The sad news today is simple: “Hell on Wheels” season 4 is over. We’re going to be waiting for close to a year in order to see what comes next for the show, but before saying goodbye here for the fall, we are going to have a few more stories over the coming days.
We begin today with this new video below via AMC, which features stars Anson Mount, Jake Weber, and Colm Meaney discussing some of the events of the finale alongside executive producer John Wirth and others. “Further West” was clearly a game-changer for the series, as we learned first and foremost here that Mount’s Cullen Bohannon is no longer in Wyoming. He has brought his skills over to California, where he is in part looking for his wife Naomi and his child.
Is there something more to this motivation for rejoining the railroad, though? Based on what Wirth and Mount say here, it clearly feels that way. This sort of pull has been at the crux of season 4, and it looks like Cullen will still struggle with it, even with a different railroad and a Chinese labor force that feels like a completely different world for him.
Another highlight of this video? Watching Meaney and Weber discuss what has to be one of the greatest fight scenes ever produced on the show, as these two comically had it out in the mud over a deed to Chicken Hill. This gave us further insight into Campbell’s brain, and how much he feels like he succeeded now with Mickey and company out of Cheyenne.
