Longmire – ‘The Complete 1st Season’: Date, Package Art and Bonus Material

2-disc set from Warner will be in stores on May 28th

To close murder cases under open skies, he’s your man. Out of bestselling author Craig Johnson’s mystery novels strides Walt Longmire, the charismatic and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County and the world-weary yet dedicated lead character of this spellbinding hit series. Struggling since his wife’s death a year ago and at the urging of his attorney daughter, Walt knows he must turn his life around. Aided by a new female deputy and his oldest friend, he becomes reenergized about his job and running for reelection, though an ambitious younger deputy is a rival candidate for the job. And despite the dark secrets and tangled relationships that pervade this 2-Disc, 10-Episode Season One Set, he doggedly solves the big crimes of Wyoming’s big sky country.

Special Features: The Slow Burn: Shooting Longmire – Longmire has the unique advantage of taking place in Wyoming, but the show is technically photographed in New Mexico. The world Walt Longmire calls home and where the story takes place would not be possible without the skilled artisans behind the camera. This documentary film proves that story may start on the page, but what lands on the frame is what ultimately counts.

The A&E-airing series is coming to DVD May 28th with Warner Home Video’s release of Longmire – The Complete 1st Season. Based on Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire books, it stars Robert Taylor (Home and Away), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Lou Diamond Phillips (Stand and Deliver), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville, and includes recurring appearances by Gerald McRaney (Simon & Simon). The 2-disc set will include 10 episodes, plus the extras mentioned in the studio description quoted at the top.
