AMC’s Fire isn’t going out any time soon.
The network announced Tuesday that it has renewed tech drama Halt and Catch Fire for a second season, which will premiere next summer.
“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground — themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience,” AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement. “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 of Halt and Catch Fire from creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, and showrunner Jonathan Lisco.”
Set in the early 1980s, Halt and Catch Fire stars Lee Pace and chronicles the rise of the PC era in Texas’ Silicon Prairie. The show’s first season wrapped up earlier this month.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue telling this story. Our series about creation, innovation, and taking bold risks wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for our partners at AMC, a network known for these very things,” Lisco, Cantwell and Rogers said in a statement. “Harnessing the momentum of our first season, this next chapter will take the rich characters our audience has come to love in new and surprising directions.”
