AMC’s hit western, Hell on Wheels, brings the Wild West to San Diego Comic-Con with a steam locomotive. The trolly is decorated like a 19th  century train, and is wrapped to resemble pre-electric transportation. The complete second season Blu-Ray and DVD hit stores on July 16th, so you have plenty of time to catch up before the season 3 premiere on August 10th.


Hell On Wheels Season 3 Premieres on AMC on August 10th

The HELL ON WHEELS locomotive will steam its way into town for SDCC, and will be on the rails until August 4.  Aside from generating buzz for the series, which is produced by eOne Television, it supports THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, which hits blu-ray and DVD on July 16 in two extras-laden collector’s editions, as well as Season Three of the series which is scheduled for a special 2-hour Season Premiere on Aug. 10, 9/8c. Hell on Wheels stars Anson Mount as former confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, who is struggling to escape his demons from the recently fought Civil War. Colm Meaney stars as Thomas “Doc” Durant, a greedy entrepreneur taking full advantage of the changing times, and musician/actor Common is Elam Ferguson, an emancipated slave working to achieve true freedom in a world entrenched in prejudice. Hell on Wheels received a 2012 Emmy nomination for outstanding original main title theme music. Centered on the lawless town known as Hell on Wheels that travels with and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, the series examines the railroad’s institutionalized greed and corruption, the immigrant experience and the plight of the newly emancipated African-Americans during reconstruction. Hell on Wheels’ second season wrapped in October with an average of 2.4 million viewers and 3.2 million viewers with Live plus 7.
