“Six years ago, AMC bet on a passion project and the two untested young guys behind it. As a consequence, we’ve been allowed to take the creative journey of our lives and tell a story that, over four seasons, became something greater than the sum of its parts,” said co-creators and executive producers Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers. “At its core, “Halt and Catch Fire” has always been about how people who make things put themselves into the things they create. Alongside our exceptional cast, writing staff, producers and network partners, we couldn’t be more excited to share these final ten episodes of this beautiful thing we all made together.”
Halt and Catch Fire is setting itself to be AMC’s summer hit while the wait for the network’s largest behemoth, The Walking Dead, continues.
