HBO and creator, David Milch have decided on how they will end the popular drama, Deadwood.

The cable network reached an agreement with Milch to wrap up the show as a pair of two-hour movies rather than a full-blown fourth season, says The Hollywood Reporter. The issue of whether HBO would order a fourth season was forced in recent weeks by the fact that the cast members' contractual options for a fourth season are due to expire soon.

The full third season of Deadwood premieres tonight on HBO; Milch was offered a six-episode pickup for Season 4 rather than the 12-episode norm.
