|Halt and catch fire renewed for season 3|
|"AMC RENEWS "HALT AND CATCH FIRE" FOR THIRD SEASON|
NEW YORK, NY October 8, 2015 AMC today announced that it has ordered a third season of "Halt and Catch Fire," a show that garnered significant critical acclaim in its second season, which shifted focus from building a personal computer to online gaming and communication and the early days of what would become the Internet. Co-creators and writers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers have been upped to showrunners for the 10-episode third season, which will return to AMC next summer. The series will also debut on AMC Global channels around the world.
"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."
Cantwell and Rogers said: "We are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to continue telling this story. '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 that 'Halt' 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 renewed for a second season by AMC|
|Until recently, prospects weren't good for AMC's Halt and Catch Fire. The drama, about a group of misfits attempting to clone IBM computer technology in the 1980s, saw a dip in ratings, and renewal wasn't certain. But it appears AMC is willing to gamble on the series: the show has been renewed for a second season.|
"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," AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement.
Halt and Catch Fire averaged 1.2 million viewers over the course of its first season, which you might compare to the 1.8 million average of last year's Low Winter Sun, an AMC series that was ignominiously canceled after one season. Critics, however, have been more charitable to HACF, and, anecdotally at least, it's picked up a more dedicated fan base. There may still be time for it to blossom in popularity. source
