After the season finale only accumulated 574,000 viewers, it looked as though AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire would never make it to season 2. On top of that, the only time it broke a million viewers was season premiere night. Otherwise, the numbers ranged from 970,000 down to a lackluster 550,000. But, it turns out, AMC still has faith in the series because it was just renewed and will air again next summer.
For those of you who have missed out, Halt and Catch Fire picks up about a year after IBM unleashes the very first IBM personal computer. Lee Pace leads as Joe MacMillan, an ex-IBM executive who’s determined to beat them to it, even if it means running the risk of getting into some serious trouble in the process. Hit the jump for more on the Halt and Catch Fire season 2 renewal.
