The show was moved from Sunday night to Saturday — which the network has traditionally devoted to classic western movies and television shows — for its third season, which enjoyed increased ratings for that season. In Live + 3 Day numbers, “Hell on Wheels” averaged 3.3 million total viewers for its third season.

“[Showrunner] John Wirth and his team on both sides of the camera delivered a remarkable third season and ‘Hell On Wheels’ fans responded,” AMC president Charlie Collier said while announcing the renewal. “We are so proud of this show and congratulate everyone who has contributed to its success. AMC has served passionate Western fans for three decades, so it is particularly gratifying to see these viewers capping off their Saturdays with an original Western on what has historically been a tough night of the week for television. Our commitment to the genre is unwavering and we look forward to continuing to super-serve this audience with an expanded fourth season of ‘Hell on Wheels.'”

    I am thrilled that this show will return. I must admit when it first came out I wasn't to impressed, but I gave it a chance and I am totally hooked on it. Glad to see we will get to enjoy an extra 3 episodes. This show is so good it should be on during the Fall Season, nothing else compares with it and having something to watch on Saturdays, makes it even better.

    I was devastated to think that the show was going to go away. It broke my heart ! Please continue to keep making more seasons . I've gotten my brother hooked on the show now too. People just have to watch it and get more involved and they'll love it. I thought that it may be boring before my boyfriend told me about it but it's my favorite show of all time ! I used to go to my boyfriends house every single night just so we could watch this show together (no matter how tired I was from work) it's very addicting :)

      I too love this show but the non stopcommercial interruption absolutely ruin any entertainment continuity! Every 7 minutes you get barraged with 7 minutes of commercials! Can't stand the interruptions so we record it and watch later 35 minutes of hell on wheels 25 of commercials! Unbelievable… can't wait to see the ratio with 13 episodes of fan killing ads!!
