Deadwood - 5 Canceled TV Shows That Need to Make a ComebackDeadwood

Fans of Deadwood have been clamoring for a comeback ever since the series was canceled in 2006 after three seasons, and now it looks like they’ll finally have their wish — although until filming actually begins most will still assume it still won’t happen. Starring Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, and Molly Parker among many others in an ensemble cast, Deadwood chronicles the transformation of Deadwood, South Dakota from a camp to a town. In only three seasons, Deadwood racked up 28 Emmy nominations, winning eight, en route to being named one of the greatest shows to ever be canceled.

So how did Deadwood manage to get canceled? It mostly came down to money. Despite widespread critical acclaim and a passionate fanbase, the series oversaw a big decline from season to season that showed no signs of slowing. While HBO might have been willing to put up with lower numbers given its award pedigree, the problem is that the 18th century Western was also one of the network’s most costly. And when creator David Milch was offered a final shortened season consisting of six episodes, his feeling was it was better to walk away than to try and force it.
