Sun sets on greatest TV western crime drama

Longmire - The final season

It is with a sad heart I watched the last of Walt Longmire the other night.

The tough-as-nails modern cowboy, portrayed by Robert Taylor, rode off his land in northern Wyoming to search for treasure at the end of the very last episode.

Longmire is an American modern Western crime drama television series, developed by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin, is based on the Walt Longmire Mysteries series of novels by the best-selling author Craig Johnson.

Walt is the sheriff of Wyoming's fictional Absaroka County. Buffalo, in Johnson County, in northeast Wyoming. He has a unique staff "The Ferg" (Adam Bartley) and Victoria "Vic" Moretti (Katee Sackhoff), a transplanted Philadelphia homicide detective, who arrived in Wyoming six months prior and works as one of Walt's deputies.

His best friend is Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips), a Cheyenne man, who provides insight to and sometimes aids in dealing with the tribal police.

And there’s Walt’s daughter Cady (Cassidy Freeman) who is concerned that her father has been stuck since the death of her mother.

If you’ve missed Longmire, start binge watching now.
