It was the Saturday night experiment that worked: AMC has renewed Hell on Wheels for a fourth season.
As BuzzFeed has previously reported — in “Hell On Wheels” Has Thrived In TV’s Graveyard — AMC’s decision to shift the Western drama to Saturdays ended up boosting the show’s third season. On Thursday, the cable channel announced that it was renewing the show for a 13-episode season. (Its three previous seasons have been 10 episodes.) John Wirth was the showrunner for Hell on Wheels’ third season and will continue to be.
Season 4 of Hell on Wheels will premiere during summer 2014.
