AMC’s ‘Hell on Wheels’ Sets Final ‘End of the Line’ Premiere for June
No amount of railroad puns will stop Hell on Wheels from reaching the end of the line, now that a June premiere has been set for its final seven episodes. Not only that, but fans can also check out the premiere of Robert Redford’s The American West immediately after.
The last seven episodes of “Hell on Wheels” is the end of the line for Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and his work on America’s first transcontinental railroad. The final push to finish brings with it a reckoning for Bohannon and the men standing in his path: the bloodthirsty Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl); the mercenary Chang (Byron Mann); and the rapacious Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney).
Bohannon contends with corruption, greed and murder as he leads the trek to complete the final stages of the building of the railroad from the Central Pacific through the Sierras and across the Utah desert to Promontory Point. While the railroad’s completion is certain, who and what will survive when the golden spike is finally planted remains in question — with no one more at risk than Cullen Bohannon.
Immediately after will see the premiere of eight-part docu-series The American West, executive produced by Robert Redford, and featuring interviews from Redford, James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Tom Selleck, Kiefer Sutherland, Mark Harmon, Ed Harris and more.
Will the final episodes of Hell on Wheels come to a dead halt, or lay further ground for Cullen Bohannon someday? Find out on June 11.
