The madness of Comic-Con 2013 gave AMC the chance to show off its new wares in 'The Walking Dead' season 4 and the final eight episodes of 'Breaking Bad,' but period drama 'Hell on Wheels' season 3 presence was relegated to adorning the rails of the local trolley. Now, the cable network has made up for things with a few fresh trailers and behind the scenes documentary looking at Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount)'s latest ride!

Though AMC's period drama 'Hell on Wheels' may have circled the drain for a bit, the railroad-building series will officially return for a third season on Saturday, Aug. 10, returning Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) to the fold for another year of high-stakes Western action. The first official poster for 'Hell on Wheels' season 3 has arrived on horseback, so will it get fans excited enough to follow the series to Saturday nights?
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?
Just a few short months ago, 'Hell on Wheels' fans were dismayed to learn that the period drama's season 3 renewal was placed on hold after showrunner Josh Shiban and co-creators/executive producers Joe and Tony Gayton were announced to depart the series. Now under new show-runner John Wirth, the third season of AMC's transcontinental railroad drama has been given a premiere of August 3, curiously leading a new block of programming on Saturday nights.
A few months ago AMC's period drama 'Hell on Wheels' found itself in dire straits, as despite a season 3 renewal, showrunner Josh Shiban and co-creators/executive producers Joe and Tony Gayton were announced to depart the series. A third season of the acclaimed drama was put on hold until 'Falling Skies' vet John Wirth signed on to helm the series, putting it back on track to debut this summer. So, who's the first major new character to sign on for 'Hell on Wheels' season 3?
Given that FX's 'Sons of Anarchy' has proved the cable network's biggest success to date, we weren't surprised to hear that series creator Kurt Sutter would continue his partnerhsip with the network by developing additional programs. In addition to the bizare killer clown comedy we'd earlier heard about, Sutter has begun development of supernatural drama 'Lucas Stand' with former 'Hell On Wheels' showrunner John Shiban for FX, but what's the new drama all about?
We've heard rumblings of several new AMC projects lately, partly to compensate for the uncertain status of 'Hell on Wheels' season 3. The series had previously been renewed for a third year, but that renewal was cast into doubt when showrunner Josh Shiban and co-creators/executive producers Joe and Tony Gayton were announced to depart the series. Now, AMC has tapped John Wirth ('Falling Skies,' 'The Cape,' 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles') to fill the void as executive producer/showrunner, so is 'Hell on Wheels' season 3 officially back on the rails?
Uh-oh! Seems like AMC has landed itself in hot water with its series showrunners once again, as 'Hell On Wheels' season 3 may not be as done a deal as we thought. Earlier we'd heard about the renewal for the medium-rated AMC Western series, followed by the announcement that its creators would depart the show, and now it seems the showrunner himself has departed as well! So what does that mean for the future of 'Hell On Wheels'? Will AMC scrap its plans for a third season after all?
Yesterday, amid all the insanity of Hurricane Sandy we learned the surprising news from AMC that transcontinental railroad drama 'Hell on Wheels' would keep rolling for a third season, in spite of its mediocre ratings and lukewarm critical reception. An official airdate has not yet been set for the western series' return, but what will be different about 'Hell on Wheels' season 3? Might cast or creative depart the series?
She may have drifted quietly along, but by golly, 'Hell On Wheels' has kept chugging along. Several weeks after fininishing out its second, mildly-rated season, AMC has announced that it will bring the Anson Mount-fronted western series back for a third season, to be aired at an unknown date. But with the murky airdate, what's changed about the number of episodes for the third season? Does 'Hell On Wheels' have less track ahead of it?
