AMC goes back to ‘Hell’

Period drama coming back for third season

AMC has renewed drama “Hell on Wheels” for a third season of 10 episodes.

“Hell” aired from November to January in its first season, then moved to an August premiere for season two. Season three has not been scheduled on the calendar.
