‘Hell on Wheels’ Kicks Off ‘End of the Line’ in Final Season Trailer
Hell on Wheels fans have known for some time that the adventures of Cullen Bohannon would drive that final golden spike in 2016, and the closing stretch of track is officially before us. Now that we know when Hell on Wheels’ final seven episodes will premiere, so too do we have a look at the first trailer.
Beginning the first of seven final Hell on Wheels episodes on Saturday, June 11 at 9:00 P.M., AMC has released the first official ‘End of the Line’ footage as well. The premiere of Robert Redford’s The American West will follow immediately after, featuring interviews from James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Tom Selleck, Kiefer Sutherland, Mark Harmon, Ed Harris and more.
So reads the final season synopsis for Hell on Wheels:
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.
The end of the line begins on June 11, so get your Hell on Wheels affairs in order.
