AMC’s ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Renewed for Final Season in 2017
Despite its reputation as one of TV’s best, if least-seen dramas, Halt & Catch Fire is officially coming to a … well, halt. AMC has doused the fire with an official Season 4 renewal for 2017, albeit intended as the computer drama’s last.
AMC made the announcement late Monday evening, just one day before the show’s third season finale. The fourth run will consist of 10 episodes, designed to “write the series focused on the dawn of the computer industry in the 1980s in Texas and California to conclusion.” Says AMC:
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. 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.
Adds Cantwell and Rogers:
First off, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to have a creative partner in AMC that has nurtured us from new writers into showrunners over these past three seasons. 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. 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.
You can catch the two-part finale tomorrow night, but is four seasons too soon to say goodbye to Halt & Catch Fire? What might AMC come to replace it with?
