AMC Renews Halt and Catch Fire for Season 3

Halt and Catch Fire

While not many viewers tuned in, the praise given by critics and fans seems to have been enough for Halt and Catch Fire. The ’80s-set computer drama has been renewed for a 10-episode third season by AMC.

“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 AMC’s original programming/development president Joel Stillerman in a statement. “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.”

“We are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to continue telling this story,” Cantwell and Rogers added. “Halt and Catch Fire has been a passion project of ours from day one, and we are so thankful that AMC not only shares this passion, but also continues to champion bold character-driven storytelling in an increasingly crowded television landscape. While we know we would not be here were it not for the leadership and mentorship of former showrunner Jonathan Lisco, we’re incredibly excited to continue working with our wonderful producing partners at Gran Via, as well as our extremely talented cast and crew. Much in the way thatHalt is about underdogs  overcoming convention and breaking new ground, the story of Season 3 will endeavor to further stretch the medium and challenge the form.”

Halt and Catch Fire captures the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, focused on four main characters attempting to innovate against the changing backdrop of technology and Texas’ Silicon Prairie. The show stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishé, and Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe.

Season 3 of Halt and Catch Fire will premiere next summer on AMC.
