Hell On Wheels, AMC's Western period drama, returns for its fourth season beginning Saturday, August 9. The premier episode is entitled "Comanche Moon." Season 4 will air in two parts. The first ten episodes will be shown consecutively until October 4, then the serial drama will take a break to make way for AMC's yearly FrightFest programming. The final three episodes will be shown beginning November 8.
Regarding the change to a Saturday night airing schedule, AMC's Joel Stillerman told Zap2it, "We're thrilled to bring back Hell On Wheels for another season. Its success on Saturday night reflects the strength and broad appeal of the show, ...We're excited about the stories we're telling in Season 4. The consequences of the stories we told last year will continue to reverberate throughout the season, and fans can expect to see some shocking events that will not only change the lives of our characters, but the landscape of the series as the railroad continues its relentless march westward."
According to the network, several new characters will be introduced in Season 4 including John Campbell (to be played by Jake Weber), an earnest law-and-order type who will be reassigned by President Grant to a post in Cheyenne, Wyoming, to keep Durant (played by Colm Meaney) in check. Another new character is Martin Delaney (to be played by David Wilson Barnes) who will be sent by Credit Mobilier, Durant's creditor, to replace Bohannon (played by Anson Mount) as chief engineer in the railroad.
Hell On Wheels is executive produced by John Wirth and stars Mount, Meaney, Common as Elam Ferguson, Robin McLeavy as Eva, Jennifer Ferrin as Louise Ellison, Phil Burke as Mickey, Kasha Kropinski as Ruth, Dohn Norwoods as Psalms, and Christopher Heyerdahl as "The Swede."
