It has been almost two years since Sheriff Walt Longmire's (Robert Taylor) story ended, but fans are still hopeful for Longmire Season 7. Fans might once again see the show's cast members, but it might be in a different form.

Before Season 6 concluded, Taylor told TVInsider he was not yet ready to say goodbye to his character, Walt. "You never say never," he said.

Taylor revealed there have been formal talks about doing Longmire movies, and he assured all of them would like to do it. No one from the cast forgot the series as they even participated in the recent annual Longmire Days fan event from July 18 to 21.

Although the season finale tied all the loose ends, it left some things open-ended for a possible Longmire Season 7 or movie. The characters' story might continue in some form, but a film version is said to be all the rage right now.

As there has been a Deadwood: The Movie, an upcoming Breaking Bad and Sopranos films, it is not far that Walt's story may continue on the big screen. The show had run on two different networks, A&E and Netflix.

Longmire initially launched on A&E, but it got canceled after three seasons with a major cliffhanger. As fans were eager to see the show's continuation, they started a protest until it got saved by Netflix.

Netflix has been known by picking up and renewing canceled series, giving Longmire a new home. Its final season was released on Nov. 17, 2017, with 10 new episodes. Unfortunately, the streaming giant ended the series with no hope for Longmire Season 7.

Anyhow, the web streaming service gave the show a proper conclusion that it deserved. "We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters that inspires lasting memories," show's executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin, and John Coveny said in a joint statement, via Bustle.

The executive producers said the most important thing for them was they had been committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to their fans as a reward to their loyalty. Lou Diamond Phillips, who played Henry Standing Bear, on the other hand, added the final season brought closure and satisfaction to everyone.

He also felt honored that the show ended on Netflix and not on the traditional television network. So far, there is no confirmation about Longmire Season 7 or if it will have a movie version. So, fans have to wait for an official announcement about that.
