Netflix's Longmire officially completed the first week of production for its fourth season on Friday.
The cast and crew were excited to be back in Santa Fe, N.M. and now that they've finished a week of filming they are beginning to get back into the swing of things. Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who plays Henry on the series, boasted on Twitter Saturday that his costars continue to "astound" him and that fans are in for one intense "ride" this season.

The start of production this month has been a welcome sight to many of the show's fans. In 2014 A&E surprised viewers when it cancelled Longmire after the end of its third season. At the time, the popular crime drama had been the network's highest-rated scripted series and second-highest rated series total behind the reality show Duck Dynasty.
Fans immediately flocked to the show's defense, setting up petitions and social media campaigns with the hope of reviving the program on a new network. In November their prayers were answered when Netflix stepped in and picked up the series for a new season.
Production began earlier this month and will continue in New Mexico and Nevada through the summer.
Longmire will return for a fourth season on Netflix sometime this fall.
