‘Hell on Wheels’ Season 3 Spoilers: First Six Episode Descriptions Released
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything concrete from AMC period drama ‘Hell on Wheels,’ which since overcame its behind-the-scenes struggles to begin production, but most recently endured a minor setback due to flooding on the Canadian set. The premiere has since been moved to Saturday, Aug. 10, so what spoilers from the new season have we already gleamed in the first six episode descriptions?
The first two episodes, “Big Bad Wolf” and “Eminent Domain,” appear to double up on the same description, which likely suggests a two-hour premiere for the Aug. 10 debut. Meanwhile, it looks like Cullen (Anson Mount) and Elam (Common) will be spending plenty of time together across the first six episodes, while Durant encounters his own obstacles in getting the railway built.
Episode 3.01 – Big Bad Wolf
Cullen and Elam secure their railroad positions in New York; Durant fights for his legacy from prison
Episode 3.02 – Eminent Domain
Cullen and Elam secure their railroad positions in New York; Durant fights for his legacy from prison.
Episode 3.03 – Range War
Cullen and Elam search for their stolen food on the prairie; a stranger’s arrival threatens Elam’s family.
Episode 3.04 – The Game
Cullen and Elam try to secure a new lumber source following a railroad accident; Durant tells Louise a secret about Cullen.
Episode 3.05 – Searchers

Episode 3.06 – One Less Mule

Little has been revealed of the third season of ‘Hell on Wheels,’ other than a meaty new role for ‘The Following‘ star Jennifer Ferrin, and the fact that Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) will leave behind his mission of revenge to focus on the railroad expansion. President Ulysses S. Grant has been said to appear as a recurring character, but no actor has yet been announced to take the role.
Well, what say you? Are you excited for the debut of ‘Hell on Wheels’ season 3, even if AMC airs the drama on Saturdays? What do you hope to see from the new season of the Western drama?
