Following last month’s teaser, HBO shares the official trailer for the long-awaited Deadwood: The Movie. Nearly 13 years after the show’s cancelation, the majority of the cast returns as HBO proclaims, “Welcome the fuck back to Deadwood.”
Deadwood was cancelled following its third season, seemingly due to budgetary reasons. Now, David Milch’s Western gets the ending it deserves, again, over a decade later, after Milch teased the possibility of a movie shortly following the show’s removal from HBO.
Set in Deadwood as its residents celebrate South Dakota’s statehood in 1889, we find old foes at each other’s throats, alliances tested, and wounds reopened, with saloon owner Al Swearengen clashing with Sheriff Seth Bullock. Nearly the entire original cast returns, including Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, Paula Malcomson, John Hawkes, Anna Gunn, Dayton Callie, Brad Dourif, Robin Weigert, William Sanderson, Kim Dickens, Gerald McRaney, Sean Bridgers, W. Earl Brown, and Keone Young.
You can look forward to Deadwood: The Movie premiering on HBO May 31.
