Netflix, they talked about how long we want to keep the show going. Realistically, we have Seasons 8, 9 and 10 in our heads; it’s a rich world and we’re really just beginning to scratch the surface of it.”
