Yahoo! TV has revealed a series of exclusive photos from Season 3 of AMC’s Hell on Wheels. The well-received Western series is set in the immediate years after the US Civil War and is centered upon the Union Pacific’s efforts to build a westward transcontinental railroad. Within a number of dramatic narrative arcs, the show offers an opportunity to reflect upon such issues as the expansion of the American nation-state, Indigenous territorial rights, race relations, social class and the spread of industrial technology.
Anchoring a strong ensemble cast, Anson Mount plays Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier initially drawn to the construction project on a revenge mission but who becomes bound up in the efforts to complete the railway.
Of note in the collection of Season 3 photos is the character of Louise Ellison (played by Jennifer Ferrin), a female journalist who has come to the “end of track” to report on the railway project. In the first image in the set, Ferrin sits to the left of actress Robin McLeavy, who plays Eva. The collection of photos can be found at this link: HoW S3 Pics .
Season 3 of AMC’s Hell on Wheels debuts on Saturday, August 10th with a two-hour premiere.
