AMC’s western TV show is coming to an end.

AMC have stated that the next season of Hell on Wheels will be it’s last.

This contemporary Western follows a former Confederate soldier named Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount). Following the rape and murder of his wife at the hands of Union soldiers, Cullen sets out to exact revenge on them. His journey takes him west to the mobile town called “Hell on Wheels,” a dangerous, raucous, and lawless melting pot. It travels with and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, an engineering feat unprecedented for its time. Cullen is ultimately torn between the cycle of revenge he has unleashed over his wife’s death and his tiring of this violence.
