Season 2 of AMC Network's modern western series Hell on Wheels premiered last Sunday with Viva La Mexico, which ended with former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) about to be killed for his participation in a series of train robberies. This Sunday's episode Durant, Nebraska, finds Cullen in a desperate bid to escape, with former ally Elam Ferguson (Common) doing nothing to help the problem.
We recently caught up with both Common and Anson Mount in Calgary, Canada, as they finished up shooting this latest 8-episode season to find out what lies ahead. Watch and learn what happens next for our Western heroes.
Season two of Hell on Wheels continues the story of Cullen Bohannon, whose journey west is filled with turmoil and danger as he struggles to leave a troubled past behind. Centered on the treacherous traveling town that follows and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, the series examines the greed and corruption in man's constant fight for power.
