Deadwood Lives with Four-Hour Finale
Source: Variety
June 5, 2006


Variety reports that HBO and Deadwood creator-executive producer David Milch have agreed to produce a pair of two-hour specials that will serve as the show's series finale.

While Milch's grisly Western had been presumed a goner last month after HBO announced it would not be renewing options on the large cast, HBO said Sunday that the series and its fans would get closure in what amounts to a four-hour event.

HBO will have to renegotiate new deals -- now for a pair of two-hours as opposed to a full season -- with all of the players. Although no one is locked into continuing with Deadwood, an HBO representative said the network was confident in reaching all the deals necessary to proceed with the show in its new incarnation.

No decisions had been made about a production start date or a premiere date.

At least they agreed on this much. Last I had read it was as going to be over after this season with none of the lose ends resolved (like Carnivale).

I think you meant to post this in the Sopranos thread.

I'm beginning to think I've been played by Milch and HBO like I'm some Yankton hooplehead.

Nice job by those guys creating a buzz about the show and some controversy leading into season 3.
