Exclusive First Look: AMC's Hell On Wheels Steams Toward Season 2!

All aboard! AMC’s Hell On Wheels is gearing up for a second season, and TVLine has your exclusive glimpse at some photos from upcoming episodes.

We’ll warn you right now: No one in the pictures appears to be having much fun, but can you blame them? The dark Western drama follows vengeance-seeking former Confederate soldier Cullen (played by Anson Mount) as he travels west on a crew building the first transcontinental railroad. The residents of the mobile town that follows the construction – known as “Hell On Wheels” – are prostitutes, mercenaries, company men and other unsavory characters.

In short: Everyone’s got a reason to look grim.

Hell On Wheels returns Sunday, August 12 (9/8c) on AMC. Until then, take a gander at our gallery and then hit the comments with what you suspect is ahead for Cullen, Doc Durant, Ruth, Joseph Black Moon, Eva, Mr. Toole and the rest of the gritty gang.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. Terry says:

    Can’t wait. Really enjoyed season 1.

  3. Chris says:

    Looking forward to Hell on Wheels return. This show was one of those “didn’t think I would like but glad I tuned in” moments.

  4. Jeffrey says:

    AMC has done it again. Great show. Looking forward to season 2.

  5. Sareeta says:

    I gave up after 2 episodes and reading reviews giving ratings of D’s and F’s. Did it get better?

    • Joann says:

      You really should have hung in there — the first two episodes really were a history lesson — but by episode 3 it started running and the last two episodes of the season were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

  6. Emily says:

    Really excited for season 2, I too didn’t think I’d like it but now, man, I’m hooked. One of my favorite shows. AMC, I don’t know how you do it, but keep it comin’.

  7. Kasper F. Nielsen says:

    Can’t wait for season 2 to begin. I really enjoyed the first season, even though I at first expected it to be like Deadwood and it certainly isn’t.

  8. LOL says:

    Nice to see the show’s publicists have already begun posting glowing reviews. #hypeFAIL

  9. Jason says:

    I too checked it out just to make sure it wasn’t for me but ended up liking it. Which is really something because I often don’t care for period pieces. That said I do hope season 2 is better.

  10. Kristi says:

    Hell on Wheels was my favorite new show this past season. I cannot WAIT for season 2! I want to see what is going on with everybody! Thanks for the great pics! (Joseph and Ruth, *le sigh*!)

  11. Cannot wait to see season 2!
