Will it be renewed for a fifth season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned!

I would like to see “Heel on Wheels”, say for sveal sesons. Quality shows – Family time – Like Gun Smoke when I was growing up. There are too many stupid sit coms out there and it’s no wonder other countries think American people are Stupid.
Thank heavens for shows like the Vikings, NCSI and I always watch “Young Guns” “Gun Smoke”and all of the all of the western shows with Sam Elliot.
I wish the BBC would have left “MERLIN” on. Something different, entertaining and not Stupid stuff.

Renew! Renew! Renew! This show rises above expectations everytime. The characters are believable and it doesn’t shy from the realities of pioneering and carving out theWest. I believ the show could do much to actually entertain as well as educate the public in American Western late 1800’s life and its conflicts.

WhY would you cancel such an interesting well written, not to mention the exceptional acting. The hour goes by so fast. It really transports you to that time in history. I hope you can find a way to keep it going. It’s clear how much time and attention to detail goes into the series. Watching it seems real not acting ,you and all involved should be proud.. Thanks

Hands down our favorite show on TV..we are on our 4th round of Hell on Wheels marathons. This is the real Old West..acting is excellent, the plot is believable and love the action packed twists and turns. Last but not least..the scenery..perfection.


Kevin Weatherby January 5, 2015 at 7:22 pm

I agree that the show should continue! Love the acting! Would hope Bohannon character gets back with his wife and son and his crew is compensated for their hard work. The Swede character needs to finally meet justice too!

Please do not cancel Hell on Wheels. It is one of the few shows that I truely enjoy anymore. There are so many darn reality shows, it drives me crazy. I love to get a break from them and watch a show as wonderful as Hell on Wheels and an actor as wonderful as Anson Mount.

Thank you
