The host network for the television Western, Hell on Wheels, has provided a launch date for the show’s second season. AMC has announced that Hell on Wheels will premiere its second season on Sunday, August 12th. The second season will run for 10 episodes.
The show portrays the building of the US transcontinental railroad in a post-Civil War West. The lead character, a former Confederate soldier named Cullen Bohannon, initially arrives at the mobile construction town named “Hell on Wheels” to seek revenge for the death of his wife and son by Union soldiers during the Civil War. Bohannon (played by Anson Mount) will gain the position of foreman and interacts at various levels with a number of characters either involved in or reacting to the building of railroad westward.
