AMC has renewed their successful Hell on Wheels drama for a third season of 10 episodes.
Hell on Wheels takes place in post-Civil War America and follows a former Confederate soldier as he travels West while the first transcontinental railroad is being constructed. The show features the talents of Anson Mount, Common, Colm Meaney, Dominique McElligott, Christopher Heyerdahl, and Robin McLeavy.
The second season of Hello on Wheels finished airing on October 7th and the 10 episodes averaged a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.36 million viewers. That was down when compared to the first season's ratings -- a 1.0 in the demo and 2.98 million. Only The Killing did worse for AMC this year and that was cancelled back in July.
