 SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - In Plain Sight is gone. And Breaking Bad is wrapping up its final season in Albuquerque.

But a new television series says it is returning to film a second season in New Mexico.

The New Mexico Film Office says A&E Network's television series Longmire will be filming from the end of March through mid-August in Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Los Alamos and throughout northern New Mexico.

The series, produced by Warner Horizon Television, stars Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips and Katee Sackhoff.

Producer Chris Donahue says the "dynamic landscape, responsive communities and strong crews make it easy to return to New Mexico."

By the end of season two, he says, the production will have spent 14 out of the last 26 months living and filming in and around Santa Fe.
