HBO renews ‘Deadwood’

HBO has greenlit a third season of “Deadwood.” Production on the 12 new episodes will begin later this year for a 2006 launch. After four weeks, David Milch’s grisly Western has proven itself a strong performer for HBO without “The Sopranos,” which preceded the initial season of the show.

‘Deadwood’ to-date has averaged a respectable 2.9 million viewers – well above the tally for HBO’s latest entries “Entourage,” “Unscripted” and last season of “The Wire.”
