Deadwood fans may finally get the closure they've been looking for since the HBO series went off the air nearly 10 years ago.
Rumors have long been circulating about a possible Deadwood movie (or two) that would wrap up plotlines that were left lingering when the show abruptly ended after three seasons in 2006, but nothing has come to fruition.
However, a couple of tweets from star Garret Dillahunt on Wednesday gave fans a bit of renewed hope (along with a great Entourage burn).
HBO confirmed that "preliminary" talks are underway to give Deadwood a proper conclusion. "In reference to Garret Dillahunt's tweet regarding the rumored Deadwood movie, there have only been very preliminary conversations," the network said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Created by David Milch, Deadwood was a Western set in the 1800s in the titular South Dakota town, with some characters based on actual historical figures. In addition to Dillahunt, the cast included Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Sarah Paulson, Anna Gunn, Titus Welliver, John Hawkes and Powers Boothe.
Now that Olyphant is done with Justified and McShane is returning to HBO on Game of Thrones, we shall do as Dillahunt asked: #Everybodypray.
