Now that the first season of “Halt and Catch Fire” has wrapped up, we are happy to inform you that AMC has green lit the show’s Season 2. Read on to learn more about this scoop.

“Halt and Catch Fire” raked in an average of 1.3 million viewers on their 10-episode run on AMC. It was one of the most “upscale dramas on ad-supported television” according to Nielsen Data. It is no. 3 in 18-49 viewers and no.4 in 25-24. It is also considered as one of the most engaging dramas among 18-49 and 25-54 viewers.

“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. 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,” explained Charlie Collier, the president of AMC, as published on Zap2it.

Lee Pace, the star of the show, is very thankful. He expressed this through his Twitter account: “@AMC_TV thanks for picking up #HaltandCatchFire for a 2nd season! Congrats to our awesome cast and incredible crew! Thanks for all the love.”
