No continuation for A Martinez


Since 2012, A Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) holds a recurring role in the TV series Longmire. But the 3rd season which has just ended in August will be the last one : the channel A&E decided not to order a continuation.
A Martinez is thus going to have to say goodbye to his character of Jacob Nighthorse, the shady businessman of Absaroka County.
The only hope would be to see the series resumed on another channel of
the American cable; the negotiations are in progress. To be continued ?
