AMC Reveals Premiere Date for 'Halt and Catch Fire' Season 3
AMC's slow-burn period drama Halt and Catch Fire will return August 23 for its third season premiere.
Detailing the rise of the PC industry in the 1980s, the show is a fitting one for those who enjoyed fellow AMC period hit Mad Men. The season 3 premiere will debut with back-to-back episodesat 9 PM, and will return to its regular 10 PM slot from Tuesday, August 30.
Co-creators and writers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers were tapped as new showrunners when the series was picked up for a third season back in October, despite average ratings.
Season 3 picks up in March 1986 when 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. Scott McNairy, Lee Pace, and Toby Huss also star, and Annabeth Gish and Manish Dayal are set to recur in Season 3.
