Hell on Wheels Returns August 3rd

AMC have confirmed a Saturday August 3rd premiere date for the third season of its period western drama series “Hell on Wheels”.

Many are curious to see what kind of show we can expect following the various key character deaths in the second season finale, not to mention the behind-the-scenes musical chairs going on in terms of who is actually running the show.

Current showrunner John Wirth says the new season “will be a western about work – the building of the railroad, the binding of the nation after the Civil War, and the rehabilitation of the men who lived and fought their way through those exploits. This season we’re placing Cullen Bohannon at the center of the show, and taking him away from the revenge motive which propelled him into the series.”
