The cable net has reached an agreement with David Milch, the cuss-friendly western's creator and exec producer, to wrap up the drama next year with a pair of two-hour TV movies rather than a fourth season.
They have to renegotiate contracts with the other actors anyway, so this might be the best of option. I've always suspected that some of this might simply be to get the buzz out to justify another season... doubtful, but I can hope.

"Oedipus ruined a great sex life by asking too many questions." Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report
"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first woman she meets and then teams up with three complete strangers to kill again." Unknown, Marin County newspaper's TV listing for "The Wizard of Oz"
It's like the Sting/Sting thing. Wrestlers are more likely to be cynical about protecting themselves than singers/writers so Sting (Steve Borden) copyrighted the name long before Sting (Gordon Sumner) probably ever thought about it.
