AMC network has ordered 14 more episodes, to be split into two halves, in 2015 and 2016, just as it has done for Mad Men and Breaking Bad.
Deadline reports the current season is delivering an average of 3.4 million viewers in Live+3 to date, up a fraction from the Season 3 viewership of 3.3 million.
“With season five of Hell On Wheels, we are proud to bring our trans-continental journey to conclusion for the large, loyal audience that has traveled with Cullen Bohannon and his crew for so many years,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “We look forward to appropriately honoring Hell On Wheels in this final season.”
It airs in Australia on FX.
