I love the show, but now that all the primaries are gone except 3, I’m wondering what they will build on? The season finale was good. Almost too good to keep it going. There are a few open doors, but, well…


Buzz October 7, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Cancel it, they’ve already written themselves into a massive corner.


Justin October 7, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Agreed, I loved the show but the writers have derailed another show with their blantant stupidity in the finale. Expertly directed though. Needs to be cancelled to teach short sighted writers such as these a basic lesson: you dont kill off one (oh wait they killed TWO) of your main characters in only its second season in a CHARACTER, not plot, driven show.

Please bring Hell on Wheels back for season 3!


melanie October 7, 2012 at 8:07 pm

loved the finale but it looked pretty final. If there is a season 3, who’s left? How sad to see another great show disappear!


Lakeman October 7, 2012 at 8:06 pm

I am hooked on this show. Please make a third season! I need to see the next chapter!


Angelia October 7, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Hell on Wheels is the best show on TV right now. RENEW!!!


Kathleen October 7, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Please renew! I’m hooked on it now…

I’m worried. When shows like Game of Thrones and Copper (both fantastic) get renewed after an episode or two, the fact that Hell on Wheels hasn’t been yet doesn’t bode well. Maybe I’m wrong. I’d like to be. I love this show!


Hells Bells October 6, 2012 at 8:50 pm

GREAT SHOW! Catching fire quickly!!!


Hells Bells October 6, 2012 at 8:45 pm
