The “Deadwood” movie isn’t coming to a theater near you, but it will stream on HBO this Spring. The network released a first-look trailer for the upcoming film on social media this week and set a May 31st premiere date. The “Deadwood Movie” will hit HBO almost a month after the big “Game of Thrones: Season 8” premiere, so fans should check on that HBO Go account.

HBO teased the movie on YouTube adding, “Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.”

“Deadwood” ran for three seasons on HBO and had 36-episodes between 2004 to 2006. During that time the “Deadwood” series was nominated for 28 Primetime Emmy Awards, winning eight, including Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Walter Hill). The series also received a Golden Globe Award for Best Performer by an Actor in a Television Series — Drama (Ian McShane). Fans on social media seemed pretty excited when the movie was announced, and the news spent the day trending on Twitter.

Fans of the original series should recognize most of the cast. Returning cast members include: Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, Paula Malcomson, John Hawkes (HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”) , Anna Gunn, Dayton Callie, Brad Dourif, Robin Weigert (HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” “Angels in America”), William Sanderson (HBO’s “True Blood”), Kim Dickens (HBO’s “Treme”), Gerald McRaney, Sean Bridgers, W. Earl Brown and Keone Young (HBO’s “True Blood”), among others. The film will also feature new cast member Jade Pettyjohn.
