Well it sure as fucking hell is about fucking time we got some fucking news about the new season of Deadwood. We'll stop the F-bombs-as-homage thing (that was fun though, no?) and get to the bullet points.
The 'Wood is back for a third go-round of exreme profanity, brutal violence and general wild west wildin, starting sometime in March. This season will see the addition of the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp as a character on the show. This ain't a shock considering the show's penchant for bringing historical figures into the mix. Holler at Wild Bill! What is surprising is who's playing the famed US Marshal: Gale Harold, last seen smashing mad dudes as playboy Brian on the Showtime series Queer As Folk. Harold will be switching it up a little, from cruising bros, to bringing law and order to the wild frontier. That's range, tenderfoot!
Also joining the Deadwood massive is Brian Cox (who you may remember as the chief mutant-hater in X2, and fucking Matt Damon up in the game in Bourne Supremacy). He was also the original and superior (we said it!) Hannibal Lechter in Michael Mann's Manhunter. What does all this mean? Deadwood will rule again, naturally, holding on to its slot as one of the best (tho not quite the best) shows on TV. Step your cable game up!
