“Halt and Catch Fire” Gets Renewed by AMC

Although the rookie drama Halt and Catch Fire didn’t have quite the numbers that the network might have hoped for, AMC announced yesterday that the show will be renewed for a second season. 

The period-drama, set in Texas in the 1980’s, which stars Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies), did rank well with an “upscale-skewing audience”, according to EW, which AMC has grown sort of accustomed to via Mad Men.

Being on AMC was also likely a blessing for ‘HaCF’, as the network does have recent history of being a bit more patient with developing its shows. As previously reported here, Halt and Catch Fire became the first show to debut its series premiere on Tumbler– a full week before the initial episode aired.

While there is no word yet on when the show will return for its second season, I expect we’ll hear more this Winter.
