Hell On Wheels

Frank Ockenfels/AMC

Raise hell indeed!

It's been a long summer waiting for our favorite brooding cowboy to return to our TVs, but Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) is back and damn does he look good.

We're just a few short weeks away from the season two premiere of AMC's epic post-Civil War drama Hell on Wheels. And if you aren't watching, well you should be. Cowboys, horses, gorgeous scenery and some fantastic drama, what's not to love?

And if this new season poster, of a hot gun-slinging cowboy with eyes that could pierce your soul, doesn't entice you to watch, well we don't know what will.

The new season of Hell on Wheels follows Bohannon back into the lawless traveling town. Old enemies, new alliances, and the struggle for power while building a route West will continue with a vengeance. And guns, lots of guns.

Between Cullen Bohannon's quest for retribution, Elam Ferguson's (Common) struggle for freedom, Lily Bell's (Dominique McElligott) resolve to survive in the West without her husband and Thomas Durant's (Colm Meaney) determination  to build a transcontinental railroad, the road West is paved in struggle and very good drama. And cowboys. Did we mention the hot brooding cowboys?

So drool over a dirty gun-wielding Anson Mount and set your DVRs. Season two of Hell on Wheels premieres Aug. 12 at 9 p.m.

Can't wait for the new season of Hell on Wheels? Dust off your cowboy hat and sound off in the comments!
