AMC Renews Hell On Wheels for Season 3

  • 37comments

This train keeps on rollin'! AMC has ordered a third season of Hell on Wheels, according to Deadline Hollywood. The series' second season averaged 2.4 million viewers during its run, not too bad for an AMC series, but well below the network's megahit The Walking Dead, which recently broke cable records by drawing more than 10 million viewers.

The third season of the Western drama, about a former Confederate soldier (Anson Mount) who moves west to avenge the murder of his wife in Railroad Country, will once again consist of 10 episodes. However, Hell on Wheels will return without the duo that created it. Joe and Tony Gayton were only signed on for two seasons and will shift their focus to other projects. Showrunner John Shiban will stick around.

I bailed pretty early on the show as I found it watchable but fairly unspectacular. However, I heard things really picked up in Season 2. Did you keep up with it? Is it worth getting back into?
