John Wirth Set As Showrunner Of 'Hell On Wheels', Series To Proceed With Third Season

Deadline:
The power vacuum at the top of AMC‘s Hell On Wheels has been filled. Veteran John Wirth has been tapped as executive producer/showrunner of the the Western drama. With him on board, the series, from Entertainment One, Endemol USA and Nomadic Pictures, is back on track with a third season renewal, and will proceed with production on 10 new episodes to premiere in third quarter of 2013. Wirth’s start date is undetermined as he is wrapping up his services on TNT’s Falling Skies where he has been working as consultant. “As we gear up for season three of Hell On Wheels we are pleased to have such an accomplished showrunner as John Wirth join our team,” said Susie Fitzgerald, AMC’s SVP of scripted development and current programming. “With the help of our partners at Entertainment One, Endemol and Nomadic, we look forward to a new season of the poetic and pulpy adventures of Cullen Bohannan and the other characters as they build the railroad across the US.” (Hell on Wheels, John Wirth, TV)

I know a lot of people didn't care for the show but I was watching it and yes it could have used some help but maybe this is the help it needs. I didn't like the way it ended in the second season. They killed one of the main characters off and that was one I enjoyed watching.

Maybe this will help the show, maybe not...I'm going to give it another chance.

Yeah i didnt like how they killed that person at the end. This show will probably end up being a tragedy. I bet he die in the series finale. In some ways he reminds me John from Red Dead Redemption.

"wrapping up his services on TNT’s Falling Skies " ok now im considering the happy news ,falling skies is an ok show at most , i just watch it out of boredom , anyways the most important part is we got a season 3

Yes, I'm glad we got that season 3 to at least give us more of what happens to everyone. They at least need to finish up some story lines.
