With some "potential" good news coming up soon, the A&E's cancelled drama Longmire might not stay cancelled for long.
Star Lou Diamond Phillips (Henry) suggested on Twitter Sunday that some good news could be on the way as he welcomed new followers to "the fold."

Longmire has maintained a steady online following ever since A&E decided to cancel the crime drama after Season 3. Fans and cast have held "Twitter stampedes" to keep the spirit of the show alive and last week the "stampede" scored an official time each week.

The cast of the axed crime drama are contracted for the series into 2015, meaning producers still have time to find the show a new home. A number of networks have been approached with the series, including USA and TNT. Producers also met with Amazon and Netflix, though no word of a sale has been confirmed at this time.
If Longmire does manage to find a new network, it will likely return for a fourth season during the second half of 2015.
