Despite the fact that Halt and Catch Fire had very poor ratings in season one, AMC renewed the series for a second season. Will the numbers rise in season two or will they fall even lower? Cancelled or renewed for a third season? We’ll have to wait and see.
The story of Halt and Catch Fire picks up in March 1985, more than a year after Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace) set fire to a truck full of Cardiff Giant PCs. It was the last in a long string of destructive acts that burned the people that made the machine possible: Gordon Clark (Scoot McNairy), Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé), Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) and John Bosworth (Toby Huss). Can things only get better from here?
