Tv drama series Longmire has been cancelled by executives at America's A&E Network.

Producers behind the show, which was the network's most-watched original drama series in the channel's history, just wrapped its third season, but bosses have decided to not move forward with a fourth.

A statement from a network representative reads, "We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at (studio) Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together."

The series, which stars Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff, will reportedly be shopped to other networks, according to
