Deadwood aired three seasons on HBO before the series was cancelled abruptly by the network. The cast and crew thought a fourth season was in the works after the season three finale aired, but the series was cancelled during the break.
Kim Dickens starred on the HBO series, and she now stars on Fear the Walking Dead on AMC. A film for Deadwood has been talked about since the series ended, and Kim Dickens confirmed the rumors.
According to Digital Spy, she said:
“I did hear all those rumours and then I heard that yeah, those rumors were actual real discussions that were happening. No-one’s approached me and there’s nothing set in stone, so I don’t know, but it looks like it’s something that everyone intends to do. By everyone, I have no idea what everyone is going to do, but as far as HBO and David Milch, it was my understanding that it was their hope to do that.”
The actress also spoke about the abrupt cancellation of the series.
“I remember we finished season three and we were sort of all told that we were coming back for season four and then during the hiatus the plans changed, so we didn’t even really get to tie up the stories at the end of three because we thought we were all coming back. It was a real disturbance – it had a real passionate fan base.”
Dickens made it clear that she would gladly return to the role if a film was created to close out the series. Right now, she is busy filming season two of Fear the Walking Dead.
