AMC Renews “Hell On Wheels” With Common

AMC Renews "Hell On Wheels" With Common

In case you're a fan of Common and haven't been watching AMC's western series, you now have another chance since the network has renewed the series for another season.

Set after the Civil War during the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, with Common playing an ex-slave, the series deals with a former Conferderate soldier out for revenge against the Union soliders who killed his wife.

Though the show has not been getting the sort of ratings and audience numbers that AMC's smash hit horrow show The Walking Dead regularly gets, the show has done well enough, becoming the network's second highest rated series.
