Exclusive 'Hell on Wheels' Season 3 Premiere Photos: Cullen Vs. The "Big Bad Wolf"


After a few production setbacks that nearly saw the series scrapped altogether, AMC's transcontinental railroad drama 'Hell on Wheels' finally returns for season 3 this Saturday, August 10, as part of AMC's big premiere weekend. The two-hour season 3 premiere "Big Bad Wolf" / "Eminent Domain" will pick up with Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) leading the transcontinental railroad effort, and we've got exclusive photos of Cullen, Elam and Thomas 'Doc' Durant back in the saddle for another explosive ride.

Season 3 of the AMC period drama 'Hell on Wheels' sees Cullen Bohannon leaving behind his quest for vengeance and and re-investing in the new American landscape. Picking up in 1867 with the transcontinental railroad's third year, the new 10-episode run will feature the origins of big business, big religion, and the rise of Wall Street in the White House, all while Bohannon leads the Union Pacific in a breakneck race for production against the Central Pacific Railroad.

Our exclusive photos from season 3 premiere "Big Bad Wolf" / "Eminent Domain" see the core three men back in action, hosting new looks at Elam (Common) and Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney), blinded by the light on his way out of the big house from season 2 finale "Blood Moon Rising." We also get our first look at Louise Ellison ('The Following' star Jennifer Ferrin), a smart, witty and flirtatious New York Sun journalist covering the “story of the century,” the building of the railroad.

'Hell on Wheels' season 3 will premiere in its new AMC timeslot tomorrow night, Saturday, August 10 at 9:00 P.M., but in the meantime check out our exclusive season 3 photos from "Big Bad Wolf" / "Eminent Domain" below, and tell us in the comments if you'll tune in for the new season 'Hell on Wheels'!
