Hell on Wheels follows the story of a Confederate solider (Anson Mount) who is out for vengeance in a post-Civil War era America. The series also stars Common, Dominique McElligott, Colm Meaney, Ben Esler, Phil Burke, Eddie Spears and Tom Noonan.

Hell on Wheels premiered on November 6. It has aired seven episodes out its full first season with episode eight to air on January 1, according to Deadline.

AMC executive Owen Shiflett called the series a modern Western story.

"It's just a modern thriller set in the west," he said. "I think the audiences are ready for it with the release of True Grit."

Common recently revealed that he took the role of a freed slave because of the challenge.
