I’ve watched every episode since it starting airing. In my opinion, it is a great show; far better than some of the other stuff being shown on prime time. That said, it is my hope that it is renewed because I am anxious to see where the story line goes next!

Please make a 3rd season. Please.


Tj October 9, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Please renew. Finally a western with teeth.
Note: I don’t think the Swede is dead !!

Hell on Wheels is a great show. It’s nice to see old westerns. BRING BACK LILY BELL. Her relationship with Cullen was just start. Great chemistry.


peter October 9, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Bring Lilly back to life, somehow and leave the Swede dead!


Karl R October 9, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Do the ratings include DVR or other recording? We don’t watch HoW when it comes on but save it for later.

Would be great to see this show continue.


Jim petersen October 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Awesome show! We need a third season!


Lori October 9, 2012 at 1:11 pm
