"Hell on Wheels" is the fifth of six original AMC series to go beyond the "freshman" season. The season finale is set or January 15th.

Since then, they've squashed their beef. Angelou says, “I don’t think the word 'disappointment' quite makes it. I was surprised. I know Common is brilliant. He may, in fact, be close enough to be called a genius. I’m not sure. I know that we’re all in process, and young artists are in process.”
