A&E's hit crime drama Longmire was cancelled after a successful Season 3 much to the disappointment of the show's numerous fans.

However, the hope of a Season 4 still remains as the show creators are searching for another network to accommodate the next season.

"We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together," the A&E said in a statement via TV Line.

However, the website also reported that Warner Horizon, the producer of the mystery drama is looking for another network and if everything goes well the series may return during mid-2015.

Meanwhile, the lead actor of the show Lou Diamond Phillips, who plays the character of Henry, thanked the fans in a series of tweets giving rise to hopes that the series would return soon on some other network.

The show was the second most watched series after the Duck Dynasty in terms of viewership and Cartermatt reports that Netflix may be the best suitable option for it to run.

The website also reported that it takes time for a network to house a new series by adjusting the time slots of other shows on their channel.

So, fans can rest assured that there are possibilites of the show returning to the small screen some time soon.
