Colm Meaney's "Hell On Wheels" Renewed For A Second Season

Colm Meaney's

Since it's premiere last month, Colm Meaney's new Drama Hell on Wheels has seen excellent ratings and reviews from critics. We just learned that the AMC series has been picked up for a second season. Hell on Wheels focuses on former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, portrayed by Anson Mount, whose quest for vengeance has led him to the Union Pacific Railroad's westward construction of the first transcontinental railroad. Colm plays Thomas "Doc" Durant, a greedy entrepreneur taking full advantage of the changing times. As the railroad comes closer to completion and he becomes rich beyond his wildest dreams, he becomes more and more concerned about his place in history.

According to Deadline Hollywood; Hell on Wheels debuted with 4.4 million viewers, ranking as AMC’s second-highest-rated series premiere behind mega-hit The Walking Dead in total viewers as well as adults 18-49 and 25-54. Hell On Wheels has slipped since but consistently delivers more than 2 million viewers in first-run broadcasts, most recently 2.3 million last week.

You can catch Hell on Wheels Sunday nights at 10/9c on AMC.
