Deadwood Near Fourth-Season Renewal

Jan 6, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Though its third season has yet to debut, HBO is set to renew its Western drama “Deadwood” for a fourth round, sources said Thursday. The premium network had no comment.

The 2004 debut season of “Deadwood” paired the David Milch drama with the most recent outing of “The Sopranos.” HBO originally planned to re-pair the duo when the mob drama made its long-awaited sixth-season return in March. Instead, the network pushed “Deadwood” to June and will instead pair “The Sopranos” with “Big Love,” a drama about a polygamous family produced by Tom Hanks.
