I wrote the following email to HBO:
HBO has created some terrific series (i.e., The Sopranos, Sex + theCity, Six Feet Under) but, without a doubt, Deadwood is the best. I am looking forward to the new season beginning in June.
Someone over there responded:
Thank you for writing HBO. Despite recent articles on the future of our HBO Original series"DEADWOOD", there has been no decision for the future of the series, andconversations regarding a fourth season are ongoing. Since "DEADWOOD"creator David Milch is working on another HBO Original series, we'vegranted our beloved Deadwood cast the latitude to pursue other projects,for the time being. We appreciate your interest and hope that you will continue to find HBOto be a source of quality entertainment.
~ Sincerely, HBO Consumer Affairs
