Anna Chlumsky is joining AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire” for its fourth and final season.

The “Veep” actress will play chief ontologist Dr. Katie Herman, who will be a central figure in the drama series’ final 10-episode run.

“From day one on set, Anna has brought a wonderful new energy to the show, that both complements and somehow even further elevates the work of our core ensemble,” series creator and showrunner Christopher C. Rogers said in a statement.

“Anna brings a remarkable depth of personal experience and intention to this role, and we feel incredibly lucky to add an actress of her caliber to our palette even as we bring the series-long story of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ to a close,” Rogers continued.

Christopher Cantwell, who is also a creator and showrunner, said that the team is “honored” to have Chlumsky join the cast.

“She’s transformed the character of Katie into something truly special, and it’s quite a privilege to have such incredible talent bring this integral role to life,” Cantwell said. “We can’t wait to share her work this season with our viewers.

“Halt and Catch Fire,” which chronicles the birth of the internet in the 1980s, stars Lee Pace (Joe MacMillan), Mackenzie Davis (Cameron Howe), Scoot McNairy (Gordon Clark), Kerry Bishé (Donna Clark) and Toby Huss (John Bosworth). The fourth and final season airs this summer.

Chlumsky, who is repped by Innovative Artists and Liebman Entertainment, has earned four Emmy nominations for playing Amy Brookheimer on HBO’s “Veep.”
