Hell on Wheels Season 8 – Has it Ended?

Hell on Wheels Season 8

Hell on Wheels is a canon event-inspired series that follows the story of the construction of the transcontinental railroad in the United States. Created by Joe and Tony Gayton, the show ran for six seasons and concluded after the sixth one.

Since its conclusion in 2016, fans have been quite curious to know how things would unfold in the future seasons, so it isn’t surprising that many fans have been wondering about the show’s return with Season 7 and eventually Season 8 as well.

This article will take you along with more information about Hell on Wheels Season 8 and if there are possibilities for the show’s return.

When is Hell on Wheels Season 8 Releasing?

Hell on Wheels premiered on AMC in 2011 and the show eventually ended in 2016 after six successful seasons.

Now, although the creators have ensured that the show ended with a proper conclusion and the farewell that each character deserved. That has not appeased the fans though, who seem to be quite curious to know how things would have transpired in the new seasons.

The end of the show has come as a surprise for many fans but the creators have confirmed that the show is not coming back. In case the show returns in the future, there are chances that things won’t be as smooth as people were expecting initially.

Some fans are still hopeful about an eventual return but we’d have to damper the thoughts because the show isn’t returning in the future.

What can we expect from Hell on Wheels Season 8?

If Hell on Wheels is renewed for a seventh season, it is likely to continue to follow the story of Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount), a former Confederate soldier who is now working on the construction of the transcontinental railroad. Bohannon is seeking revenge for the death of his wife and son, who were killed by Union soldiers during the Civil War.

Besides exploring Bohannon’s story, there were a lot of other plotlines that the creators could have explored in the show, including the completion of the transcontinental railroad and the impact it had on the American West.

Also, the rise of the industries along the west following the completion of the construction would have been a good addition to the plot. But, as the show has come to an end, none of those plots will come to life.
