HBO’s eight-time Emmy-winning drama series “Deadwood” ran for three seasons between 2004 and 2006, but was cancelled before it could get a proper send-off. With talks continuing today about a possible two-hour wrap-up movie, now is the perfect time to reminisce about what the show’s stars are up to now. Click through our photo gallery above highlighting 17 “Deadwood” cast members’ current careers, from Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane to Kim Dickens and Anna Gunn.
After his role as Sheriff Seth Bullock on “Deadwood” came to an end, Olyphant went on to star in the film “The Crazies” (2010) and FX’s “Justified” (2010-2015), which earned him an Emmy nomination for Best Drama Actor in 2011. You can currently catch him in the Netflix horror-comedy “Santa Clarita Diet” alongside Drew Barrymore.
The cutthroat character of Al Swearengen earned McShane a Golden Globe victory and an Emmy nomination in 2005. In later years, McShane starred in “Ray Donovan” (2015) and “The Pillars of the Earth” (2010), for which he earned a second Globe bid. He can currently be seen in the Starz supernatural drama “American Gods.”
Dickens, who played Joanie Stubbs, the hostess of the Bella Union, has had one of the greatest post-“Deadwood” careers. Thanks to appearing on “Sons of Anarchy” (2013-2014), “House of Cards” (2015-2016) and now “Fear the Walking Dead,” she has made a name for herself by keeping quite busy over the past decade.
Gunn appeared as Seth’s wife Martha Bullock, a school teacher, in Seasons 2 and 3. After her role on “Deadwood,” Gunn went on to star as Walter White’s better half in “Breaking Bad,” earning herself two Emmys (2013 and 2014). You can also catch her in the TV miniseries “Gracepoint” (2014) and the drama “Shades of Blue” (2017).
