Plot Summary

The Civil War is in the past, but former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount, Lost) can’t put it behind him. Fresh are the horrific memories of the death of his wife, killed at the hands of the Union soldiers setting Bohannon on a course of revenge.

The AMC Original Drama Hell on Wheels is an Emmy-nominated contemporary Western series that tells the story of Bohannon’s journey, a story that rides on Union Pacific’s construction of the first transcontinental railroad.

In Season 5, the final push to finish the road brings with it a reckoning for Bohannon and the men standing in his path: the bloodthirsty Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl, The Twilight Saga); the mercenary Chang (Byron Mann, Arrow), and the rapacious Thomas Durant (Golden Globe-nominated Colm Meaney, Star Trek).

Cullen contends with corruption, greed and murder as he leads 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 the golden spike remains in question — with no one more at risk than Cullen Bohannon.
