Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.

2014, AMC, 13 episodes

Critics Consensus: Hell on Wheels' third outing teases an exciting new direction for its characters but unfortunately loses locomotion in the end, leaving its characters stuck in a stranded narrative boxcar.

2013, AMC, 10 episodes

Critics Consensus: While it still feels like it's finding its legs, the second season of Hell on Wheels is more confident than the first and perfectly acceptable for those in need of a Western fix.

2012, AMC, 10 episodes

Critics Consensus: Its Old West setting and central revenge plot may be overly familiar, but Hell on Wheels holds just enough intrigue to keep things interesting.

2011, AMC, 10 episodes
