Season 5

Starring Anson Mount and Colm Meaney, Hell on Wheels examines the institutionalized greed and corruption behind the building of America's Transcontinental Railroad as loyalties are abandoned and the race between the Central Pacific and Union Pacific lines intensifies.

In Season 5, Cullen Bohannon (Mount) finds himself a stranger in a strange land - the mountain town of Truckee, California, home to the Central Pacific Railroad. This rough railroad town teems with thousands of Chinese workers, foreign in language, culture and traditions.

Despite the challenges of corralling his new workforce, Cullen leads the Herculean effort to tunnel through the Sierra Nevada Mountains, sometimes achieving only inches a day in the race to complete the first Transcontinental Railroad.

Hell on Wheels is executive produced by showrunner John Wirth (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Falling Skies, The Cape); Paul Kurta (Veronica Mars, Empire Records); Michael Rosenberg (Hung); and Jeremy Gold, EVP Creative Affairs, for Endemol Shine Studios.

Entertainment One Television's (eOne) Debra Curtis, SVP Current Programming, and David Shafer, VP Production, oversee production in partnership with producers Mike Frislev and Chad Oakes from Nomadic Pictures.

In addition to Mount and Meaney, Hell on Wheels stars Christopher Heyerdahl, Robin McLeavy, Jennifer Ferrin, Phil Burke and Dohn Norwood, and welcomes new series regulars Tim Guinee, Chelah Horsdal, Reg Rogers, Byron Mann and Angela Zhou.
