1877. A new day is dawning in the Black Hills outlaw camp of Deadwood. For better or worse, times are changing, and the transformation from camp to town is imminent.
Unsavoury new arrivals – looking to cash in on the lucrative anarchy – and a government of outsiders usher in an era of hard decisions and brutal power struggles among the camp’s founders. Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) is the new Sheriff and forced to stand his ground against two conniving brothel owners: cutthroat Al Swearengen (Ian McShane), and his chiefrival, the cunning Cy Tolliver (Powers Boothe).
The women of Deadwood prove their mettle as Calamity Jane (Robin Weigert), Alma Garret (Molly Parker), and whores Trixie (Paula Malcomson) and Joanie (Kim Dickens) stake their claim in this dangerous town of scheming misfits, all learning the hard way… fortune comes with a price.
In Deadwood: A Lie Agreed Upon, tensions flare as the camp faces an uncertain future. Al Swearengen taunts Seth Bullock over his relationship with Alma Garret, and the resulting confrontation between sheriff and criminal turns violent.
With a new business venture on the horizon, Joanie Stubbs and Cy Tolliver await the arrival of some fancy new whores on the next stagecoach, which also bears two important reminders of Bullock’s past.
