AMC has renewed period drama Halt & Catch Fire fourth and final season. The pick-up, which is for a further ten episodes, comes shortly before the two-hour season three finale is set to air on the network.
Halt & Catch Fire captures the rise of the PC era in the 1980s and focuses on four main characters attempting to innovate against the changing backdrop of technology. The drama series is produced by AMC Studios and stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishe and Toby Huss.
Series co-creators and showrunners Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers will continue with the show, concluding the story they began in 2014. “It has been our great privilege to watch the world of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ expand and mature in that time, powered by our incredible cast, our exceptional crew, our absurdly talented writers, and our producing partners at Gran Via, all of whom have come to feel like our family,” Cantwell and Rogers said. “In this fourth and final season, we are excited to end the show on its own terms and to give our story, these characters, and our fans the conclusion they so richly deserve.”
“We are so proud of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ – a true passion project – and thank the critics and fans who have embraced this unique program”, added Charlie Collier, President of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “Congratulations and thanks to creators and showrunners Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and to Halt’s enormously talented writing team, producers, cast and crew. It is our great pleasure to renew this project for a fourth and final season, so we can all tune in to see if Cameron, Donna and the rest of the gang turn Swap Meet into eBay, Amazon or Facebook.”
