The quest for the future of computing continues. AMC is bringing Halt And Catch Fire back for a second season. “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,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president today. “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.” Season 2 of H&CF is set to premiere in the summer of 2015.
The series has received generally positive reviews from critics and has a Metacritic rating of 69 out of 100, based on 30 reviews. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports a 78% "certified fresh" rating for the first season, based on 40 critics, with the consensus: "A refreshingly well-acted period drama, Halt and Catch Fire
convincingly portrays the not-too-distant past." Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe
expressed promise after the series premiere, writing "it's easy to see why the network chose it. Set in Dallas in 1983, it has a distinctive visual style—something AMC, with the cinematic Breaking Bad
and the elegant Mad Men
, wants to make part of its brand identity". Speaking of the show's dynamic characters, Gilbert added, "Gordon is the Steve Wozniak to Joe's Steve Jobs, in a way. Add to that dynamic immature 22-year-old coding expert Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis)...and you've got a chemical mixture on the verge of exploding"
