News & Interviews for Hell on Wheels: Season 5
Hell on Wheels has made its final stop, but a freeze-frame of where it pulled in would shine bittersweet light on a country moving full-speed ahead like a train in vain.
Hell on Wheels Season 5 was a strong last outing, from its new direction and characters to the conclusion of Cullen and the Swede's battle to making us continue to care about Cullen through all his ups and downs.
Durant further embodies a harbinger that darkly foreshadows the shape of the American political landscape and a post-truth Presidency.
Five seasons later, the series Hell On Wheels, has come to satisfying and bittersweet end with the completion of The Transcontinental Railroad.
Anson Mount as Cullen Bohannon, the onetime Rebel officer employed by the railroads, is the epitome of a Western star. He supplies his character the expected stoicism but also a range of emotions and conflicts.
Luckily, there's a few new faces to help play out the morality saga that is Cullen Bohannon's every waking moment of life.
Audience Reviews for Hell on Wheels: Season 5
Aug 05, 2020Seasons 1-4 were great; Season 5 is crap.
Jun 09, 2020This was a perfect last season. It connects the dots in all the right ways and completes the show's arch in a cathartic and satisfying way. This season makes the whole show feel surreal and mythical as if, instead of a TV show, you are watching an Old West legend playing out right before your eyes. Absolutely fantastic.
Dec 27, 2018Hell on Wheels really brought it for its final season. While I particularly enjoyed the final "battle" between Cullen and the Swede, the final few episodes also established a satisfying closure for Bohannon as well as Durant and the railroad itself.
Feb 26, 2018this show and season 5 are amazing. in the show it displays the west and the railroad. in the show you see how some of the people lived and met ens meat and how people were treated. in the beginning seasons it shoes how black were "free" but not really free. all the things like disease also people trying to kill poeple. the show has some very well shots of the land and it makes it seem kind of crazy on how it has changed. Indians are kind of played to be the bad guys in the show but that not even how it really was.
Dec 04, 2017Best show I have ever seen. Please continue with a season 6 or a spin off! I want more!! Please get rid of the Walking Dead!
Sep 02, 2017I don't think the show even looks like what it used to be. A episode or two is still good. Otherwise the only reason to watch is the series is almost over and I want to complete the show.
Jan 11, 2017Would have gotten 5 but the end of the show was extremely anti-climactic and SO predictable! ??
Aug 07, 2016Every season was a solid 5-star until season 5. Not sure what happened...Still fun and entertaining but it seems to have lost it's way a bit as it wraps up.
Jul 23, 2016Great series threw and threw! Great plot they in my opinion couldn't have chose a better cast and crew for this show. I couldn't be more pleased with the way things turned out on Hell on Wheels. This is one of those shows( like the Wire) that I will watch atleast once every two years
Jul 09, 2016This is a great story representing how dirty, difficult and amazing connecting the country was for everyone. And Cullen Bohannan is one of the best conflicted hero protagonists I've ever seen.
