This Wyoming-set series about dedicated and unflappable sheriff Walt Longmire started out on A&E but was canceled after three seasons. Fans, known as the Longmire Posse, were in an uproar and took to social media to let everyone know. Eventually, Netflix picked Longmire up for another three seasons.
Based on a series of crime thriller novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire finds Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) trying to rebuild his life and career following the death of his wife. He hides his pain behind a brave face, unassuming grin and dry wit. With his deputy Victoria "Vic" Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) and his best friend Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips), the sheriff solves crimes in the fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming.
Watch: All six seasons of Longmire are on Netflix.
Fun fact: Robert Taylor, who plays Sheriff Longmire, is Australian.
In this short-lived Netflix original series, notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), an outcast herself, in the worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, New Mexico—a town governed mainly by women after a tragic mining accident. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the women band together to defend what's theirs from the murderous gang in a lawless Western frontier.
