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.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Hell on Wheels has been renewed for a fourth season?

i just moved (november 2013) to the small town that anson is from, white bluff, tn, to be closer to my sister. i’m originally from nashville. one of the groups i’m in on facebook is bluffwatch. i asked about anson and i got so much feedback about him from people who grew up with him and know his parents. there was not one negative response. his parents still live here. if any of you saw anson on arsenio hall, there really is a restaurant called carl’s perfect pig here in white bluff. it’s a small town meat and 3 and has been here forever and very popular. from what i understand, when anson comes home he still goes into the restaurant and does not act any different than when he was growing up here; very polite and unassuming.

i’ve been a fan of hell on wheels since the beginning. and from the start i’ve had an
old-woman crush on him (i’m over 50). he’s such a doll baby even if he’s old enough to be my son!!!!!

Love this series. Bring more on please. Season 3 not as good as Season 2, but still open and wide. Space and breadth of the environment and empathy for the characters are the strong points. Well done.
