AMC's Hell on Wheels is moving from Sundays to Saturdays for its upcoming third season. The Western series, which stars Common, will return August 3rd, and AMC is looking to make weekends a special destination for Western fans by adding Hell on Wheels to their usual Western-themed programming on Saturdays. "A new episode of Hell on Wheels on Saturday night after a full day of Western fan favorites is going to be like the saddle on top of the horse," Charlie Collier, AMC's President and General Manager, said in a statement.

The third season of Hell on Wheels will be its first without creators Joe and Tony Gayton. The brothers left their roles as executive producers after last season, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles executive producer John Wirth has taken over as showrunner.
