    It’s official.

    The sixth and final season of Netflix’s “Longmire” will begin principal photography at the end of March.

    According to the New Mexico Film Office, production will take place through mid-June in Santa Fe, Las Vegas, N.M., Valles Caldera, Pecos and other locations in northern New Mexico.

    The series interior shots have been housed at Garson Studios at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

    “Season 6 of such an acclaimed TV show demonstrates the incredible vitality of the New Mexico television scene,” said Nick Maniatis, NM State Film Office director. “The return of ‘Longmire’ is a testament to New Mexico crews, actors and support services that have helped make the show great for so long.”

    The acclaimed series stars Robert Taylor as Sheriff Walt Longmire. It is set in Absaroka County, Wyo. and is based off the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by Craig Johnson.

    The production will employ approximately 200 New Mexico crew members, 50 New Mexico principal actors and 1,000 New Mexico background talent.

    “We’re very happy to have ‘Longmire’ back this year, as we have been for the past five seasons,” said Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales. “This has become an iconic series with fans around the world, and we’re proud to have been a part of it.”
