>HBO will fund a Deadwood movie instead of this
I don't mind them ditching the HBO Crypt Keeper if they aim for one more like the original comic series. The puppet from the HBO series is probably falling apart anyway and if they did bring him back I'm sure they'd go for a CGI replacement instead of making a new one.

fucking kill me
the only way they could salvage it is if they get good writers and make hour long original episodes with good plots and actual scary moments instead of just by the numbers "greedy idiot kills someone and now has to hastily cover it up" episodes
>Reportedly the new version may not be a weekly anthology series like HBO’s adaptation. Instead, each season will have one storyline for 13 episodes, not unlike American Horror Story, and the first season will focus on voodoo in New Orleans.
That's just staying closer to how the comics depicted him and it can be done well. The 70s movie did it and it was awesome.
