Hell On Wheels season 2 on Netflix July 27Are you ready for some Hell On Wheels?

Season 2 of Hell On Wheels… to be precise.

The epic, gritty (very), loosely-based on real life, story of a traveling town following the building of the railroad heading west in 1865 will return for season 3 on AMC starting Saturday, August 3, 2013.

Just before that happens though, season 2 will be released on Netflix.

The date? July 27th.

Season 1 has been on Netflix since last year.

Releasing a previous season the week before the new season premieres seems to be a standard relationship that Netflix has with AMC lately. We’ll be watching for season 3 of AMC’s The Walking Dead to hit Neflix about a week before its season 4 premiere on AMC in October (no exact date yet).

Ready for Cullen, Elam, Doc, Durrant, Lily and the others to hit Netflix?
