Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season Now Available on DVD and Blu-ray

hell-on-wheels-season-3-dvd-325Before Season 4 of Hell on Wheels premieres on AMC on August 2nd, home viewers can catch up on all the frontier action and drama with Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season, now available on DVD and Blu-ray from Entertainment One.

Credited for helping to modernize the Western genre, Hell on Wheels tells the epic story of post-Civil War America. The lavishly-produced series documents the railroad’s engineering and construction, as well as institutionalized corruption, the immigrant experience, and the plight of emancipated African-Americans during Reconstruction. Chronicling this turning point in our nation’s history, Hell on Wheels shows how uncivilized the business of civilization can be.

The series focuses on former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount), who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who killed his wife. Cullen’s journey takes him west to Hell on Wheels, a dangerous, raucous, lawless melting pot town that travels with and services the westward construction of the first transcontinental railroad. In Season 3, following the Indian attack that destroyed the railroad settlement, Cullen spends a long winter reshaping his lust for revenge into a burning ambition: to take control of the Union Pacific and drive it across the country.

The Season 3 cast includes Mount, Common, Colm Meaney, Christopher Heyerdahl, Jennifer Ferrin, Robin McLeavy, Ben Esler, Phil Burke, Kasha Kropinski, and Dohn Norwood. Bonus features on Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season include:
