NEW YORK — AMC announced today that it renewed its original Western drama "Hell on Wheels" for an expanded fourth season. For its third season, "Hell on Wheels" was moved to Saturday — a day that AMC has traditionally devoted to classic Western films and television shows — and the show attracted a larger audience than it had in its second season on Sunday nights. In its third season, "Hell on Wheels" delivered an average audience of 3.3 million viewers, live and with three days of time shifting.

"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 Charlie Collier, AMC president. "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."

The season four renewal is for 13 episodes, following 10 hours in each of its first three seasons. "Hell on Wheels" will return to AMC next summer.

Executive produced by showrunner John Wirth ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "Falling Skies," "The Cape"), Mark Richard and Jeremy Gold, EVP of Creative Affairs, Endemol Studios, and starring Anson Mount, Colm Meaney, and Common, Hell on Wheels was developed by Endemol USA. The series is produced by leading independent studio, Entertainment One (eOne) and Nomadic Pictures. eOne's Television CEO John Morayniss and EVP US scripted television Michael Rosenberg oversee production in partnership with co-producers Mike Frislev and Chad Oakes from Nomadic Pictures.
