Fans have been patiently waiting for the official premiere of the “Longmire” Season 6. However, avid followers of the show got disappointed when the popular series failed to return to the small screen this month.

It was previously revealed that the upcoming sixth season is going to be the series’ last. Now, new reports are claiming that the much-anticipated return could happen in October 2017.

Will the series return next month?

CarterMatt shared that “Longmire” Season 6 is very likely to premiere in October after it failed to appear on Netflix’s returning shows in September.

Devoted viewers of the show were devastated after learning that they need to lengthen their patience anew.

The news outlet claimed that filming for the series’ last season wrapped months ago, so the announcement of the sixth season's official premiere date could happen anytime soon. Also, the DVD copy of its fifth season is hitting the stores later this month.

Speculations have it that people behind the popular mystery-drama series want its avid followers to catch up with Season 5 first before releasing the next installment. The Christian Post also claimed that the delay is actually an approach to build up the anticipation for the much-awaited return.

While these reports could possibly be true, it should be noted that Netflix has yet to comment or deny these rumors.

Therefore, fervent hangers-on should take these speculations lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

What to expect in the imminent sixth installment?

Meanwhile, actor Lou Diamond Phillips shared on social media that he will be sharing scenes with stars Zahn McClarnon (Mathias) and A. Martinez (Jacob Nighthorse) in “Longmire” Season 6.

Rumors have it that Lou’s character, Henry Standing Bear, will be dealing with these characters due to his connection with Malachi Strand, portrayed by Graham Greene, and his legal history as Hector.

Other theories suggest that the life of Walt Longmire is going to be in a serious danger. Fans cannot help but speculate that Robert Taylor’s character is going to face several quandaries in the upcoming season after director Adam Bluming shared a teaser that featured Walt’s shadow.

Walt Longmire and Victoria Moretti’s (Katee Sackhoff) wedding is also expected to take place in the imminent “Longmire” Season 6. However, hearsays suggest that their happy ever after will be short-lived for they will meet a tragic accident after exchanging their wedding vows.

Up until now, Netflix has not yet announced the official release date of “Longmire” Season 6. Stay tuned for more spoilers, news, and updates!
