Netflix has 'done an Amazon' and brought back an axed series, with the news that the streaming service has struck a deal with Warner Horizon Television to commission a fourth series of 'Longmire'.

The back-from-the-dead show was initially cancelled after its third series.

Similarly, Amazon brought back Ripper Street after the BBC cancelled it.

The Victorian crime series is now being drip-fed onto Amazon Prime Instant Video at the rate of one episode a week and will come to the BBC next year.

The fourth series of Longmire will consist of 10 episodes and will air in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (Netflix will launch in these last two territories next year).

It hasn't confirmed when production will start, or if it will be shown in the UK at a later date.

"When Warner Horizon Television came to us with the idea for a new season of 'Longmire', we were intrigued because the show is so unique, and consistently great," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said.

"We are thrilled to help continue Walt Longmire's story for his large and passionate following."

The Longmire producers put out a joint statement saying: "We're excited and honoured to have the opportunity to bring this show that we love so much, and all its devoted fans, to Netflix."

Season four picks up where season three left off, with Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) having found out who was behind his wife's murder and going all out for revenge.

Meanwhile, the deputy who Longmire fired for violent behaviour has confronted who he thinks is the killer, and now we'll be able to find out what actually happened when that gun went off.
