The mid-season premiere of the final season of AMC's "Hell on Wheels" airs Saturday, June 11th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the brand new episode, "Two Soldiers," the Swede's murderous rampage on the Hatch homestead results in a long overdue showdown with Cullen.
The last seven episodes of "Hell on Wheels" is the end of the line for Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and his work on America's first transcontinental railroad. The final push to finish brings with it a reckoning for Bohannon and the men standing in his path: the bloodthirsty Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl); the mercenary Chang (Byron Mann); and the rapacious Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney). Bohannon contends with corruption, greed and murder as he leads the trek to complete the final stages of the building of the railroad from the Central Pacific through the Sierras and across the Utah desert to Promontory Point. While the railroad's completion is certain, who and what will survive when the golden spike is finally planted remains in question - with no one more at risk than Cullen Bohannon.
In the wake of war, an outlaw is born on the debut episode of AMC's newest limited series, "The American West," airing Saturday, June 11th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the premiere episode, "America Divided" - executive produced by Robert Redford and Stephen David, and directed by John Ealer - Jesse James forms a gang in order to ensure his family's survival. Custer looks for glory in the Indian Wars. Crazy Horse fights back against the US.
Spanning the years 1865 to 1890, "The American West," will show how - in the aftermath of the Civil War - the United States transforms into the "land of opportunity." Viewers will be transported into the violent world of cowboys, Indians, outlaws and law men. The 8-episode limited event series chronicles the personal, little-known stories of Western legends such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. The series features exclusive interviews with notable names from classic Western films, including Redford, James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Tom Selleck, Kiefer Sutherland, Mark Harmon, Ed Harris and more.
An all new episode of AMC's "Preacher" airs Sunday, June 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the third episode, "The Possibilities" - written by Chris Kelley and directed by Scott Winant - Jesse explores his newfound power with Cassidy's help. Armed with new information, Tulip tries to convince Jesse to set out for revenge. Critics continue to rave about the series, including Sara Stewart of the New York Post who said, "Hallelujah - it is good" and "'Preacher' will revive your faith in comic-book fare."
Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's popular '90's comic book franchise of the same name, "Preacher" is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("This Is the End," "Superbad," "Neighbors") and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad"). "Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Joseph Gilgun, as Cassidy, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface, and Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck.
