If you prefer a shot of whiskey, two bit whores, six shooters and unruly facial hair over emo haircuts, you’ll be happy to know HBO has reached a compromise with David Milch. Instead of evicting the residents of Deadwood after its third season, series will wrap up with a pair of two hour movies.
For the past month, it was assumed that Deadwood would be DOA come its season premiere after HBO announced it would not be renewing the contract options for its series’ stars, which were set to expire on the date of the season opener, June 11… The show’s swan song incarnation is a happy medium for both Milch and the network, who previously had discussed a truncated six-episode final season in lieu of a full-blown 12-episode order.
