AMC has announced the premiere date for the Atlanta-filmed series Halt and Catch Fire.
The series faced a bumpy first season ratings-wise, but it was announced today that fans of the show, which stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis and Kerry Bishé, can look forward to the second season premiering on May 31st.
“To our passionate core audience and the critics who loved the show through Season One – we thank you sincerely for your support. Season Two won’t disappoint. We’re going to drill down even deeper into these characters we’ve created, to give you all the emotional and psychological depth you’ve come to expect from Halt and Catch Fire, while at the same time evolving the show to be brasher and even more addictive,” said Jonathan Lisco, showrunner and executive producer of the series.
The next season promises to kick the drama up a notch and according to a press release from the network the series,”will pick up in early 1985 and center on the rise of Mutiny, Cameron (Davis) and Donna’s (Bishé) start-up company that is built upon the most disruptive idea of the modern era—the Internet. At the same time, Joe (Pace), Gordon (McNairy) and Bosworth (Toby Huss) will be caught up in their own “online” wave, remaking the tech landscape all around them, as they attempt to heal old wounds and deal with the fallout of season one.”
The network also released a sneak peek clip from the season two premiere episode featuring a first look at Mutiny, which you can watch below:
