Deadwood To Close With Movies

Subscribe to HBO alerts

LATEST: The creator of cult US TV western series DEADWOOD has struck a deal with network HBO to conclude the show with a pair of TV movies. Recent reports suggest DAVID MILCH snubbed a chance to film a shortened fourth season, preferring instead to end the show, set in the late 1800s, at the conclusion of its upcoming run. The stumbling block for a shortened series is the show's format of each episode representing a day in the life of the South Dakota settlement. But a pair of two-hour films will allow the show to break this mould. Milch says, "I am thrilled that we were able to figure out a way to continue. No one was ready to let go of the show. "I am really glad we have found a way to proceed that works creatively." The show remains a huge hit - in two seasons, it has won the prestigious Peabody Award, five Emmy Awards and British star Ian McShane picked up a Best Actor Golden Globe for his portrayal of foul-mouthed gang boss AL SWEARENGEN.
