How to watch ‘Deadwood: The Movie’ for free

YouTube

Welcome back to Deadwood.

“No one gets out alive,” Al Swearengen, ever the foul-mouthed poet, warned us during Deadwood original run on HBO. And while that may be true, at least with the Deadwood movie, we’ll finally get some closure. 

Deadwood was canceled before its time, but since its 2004-2006 run, the world has justifiably come around to this modern classic. The HBO original movie is set a decade after the season 3 finale (1889), featuring the citizens who flocked to the boomtown celebrating Deadwood’s impending entrance into the U.S. as the 40th state. Some villains have softened, others have coarsened with the times. Notable figures like swarthy saloon owner Al Swearengen, foul-mouthed Calamity Jane, lecherous E.B. Farnum, and the occasionally heroic Seth Bullock will all be there. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Deadwood: The Movie online for free.
