It´s time to add some more shows to both the list of renewed shows of 2012 and the list of cancelled shows of 2012.
In this case, one that´s coming back, as AMC renewed Hell on Wheels for season three. The third season renewal order for Hells on Wheels consists on ten episodes slated to air in 2013, so we´ll see more from Anson Mount´s Cullen Bouhannon next year. Colm Meaney and Common round a good cast for the show that has good yet not wowing numbers at an average of 2,4 million viewers.
Even though Hell on Wheels got renewed, show creators Joe ad Tony Gayton are
leaving the show´s role of showrunners, handing the sole reigns to John Shiban.
What is Hells on Wheels about? Plot synopsis
“Hell on Wheels” tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on a Confederate soldier (Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife. His journey takes him west to ‘Hell on Wheels,’ a dangerous, raucous, lawless melting pot of a town that travels with and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, an engineering feat unprecedented for its time. The series documents the railroad’s incredible feat of engineering and construction as well as the institutionalized greed and corruption, the immigrant experience, and the plight of the newly emancipated African-Americans during reconstruction. Over time, “Hell on Wheels” chronicles this potent turning point in our nation’s history, and how uncivilized the business of civilization can be.
