AMC’s ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Sets Season 3 to Boot Up in August
AMC tech drama Halt and Catch Fire just made it to a third season, thanks to significant buzz from its second run improvement, and fans finally know when the series will reboot. Season 3 will arrive in August, moving from Texas to Silicon Valley with a double-premiere.
Per the network’s official confirmation, the Lee Pace-Mackenzie Davis-Scoot McNairy series will return on August 23, with not one, but two full hours. In addition to the full synopsis, check out the first photos above:
In the third season, which picks up in March 1986, Mutiny leaves Texas for the big leagues of Silicon Valley. Founders Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé) search for the idea that will launch Mutiny as a player, but new collaborators test their partnership. Gordon (Scoot McNairy) struggles to find a place within his wife’s company as Joe McMillan (Lee Pace) builds upon his empire, reinventing himself with a bold play that shocks the Valley and sends him back into the lives of his old partners.
In addition to Pace, McNairy, Bishé, Davis and Toby Huss as John Bosworth, the third season features Annabeth Gish as Diane Gould, a seasoned Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and Manish Dayal as Ryan Ray, a talented and ambitious programmer, in recurring roles.
We’ll surely see a trailer before long, but will Halt and Catch Fire finally … you know, catch fire in Season 3? Will we come right back to the edge for a fourth season renewal? Stay tuned for a full trailer.
