AMC's Western drama will return Aug. 2
“Hell on Wheels” will get rolling again in August.
AMC has set a premiere date for the fourth season of its Western drama, with the show returning on Aug. 2 at 9 p.m.
The upcoming season has been expanded to 13 episodes. The first 10 episodes will run consecutively through Oct. 4, with the show returning on Nov. 8 following a hiatus for AMC's annual FearFest programming.
The series, which stars Anson Mount, Colm Meaney and Common, averaged 3.3 million total viewers last year, after shifting to a new Saturday night time slot, where it resides with the network's Western programming. The fourth season of “Hell on Wheels” will see the series partnered with films including “The Horse Whisperer,” “Tombstone” and “Jeremiah Johnson,” along with the miniseries “Comanche Moon.”
