Before Westworld, HBO had Deadwood, a true western without all the science fiction elements of their current hit. The show ran three seasons, starting in 2004, before ending in 2006.
Since 2006, Deadwood fans have been hungry for more, and there has been talk of a movie that wraps up the series for over a decade.
TVLine reports that HBO is looking to start production on a revival movie for Deadwood in Fall 2018.
Though TVLine claims to have their sources, they admit that a representative from HBO declined to comment about the project, which hasn’t actually gotten the green light, yet.
Just this past summer, HBO’s top programming exec, Casey Bloys, confirmed the project was finally in the works:
“The one thing that I was concerned about was I wanted a script that would stand on its own [for Deadwood fans and non-fans]. [Series creator] David [Milch] totally delivered on that. I think it’s a terrific script. If we can do it on a budget that makes sense for us, and if we can get the cast together, we’re inclined to do it.”
Only time will tell if the project actually comes together this time, but things are certainly looking better for Deadwood fans.
