Halt and Catch Fire Season 3 Photos

Date for Halt and Catch Fire's Two-Hour Season 3 Premiere Set at AMC

Here’s news that’ll reboot your spirits: AMC has chosen a return date for Halt and Catch Fire. The 1980s computer drama’s two-hour Season 3 premiere will bow on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 9/8c.

Subsequent episodes will air Tuesdays at 10 pm. Vox first reported the date.

Per the official press release: “In the third season, which picks up in March 1986, Mutiny leaves Texas for the big leagues of Silicon Valley. Founders Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé) search for the idea that will launch Mutiny as a player, but new collaborators test their partnership. Gordon (Scoot McNairy) struggles to find a place within his wife’s company as Joe McMillan (Lee Pace) builds upon his empire, reinventing himself with a bold play that shocks the Valley and sends him back into the lives of his old partners. In addition to Pace, McNairy, Bishé, Davis and Toby Huss as John Bosworth, the third season features Annabeth Gish as Diane Gould, a seasoned Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and Manish Dayal as Ryan Ray, a talented and ambitious programmer, in recurring roles.”

The low-rated-yet-critically-adored series was renewed in October after a much-buzzed-about second season.

At the time, AMC also announced that EP Jonathan Lisco — who presided over Seasons 1 and 2 — would step down as showrunner to focus on shepherding TNT’s Animal Kingdom. Halt co-creators Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers will take the showrunner reins in his place.

Much in the way that Halt is about underdogs  overcoming convention and breaking new ground, the story of Season 3 will endeavor to further stretch the medium and challenge the form,” Cantwell and Rogers said via statement in October.

    I think moving it out of the Sunday 10pm zone will be good for this show. Too many good shows on Sunday night…
