Hell on Wheels: AMC Series Renewed for Season Four

hell on wheels season fourAMC has renewed Hell on Wheels for a fourth season of 13 episodes — the historical drama’s biggest order to date. The new episodes will begin airing next summer.

The cable channel was very encouraged by the ratings for season three when the series was moved from Sunday to Saturday nights, an evening known for lower viewership. Hell on Wheels also made it through a series of creative changes has prospered under the direction of showrunner John Wirth. He’ll continue in that role.

“John Wirth and his team on both sides of the camera delivered a remarkable third season and Hell on Wheels fans responded,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “AMC has served passionate Western fans for three decades, so it is particularly gratifying to see these viewers capping off their Saturdays with an original Western on what has historically been a tough night of the week for television.”

A decision on the fate of Low Winter Sun hasn’t been announced yet but, thanks to some very low ratings, the show isn’t expected to survive.

    Hell On Wheels exige uma quarta temporada. É impossível aceitar que acabe no fim da terceira com todas as piores pessoas ficando vitoriosas.

    So glad there is something to watch besides reality shows…there are tons of people who like this type of show and I for one would love to see some of those reality cancelled.

    We ‘ve loved the show from the start although the second season was cancelled in this area. We did pick it back up last season and are very happy it’s back again this year. We think it’s one of the best shows out there and look forward to watching it again!

    A super well done Western adventure with historical undertones. Truly my kind of show. Keep up the good work.

    I have only viewed season 1 and 2 on Netflix but I very much enjoyed the series! I am very glad that the show is to continue and look forward to seeing season 3 on Netflix.
