The fresh western is working: AMC has given a second season order to Hell on Wheels, its post-Civil War drama.
The freshman series premiered to 4.4 million viewers on Nov. 6. Granted, the show had an even bigger lead-in from The Walking Dead (6.3 million), but hey — every little bit helps. That was the first time AMC has been able to use its highest rated show to launch another series.
So far, only seven episodes of Wheels have aired, with the eighth prepared to bow on Jan. 1.
News of the pickup was first reported by Deadline.
