NEW YORK, July 4 (UPI) -- AMC says Season 3 of Halt and Catch Fire will debut Aug. 23 with back-to-back episodes.
Starring Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishe, Scoot McNairy, Lee Pace, Toby Huss, Annabeth Gish and Manish Dayal, the show "captures the rise of the PC era in the 1980s, focused on four main characters attempting to innovate against the changing backdrop of technology," a synopsis said.
"Following last season's critical reception, we believe that Season 3 is poised to take our show to the next level. While a strong, evolving technology narrative will continue to drive these next 10 episodes, the real story remains the emotional and psychological journeys of Joe, Cameron, Gordon, Donna, and Bosworth," showrunners and executive producers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers said in a joint statement.
"If Season 1 was a tale of the corporate boardroom and Season 2 chronicled a start-up, Season 3 is about the perils of a promising young company striving to join the ranks of the winners whose names still define the competitive landscape of Silicon Valley. Whereas Mutiny was once a rag-tag group of young coders full of limitless potential, the company now finds itself squarely in its adolescence, striving for corporate adulthood in a strange land where its future is far from guaranteed."
