'Hell On Wheels' Season 3: Exclusive First Look At AMC Show's Character Portraits

AMC's Hell On Wheels was greenlit for a 3rd season earlier this year and the wait to catch a first glimpse of it is finally over.

Celebuzz has the exclusive first look at the character portraits from the upcoming season, which premieres next month.

The western drama focuses on the construction of the first transcontinental railroad ,which is referred to as "hell on wheels." In the beginning, we were introduced to former confederate soldier, Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount), who seeks revenge towards union soldiers who killed his family.

The immense destruction caused by The Sioux at the end of Season 2 left us wondering what the future holds for the town. What's next for Thomas "Doc" Durant (Colm Meaney) now that he's been locked up? Will Sean (Ben Esler) and Ruth (Kasha Kropinski) rekindle their love? Will Elam (Common) and Eva's (Robin McLeavy) relationship continue? Lastly, did the Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl) escape death?

We're begging for answers! Season 3 introduces new beginnings that mirror huge roles in today's society. Plot lines to be expected throughout the new season include racism, greed and -- you guessed it -- murder.

Make sure to catch the special 2-hour premiere of Season 3 on August 10 at 9/8c on AMC.

For now, check out the gallery above for exclusive new photos of the cast.

    Hi. I don't know if you saw Season 2 of Hell on Wheels but Ruth was never in love with Sean. Ruth and Joseph Black Moon were in a relationship and were in love. Not Sean. Sean stalked Ruth throughout Season 2, not taking her rejection of him - no - for an answer. In fact, he became creepy dangerous, sneaking up on her at night. Just to get it straight, Joseph Black Moon was Ruth's love interest. Sean McGinnes is nothing but a sick stalker obsessed with making Ruth his.
