Based upon the Walt Longmire mystery novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire is a contemporary crime thriller set in big sky country that focuses on a Wyoming sheriff rebuilding his life and career after the death of his wife.
Robert Taylor (The Matrix) stars as Walt Longmire, the appealing, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Widowed only a year, he is a man in psychic repair, but buries his pain behind a brave face, unassuming grin and dry wit.

When an exotic dancer shows up dead on Longmire's territory, Longmire and his team quickly recognize that the victim is from out of town.

Meanwhile, Cady develops an unexpected relationship that could stir up controversy in their small town.
03 - A Damn Shame
When the Stewart family barn goes down in flames with the owner and his beloved, award-winning horses inside, Longmire believes this is more than a planned suicide. Through his unconventional and old-fashioned approach, Longmire and his team soon realize that things are not what they seem and the Stewart family's long-buried secrets are the key to solving the investigation.
04 - The Cancer
When a lone fisherman hooks the bodies of two murdered men, including a teen from the Cheyenne Reservation, Longmire is once again reminded that his beloved West isn't the way it used to be.

It's Longmire's responsibility to put the pieces of this puzzle together, and he turns to Henry Standing Bear for help.
05 - Dog Soldier
After a Cheyenne foster child goes missing, Walt and the team investigate the boy's birth family on the "Res." The stakes are raised when two more Cheyenne foster boys disappear and an unregistered sex offender is reported missing. The children in the group home insist that the boys were taken by a "dog soldier," a legendary Cheyenne warrior who can change shape from man to dog. Walt knows that the kidnapper was not a spirit, but a man who must be found before the unthinkable happens.
06 - The Worst Kind of Hunter
A body is found in the woods mauled by a bear and Walt suspects that the bear was baited to attack. He and the team must track down both the bear and the person who used it as a murder weapon. When they discover that the victim was a murderer released early from prison due to overcrowding, it leads to a long list of suspects.

07 - 8 Seconds
When a wealthy beer distributor is found beaten within an inch of his life, Walt is puzzled over why the attacker stole a seemingly worthless painting. The main suspect is a bronc rider whom the victim recently dropped from sponsorship, but the discovery of an affair and a secret about the painting lead the team to realize that there are many possible motives for this brutal crime. Meanwhile, Vic's husband (guest star MICHAEL MOSELEY) returns home for a rare visit and she struggles with his jealousy of her relationship with Walt. Branch's father (guest star GERALD McRANEY) learns something that could be damaging to his campaign.
08 - An Incredibly Beautiful Thing
Walt investigates the murder of a gas station owner who tried to help an unstable and barefoot young woman who claimed to be in danger. He asks Henry to use his tracking skills to find her and the trail leads to an abandoned baby, a heavily guarded drilling site in another county, and evidence of a dangerous cult. The team races to find the young woman, unsure if she is a suspect or a victim, while digging deeper into the cult's mysteries. Henry's previous tracking experiences also reveal insights into Walt's past.
09 - Dogs, Horses and Indians
When the president of the Tribal Council is found dead in his car on county land, it's clear to Walt that the body has been moved from the original crime scene - but why? He discovers that the victim had a gambling problem and delves into the seedy world of an underground poker game run out of a tattoo parlor. After tribal politics come into play, the suspect list grows tenfold. Meanwhile, Walt deals with feelings of betrayal when he uncovers Cady and Branch's affair.
10 - Unfinished Business
Walt investigates the murder of a teenager who was one of four boys acquitted of raping a developmentally disabled Cheyenne girl. When another boy is killed, all signs point to the crime being an act of revenge by the girl's brother.

And the arrival of a detective from Denver forces Walt to finally confront the reality of his wife's death.
