"Deadwood" is aliiiiiive and finally on its way back to us. The HBO show was canceled in 2006 after three seasons, but we haven't shut up about it since. In 2015, star Garret Dillahunt (Jack McCall/Francis Wolcott) tweeted out some hope when he wrote about "credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie." At the time, an HBO spokesperson said there had only been "preliminary conversations."

But now Ian McShane (Al Swearengen) says a movie script is complete, and off to the network. Here's what the always candid McShane recently told TVLine:

Series creator David Milch's "two-hour movie script has been delivered to HBO. If they don't deliver [a finished product], blame them."

Will do!

McShane further told TVLine he has talked to David Milch about some of the script, but he'll be having lunch with the boss soon for more intel.

Dillahunt promoted McShane's story on Twitter, which suggests he's in the loop as well:

Now we just need to wait and see what HBO does with the script, and which characters have been chosen to return.
