"Hell on Wheels," AMC's creatively struggling sophomore that came perilously close to getting a one-way ticket to Cancelville, just got a third season, the network announced.

Of greater note, perhaps, this: It also got a new showrunner, John Wirth, a veteran with a long list of credits on the major networks ("Nash Bridges," "The District," "Terminator: The Sarah Connors Chronicle.") Just to read between the lines here, expect major changes next season, though Anson Mount of course remains as the lead.
