Hell on Wheels Renewed for Season 2 by AMC

Deadline is reporting that AMC has renewed Hell on Wheels for a second season. The western drama, which has seen its ratings fall in recent weeks, is currently on hiatus for the holidays and will begin airing the final three episodes of its first season on January 1st at 10:00. No word on how many episodes or a possible air date for season 2, but it'll likely consist of 10 more episodes premiering in fall 2012. Starring Anson Mount (Crossroads), Hell on Wheels follows Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, a man on the hunt for revenge against the Union soldier that killed his wife. The series also looks at the formation of the First Transcontinental Railroad, focusing on Thomas Durant 's (Colm Meaney, Star Trek: The Next Generation) Union Pacific, with both main plotlines offering their fair share of collateral damage. Moreso once Bohannon and Durant cross paths, with the latter offering the former a job as cut crew supervisor. The show also stars Common (Just Wright) as a recently freed slave that doesn't back down from anybody, Dominique McElligott (Moon) as the widow of a surveyor and the key to the railroad's completion, Ben Esler (The Pacific) as an opportunistic Irish immigrant, and Tom Noonan (Heat) as a reverend pushing for peace between the Indians and whites.

All Aboard for AMC's Railroad Drama Hell on Wheels

One of the resonant early images in AMC's ambitious new drama Hell on Wheels — about the building of the transcontinental railroad in the fractious days immediately after the Civil War — has religious believers ecstatically submitting to baptism while, in the background, violent progress proceeds apace, with huge explosions tearing up the terrain. "That's very representative of the show," says Tony Gayton , who created the series with his brother Joe (they've collaborated on films, including last year's... http://www.tvguide.com/News/_television/genres/amc-Hell-Wheels-1040085.aspx?rss=breakingnews

A New Foreman on 'Hell on Wheels' (VIDEO)

'Hell on Wheels' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC) has ambitious plans to tell the story of the epic 19th-century construction project that was the building of the transcontinental railroad. This week Bohannon ( Anson Mount ) tries to convince Durant ( Colm Meaney ) that he's the best man for the job of foreman because he knows all about the engineering principles involved in constructing things like bridges. And why is that? Because, as he says, with an embarrassed grin, he was really good at blowing stuff up in the Civil War. Now, telling your hopefully soon-to-be boss that you have destroyed some of his finest creations isn't a strategy we'd necessarily advocate pursuing, but if you try it and it fails, then maybe you could fall back on Bohannon's next strategy: Blackmail. He has dirt on Durant and implies that he's not afraid to use it. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/11/14/a-new-foreman-on-hell-on-wheels-video/

'Hell on Wheels' Premieres Big for AMC

AMC's new Western drama, 'Hell on Wheels,' didn't exactly impress the critics, especially AOL TV's own Mo Ryan , but it did premiere well for the network, as AMC's second biggest premiere ever with 4.4 million viewers. So it looks like 'The Walking Dead' still remains the debut ratings champ. Although Westerns tend to appeal to an older audience, the Sunday night drama also did well in the ad-friendly 18 to 49 adult demo with 2.4 million viewers. Pretty good for a post-Civil War era drama about the construction of railroads, right? http://www.aoltv.com/2011/11/07/hell-on-wheels-premieres-big-for-amc/
