AMC announced today that Halt and Catch Fire will begin its fourth and final season with a two-hour premiere on Saturday, August 19 at 9/8c.
The series, created by executive producers and co-showrunners Christopher C. Rogers and Christopher Cantwell, chronicles the tech industry and the birth of the Internet in the 1980s and early 1990s. Season 3 left off with Donna being booted from the next big project: building a way to navigate the burgeoning Internet. As Joe, Cameron, and Gordon set out on their journey to bring this new world to life for users, Donna wasted no time making her next move — and possibly becoming her former colleagues’ first competitor.
The final season of the series will see our cast of characters navigating the early days of the Internet as they search for answers, both personally and professionally, while the competitive nature of the tech world continues to grow and affect their relationships. Watch a teaser for the new season.
“Halt and Catch Fire has always been about how people who make things put themselves into the things they create,” Rogers and Cantwell said in a statement. “Alongside our exceptional cast, writing staff, producers and network partners, we couldn’t be more excited to share these final 10 episodes of this beautiful thing we all made together.” Added Charlie Collier, president of AMC, AMC Studios and Sundance: “I’m thrilled that fans will enjoy a proper conclusion to the Halt and Catch Fire story. Fans will appreciate that, as it turns out, that first pilot script was very much the thing that got us to the thing.”
Halt and Catch Fire stars Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark and Toby Huss as John Bosworth. As previously announced, Anna Chlumsky will join the cast in the “crucial” role of Dr. Katie Herman, Chief Ontologist.
