Hell on Wheels just got renewed for a Season Two!

The announcement solidifies AMC’s successful track record for cultivating new, original programming, which includes critical darlings Mad Men and Breaking Bad, ratings juggernaut The Walking Dead and the American remake of the Scandinavian murder mystery The Killing. In fact, the only series AMC has launched that failed to receive an order for a second season was the super-dense conspiracy drama Rubicon.

The story of Hell on Wheels hinges on Cullen Bohannan (Anson Mount), who finds work on the railroad while chasing down the Union soldiers responsible for the murder of his wife and child. Cullen’s story is one of many converging on the titular makeshift town of Hell on Wheels, populated by a bevy of well-known and up-and-coming actors like Common (Smokin’ Aces, Wanted), Colm Meany (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Bel Ami, Tom Noonan (Heat), Wes Studi (Avatar), as well as Dominique McElligott (Moon) and Robin McLeavy (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) Christopher Heyerdahl (Twilight Saga, Sanctuary).
