"We're thrilled to bring Hell on Wheels back for another season. Its success on Saturday night reflects the strength and broad appeal of the show, and we're incredibly excited to share the continuation of this story with the millions of loyal Hell On Wheels fans."

Look for civilization to continue heading west along with the railroad on Season 4, with the most important railroad hub in the country at the center of conflict.

"We’re excited about the stories we’re telling in season four," said series executive producer and showrunner, John Wirth. "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."
