A few months ago AMC’s period drama ‘Hell on Wheels‘ found itself in dire straits, as despite a season 3 renewal, showrunner Josh Shiban and co-creators/executive producers Joe and Tony Gayton were announced to depart the series. A third season of the acclaimed drama was put on hold until ‘Falling Skies‘ vet John Wirth signed on to helm the series, putting it back on track to debut this summer. So, who’s the first major new character to sign on for ‘Hell on Wheels’ season 3?

Now that ‘Hell on Wheels’ season 3 has officially gotten back on track for a summer 2013 release, the period AMC drama has rolled onward with its first major addition. According to TVLine, ‘The Following‘ star Jennifer Ferrin has signed on as a series regular for the new batch of episodes, playing witty and flirtatious journalist Louise Ellison.

Described as strong, independent, and a champion of women’s rights, Ellison operates out of the New York Sun covering the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, imbuing her journalistic work with a strong sense of human emotion.

No official date has yet been issued for ‘Hell on Wheels’ season 3 return, though after the shocking events of season 2 finale “Blood Moon Rising,” we’re anticipating a big leap forward  in the series’ narrative. Tell us what you want to see from ‘Hell on Wheels’ season 3 in the comments!
