As Deadline reported this evening, AMC has officially picked up its hit series HELL ON WHEELS for a third season.

Showrunners, Joe and Tony Gayton, have also announced that they will not be returning as executive producers, choosing to opt out on the day-to-day doings of the show.

HELL ON WHEELS is a contemporary Western that centers on former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, portrayed by Anson Mount, whose quest for vengeance has led him to the Union Pacific Railroad's westward construction of the first transcontinental railroad. Developed by Endemol USA and produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Nomadic Pictures.

Shot on location in Alberta, Canada, the series is produced with assistance from the government of Alberta's film-development program.
