Good new for AMC's Hell on Wheels: According to Vulture, the network has opted to renew the series for a third season, which will consist of ten episodes. Though this news isn't particularly surprising, as the show has high ratings, a lot of buzz, and critical acclaim, it's still good to have confirmation. 

Hell on Wheels just wrapped up it's second season on AMC last month.
