"Longmire" -- the series adaptation of the Craig Johnson novels which had a short, happy three-season run on A&E before cancellation last year -- has an official return date on Netflix,  the streaming service that has (as you know) plunged into the deep end of the reboot pool. ("Wet Hot American Summer," for example, arrives this Friday as a series.)

And that date is ... Sept. 10.

 Netflix, at the press tour in Beverly Hills, which is just now commencing, also announced that "BoJack Horseman" will return for a third season, while a series of Chelsea Handler docs will air "soon." (No exact date)

 Here's the logline on "Longmire:"

"Walt Longmire (series star Robert Taylor), having found out who was behind the murder of his wife, succumbs to his darker impulses and takes off in pursuit of the killer with murder on his mind. Meanwhile, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase), the deputy who Walt fired for erratic, violent behavior, believes he has already figured out who the real culprit is. But during his confrontation with this suspected killer, a gun goes off. Now the audience will finally learn what happened, and whether Walt can be stopped before he makes a fatal choice..." The entire cast returns, by the way.

Meanwhile, here's what Netflix is saying about Aziz Ansari's ("Parks and Recreation") new series, "Master of None," which will arrive on Nov. 6:

"Based on the comedic viewpoints of Aziz Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Aziz Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner."
