Is a 'Deadwood' Revival Still Possible?


'Deadwood' Revival Still a Possibility?

Back in 2006, critically beloved western drama 'Deadwood' was abruptly canceled by HBO, without any type of resolution for the characters. The premium cable giant has a long history of allowing its original programs to end properly, which explains why the fans, cast, and creators of 'Deadwood' still harbor resentment over the fact that the formerly teased wrap-up telefilms never came to frutition.

Well, surprisingly enough, 'Deadwood' cast member Kim Dickens recently let slip during an interview that series creator David Milch still has hope that a revival might happen, and remains fully open to the possibility. It's been nearly eight years since the show was canceled, but it appears that Milch (who would go on to create short-lived horse racing drama 'Luck' for HBO as well) isn't ready to say goodbye to the profanity laced town of Deadwood, South Dakota just yet. For the sake of fans everywhere, here's hoping he's finally able to end things the right way.

Absolutely no chance.  As for the rumors genesis, I lay that at HBO's recent Deadwood apology.  It took them a decade to apologize, I doubt they'll get around to reviving it.  

They cancelled Deadwood for John from Cincinnati, they promptly canceled John from Cincinnata, they jerked our chain with a Milch cop show, they euthenized his self-indulgent Luck, and they just aborted his show about wasps.  David Milch fans are loopy fucking cunts if they expect anything from HBO.

After reading the article I believe that a Movie to wrap up things could be on the cards in the neer future IF... fans make a big enough stink to the studio.

BUT... if fans want to se more episodes that just wont happen. To many of the cast are in other TV series and it would be a bloody nightmare for anyone to even thing of trying to arrange everyones scheduals to allow time for shooting.

So wright, text, email, PM, tweet or what ever other way there is, just keep on bombarding the studio with requests for a wrap-up movie. You never know, it worked for "FireFly" - "Farscape" & "Veronica Mars"

As it stands, one of the poorest endings ever, for what was one of the most popular shows ever. I've been hoping for Deadwood to continue ever since it closed.

It would be a good excuse, as if it was needed, to rewatch the show. I certainly hope Milch and HBO can hammer out a deal.

This would be awesome as many of the cast have gone on to do interesting things the past few years.

Deadwood then Carnivale; that would be excellent and HBO would have my eternal respect. I need closure. ;-)

Better time than any to drop a quote I guess. Also to show the people who've missed out on this truly remarkable show how well Milch handles dialog. He's indeed a wordsmith in the finest essence of the word.
