The best modern Western on the air that is actually wholesome yet blunt in reminding us what it took to make America a country built on the hard working backs of ALL people a wonderful place to live. WE ARE America!!! It would be such a loss to lose such a great show.

It just like AMC to only show 7episodes this year than make ever one wording when your bring on the last 7 episodes if you don't just drop it like all the good shows ever time it a good show on you end up dropping it and never till why your doing it just like Longmire just stop showing it and never told why it was drop you put on a good show and after 5 or 8 episodes you don't show any episodes for a year than you just up and stop playing it. its not much on to watch as it is and here you want to take one of the best shows off tv hell on wheels needs to stay on so come on AMC we don't want to see a nutter reality show

I am so sad this show is being cancelled. The best cast and just a good down to earth show. Please produce another series using Anson Mount. I knew it had to end soon but I have not missed one show since it aired. I loved it. Very disappointed to see it go. You feel like you know the characters in person. Everyone loves it from West Virginia. I hope to see more of these series. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAD A PART IN THIS WONDERFUL SHOW.

Good riddance ,, Like most great shows, Hell on Wheels started going down hill the last seasons.,,Colin was hell bent on finding the killers of his wife...Then he became obsessed with being a railroad man ,, ok,, that might be believable,, but what about working with the black crew as a laborer? ,,,,that might be believable,, but working with your gun on??? naw... but what was pathetic was the way Cullin being a farmer seemed to know how to build a steam shovel!!!! ,,,then watching the steam shovel working was almost to much to bear,,, the writers must have no clue how those machines worked,,, then being able to kill a man without batting an eye ,,, he couldn't shoot a man about to kill him in a show down in the street (he charges the guy!!! this was the guy that killed the boy by burning down the church!!!!! Come on,, Cullen would have killed him on sight! Then does anyone think Cullin would not have saved the preacher lady from hanging? The show went from a justice seeking gun fighter, to a corny soap opera!

very, very disappointing! Don't understand why there are wonderful shows like this, that are very entertaining and worth watching, especially with a great story line, then after a few seasons, you take it off?? How long did Bonanza and Gunsmoke last??? Seriously? Loved Army Wives, then they took it off. How many people could related to this stuff. Sad, very sad. Thanks for thinking of us! (not)

Really!! splitting 14 episodes into two years!!!! Heck if you didn't have sooooooo many commercials it could be done in 7 episodes instead of 14 anyway. Love this show and Anson Mount. Why is it ya'll end the good shows westerns and keep the junk shows?

Glad it's coming back but why already limit the series to only 1 more season? Not a lot of westerns on TV. This fills a gap with great episodes.
