AMC has renewed “Halt and Catch Fire” for a fourth and final season, the network announced on Monday.
The series will return for one final 10-episode season. The news comes ahead of the period drama’s two-part Season 3 finale, set to air on Tuesday.
“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,” Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said in a statement. “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.”
Set in the 1980s, the series captures the rise of the PC era at first in Texas, then in Silicon Valley, California. Lee Pace stars as Joe MacMillan, alongside Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clarke, Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe and Toby Huss as John Bostworth.
“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,” Cantwell and Rogers said.
“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,” the duo promised.
