AMC has renewed “Halt and Catch Fire” for a third season.

“We love what the creative team and cast have been able to deliver on ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ and are particularly grateful to the critics and fans who supported the show throughout the second season and have been pulling for its renewal,” Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV said in a statement Thursday.

“We’re so thankful for the talent and leadership of Jonathan Lisco over these first two seasons and glad that we are able to continue this story with co-creators and showrunners Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers at the helm,” he continued. “In a world of TV series filled with scary, mythical creatures like zombies and dragons, we’re thrilled to be able to follow these characters to Silicon Valley and finally bring unicorns to television.”

The 1980s set drama stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy,Kerry Bishe and Mackenzie Davis. From AMC Studios, “Halt and Catch Fire” captures the rise of the PC era.

Co-creators and writers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers have been upped to showrunners for the 10-episode third season, which will air on AMC in summer 2016.

In addition to Cantwell and Rogers, the series is executive produced by Gran Via Productions’ Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.
