What do you do when Union soldiers kill your wife? Naturally, you focus every ion of your being on hunting them down and killing them. That's exactly what prompts former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon to take up a little side-work building the first transcontinental railroad.

Hell on Wheels is AMC's newest entry into original programming. Featuring Anson Mount as Bohannon and a cast of phenomenal character actors, including the likes of Colm Meaney, Dominique McElligott, and Common, the show follows Bohannon shooting his way through grifters, thieves and low-lives on his quest for revenge.

Hell on Wheels premieres this Sunday, November 6, at 10/9 C — only on AMC.
