Season 5 of Longmire picks up after the dramatic cliffhanger of season 4, where Walt Longmire (series star, Robert Taylor) and his girlfriend Dr. Donna Sue Monaghan (Ally Walker) are shot by an armed intruder in Walt’s house.

Season 5 finds Henry (Lou Diamond Phillips) at the cross hairs of two warring parties and his allegiance to one could have deadly consequences.

Longmire, the contemporary crime thriller set in Big Sky country, is based on the Walt Longmire mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson.
