Deadwood Kaput

Well, seems that we aren’t even going to get a last hurrah out of the Deadwood camp. According to an interview with Ian McShane over Cinematical, “they’re dismantling the ranch and taking the stuff out. That ship is gonna sail. Bonsoir, Deadwood. McShane continues on to say that with the possible pending strikes and his schedule, if it did happen, it would probably be last next year before anything started.

Apparently the former Mr Swearengen feels a little let down as well: “You feel cheated? Imagine how I feel!” he replied. “We all do. We all do. It was one of those one-off jobs that you do which has got an extraordinary creative brain behind it, and it kept getting better, and the actors were great. It was a fabulous place to be and work. It was a workshop cum theater cum film. It was an extraordinary time. But everything has to come to an end, babe.”

Happy trails, Deadwood. Happy trails. The only thing carrying me on pay cable as of late is Dexter. Deadwood, Carnivale, and John from Cincinnati have all set sail as well…
