Despite what the fiery and violent Season 2 finale might have led viewers to believe, AMC isn't finished with Hell on Wheels: The revenge Western has been renewed for a 10-episode third season.
It's August, which means we're heading toward the end of the summer (I know, I know; I'm sorry) and, when it comes to television, starting to prepare for the 2012 Fall Season rolling out next month. Except at least one show is getting a jump on everyone else by starting early - and cable channels have a few interesting offerings on show, as well. Here's some things you should replace the Olympics-shaped hole in your heart with later this month.
AMC has announced summer return dates for the critically acclaimed drama Breaking Bad and the Western Hell on Wheels.
