Hell on Wheels isn't just getting renewed. It's getting super-sized!

The AMC period drama has been picked up for a 13-episode fourth season, which will air on Saturdays. In contrast, the first three seasons of the series consisted of just 10 episodes each. AMC moved the series, which stars Anson Mount and Common, to Saturdays in Season 3, when the series also transitioned to a new showrunner, John Wirth.

Season 4 of Hell on Wheels will debut next summer.

"John Wirth and his team on both sides of the camera delivered a remarkable third season and Hell On Wheels fans responded. We are so proud of this show and congratulate everyone who has contributed to its success," AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement. "AMC has served passionate Western fans for three decades, so it is particularly gratifying to see these viewers capping off their Saturdays with an original Western on what has historically been a tough night of the week for television. Our commitment to the genre is unwavering and we look forward to continuing to super-serve this audience with an expanded fourth season of Hell on Wheels."
