The fourth TV season of “Longmire” will premiere on Sept. 10, 2015. All 10 episodes will stream online at “Netflix.” The modern western is set at Absaroka county, Wyoming but has been filmed in Santa Fe, NM in the last four years. Walt Longmire is sheriff of Absaroka which borders near the Cheyenne Indian reservation. He solves crime on & off that reservation.
The sneak peak trailer of season four has been released by Netlfix in conjunction with the Fall TV premiere. “Longmire” was cancelled by the A&E cable TV network after three seasons. Fans were outraged & a strong internet campaign began. Netlfix producers soon picked up the fourth TV season.
The trailer gives us Walt pulling a shotgun on a small plane approaching him. That plane carries Ben Nighthorse who was behind the murder of Walt’s wife Martha in Denver, CO. Henry Standing Bear intervenes before the plane lands. It has been a long three years for Walt & Henry. They both had gone to Denver after Martha was murdered. Henry went to try & protect Walt. He even returned to Absaroka with evidence connecting Walt to the man who killed Martha. Henry was arrested for the murder of the drug addict who killed Martha.
Ben Nighthorse was hired by a local politician named Barlow Conally to kill Martha. Ben in return hired a drug addict to kill Martha. He also hired David Ridges to cover up the murder with bad Cheyenne Indian medicine. Barlow’s son Branch began his own investigation on the hit & run of Walt’s daughter Cady. He found that David was behind it who then cursed Branch with bad medicine which messed him up on a spiritual level.
In the season 3 cliff hanger episode in 2014. Branch found out that his dad hired Ben to have Martha killed. He confronts Barlow while skeet shooting & a deadly gunshot goes off. Walt hears that gunshot after he spread his wife’s ashes in a prairie field. He also found out who hired the drug addict to kill his wife which of course was Ben.
