Floods Force 'Hell on Wheels' to Stop Production in Canada


Set of the AMC Western drama has been evacuated as floods hit the Calgary riverside, where the show is filmed.

Nothing can't fight the weather. Heavy rains have forced "Hell on Wheels" to stop its production in the middle of shooting the third season's sixth episode as the set in Calgary, Canada, is in danger of being damaged by floods.

The Bow and Highwood rivers, not far from the filming location, have breached their banks. As a precaution, the producers decided on Thursday, June 19 to evacuate the set, with the crew and equipment moved to higher ground, Deadline reports.

The production is expected to resume in two days. However, there is a possibility that the AMC period Western drama series will only restart filming after the planned hiatus, which begins next Thursday, if the set gets damaged by floods and needs to be repaired. As of now, the floods haven't hit the set although the main road leading to it is under water.

"Hell on Wheels" is in production with John Wirth as the new executive producer/showrunner, replacing John Shiban. The new episodes are expected to air later this year.
