AMC has finally approved the 'Halt And Catch Fire' renewal less than a month after the show's season one finale last month, according to Deadline.
Although the show, which stars Lee Pace, Mackenzie Davis and Scoot McNairy, struggled with ratings in its first season, it still managed to attract quite a few fans.
The show debuted to only 1.2 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic on June 1, earning a 0.3 rating, according to TV Series Finale. Viewership increased to 1.4 million by the second week but fell to about 700,000 in the next week. It plummeted to 550,000 viewers as the weeks wore on.
Despite the dismal numbers, however, producers of the show still remained positive, and it looks like AMC has also seen the show's potential and promptly ordered a 'Halt And Catch Fire' renewal.
"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," AMC President Charlie Collier said, regarding the show renewal.
"We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time," Collier continued.
He also added, "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."
'Halt And Catch Fire' season two is expected to air in the summer of 2015.
