The ‘cancelled far too soon’ HBO Western ‘Deadwood’ might finally get a finish to the story if current reports are true…
Following three critically acclaimed seasons on HBO, ‘Deadwood’ was unceremoniously cancelled amidst a whirlwind of protest from fans who loved the Western and wanted to see how the story ended.
Well now almost a decade after ‘Deadwood’ went off the air, talks have reportedly started again between HBO and series creator David Milch to put together a movie to wrap up the series.
TVLine reports that talks have started between Milch and the network on a potential ‘Deadwood’ project that would likely be a movie to finish out the story that began back in 2004.
There have been rumors for years that ‘Deadwood’ would be resurrected for a movie to finish out the story that never got an ending after the show was cancelled in 2006.
‘Deadwood’ star Garrett Dillahunt backed up the recent rumors with a message on Twitter that he heard rumblings that the Western might come back to life as well.

‘Deadwood’ remains one of the most beloved and talked about series in HBO history for a show that was cancelled after only three seasons. The series starred Timothy Olyphant, Kim Dickens, Ian McShane and others with many of the actors still expressing interest in finishing the story at some point down the road.
Now maybe it will finally become a reality.
