The second season of AMC’s tech drama Halt & Catch Fire will receive its UK premiere on Amazon Prime Instant Video UK on Tuesday June 2nd, with further episodes being released every Tuesday.
Halt & Catch Fire is set in the early 1980s and tells the story of 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 partnerships are challenged by greed and ego while charting the changing culture in Texas’ Silicon Prairie. The cast includes Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Rio Davis, Kerry Bishe, Toby Huss and David Wilson Barnes.
The show’s second season picks up in 1985 and centers on the rise of Mutiny, Cameron and Donna’s start-up company that is built upon the most disruptive idea of the modern era—the Internet. At the same time, Joe, Gordon and Bosworth (Toby Huss) will be caught up in their own “online” wave, remaking the tech landscape all around them, as they attempt to heal old wounds and deal with the fallout of season one.
