'Hell on Wheels' picked up for season 2

AMC’s hit Western drama will be back for another season.

The network announced Tuesday that their popular new series is officially on for another round. The railroad drama is the second-highest rated series on AMC, after zombie fest “The Walking Dead.”

“Hell on Wheels,” set in the post-Civil War era, stars Anson Mount as a former Confederate soldier and rap artist Common playing a former slave. The two men work together on the first transcontinental railroad amidst the chaos of the changing country.

The first season finale airs January 15 at 10 p.m. ET.

    This show is wonderful and really hope it will continue for a 4th season. Tired of all the reality shows and love this wholesome show.

    I'm glad it will be back. The Swede is the best character on this show.

    WD is so much better. Plus more realistic.

    Deadwood was by far a superior show. Everything about it – the acting, writing, directing, the sets and the language, OMG the language. It was the perfect combination of meaning and emotion delivered with relish. David Milch cursed himself by not finishing his masterpiece.

    I'm glad to hear this show is getting a second season. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not initially but I've found I've really become invested in the characters and story-line as it goes on. It's a really well done series. I really appreciate that it's not chock-full of constant foul language like Deadwood was on HBO too (while there were things I liked about that show, the constant unnecessary over use of it really had me turning the channel more often than not)...there's some of that in this series, but it's pretty appropriate when it's thrown in.

      LOL, I'm opposite of you on that one. Not into zombie shows at all so can't get into WD, but I have friends who just love it.
