RENEWED – Halt And Catch Fire – Season 2
AMC have renewed their tech drama Halt and Catch Fire for a second season.
While the first season didn’t get the viewers it was hoping for, AMC have faith in it.
“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience,” said AMC president, Charlie Collier, in a press release. “We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time. We see that opportunity here and look forward to a second season of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ from creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, and showrunner Jonathan Lisco.”
Halt and Catch Fire is set in the early 1980s, where it dramatizes the personal computing boom through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time. Their personal and professional partnership will be challenged by greed and ego while charting the changing culture in Texas’ Silicon Prairie.
It’s lead actors are Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis and Kerry Bishe
