Halt and Catch Fire has been renewed!
Set in the world of the early 80s as the PC and online gaming was just coming into existence, Halt and Catch Fire explores the passion of those who helped make it commonplace. Now that journey can continue, as AMC announced a 10-episode renewal of the series for 2016.
At the end of Halt and Catch Fire Season 2, everything we know about the show was tossed up into the air. Literally, because almost every central character was on a plane set to dig into the world of online gaming and what will become social networking in sunny California.
"We love what the creative team and cast have been able to deliver on Halt and Catch Fire and are particularly grateful to the critics and fans who supported the show throughout the second season and have been pulling for its renewal," said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.
"We’re so thankful for the talent and leadership of Jonathan Lisco over these first two seasons and glad that we are able to continue this story with co-creators and showrunners Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers at the helm. In a world of TV series filled with scary, mythical creatures like zombies and dragons, we’re thrilled to be able to follow these characters to Silicon Valley and finally bring unicorns to television."
The series stars Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark and Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe. It's quite a unique little gem, and if you haven't watched it, you're in luck.
