Here's how the West was won, according to AMC: by moving Hell on Wheels to Saturday nights.
After a successful third season in an unenviable Saturday night timeslot, AMC has decided to green-light its Western drama Hell on Wheels for a new, fourth season. And there's more good news for fans of Cullen Bohannon: the outlaw's adventures will expand, as AMC has ordered 13 episodes for season four, three more than the traditional 10-episode order.
"John Wirth and his team on both sides of the camera delivered a remarkable third season and Hell on Wheels fans responded. We are so proud of this show and congratulate everyone who has contributed to its success," said AMC president Charlie Collier. "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."
