Walt Longmire is the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County. Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady, Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic, a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election. When Branch, an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional life, one step at a time.
No calm after the storm.

The scenes for Longmire's cabin are filmed in the Valles Caldera in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. The caldera is a 14-mile-wide volcanic crater. It is now a national preserve. Several Westerns including The Missing
(2003) and The Lone Ranger
(2013) have used this location. See more
In at least one episode, when Walt finds a firearm in possession of a character, they explain to the sheriff that "It's registered". Wyoming, like many states, does not require registration of either firearms or firearms owners. See more
