A&E has pulled the plug on its most-watched original drama Longmire. The studio behind the show, Warner Horizon, is expected to be shopping it to other networks. The show pulled in 4.6 million viewers in its third season, which ended earlier this month.

A&E said this in a statement:

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

The show follows Longmire, a Wyoming county sheriff that returns to work after his wife's tragic death. Assisted by his friends and his daughter, Longmire investigates major crimes within his jurisdiction, while campaigning for re-election.

It stars Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, Katee Sackhoff as Victoria "Vic" Moretti, Lou Diamond Phillips as Henry Standing Bear, Cassidy Freeman as Cady Longmire and Bailey Chase as Branch Connally.
