The current season of "Halt and Catch Fire" picked up in March 1986 as Mutiny left Texas for the big leagues of Silicon Valley.

Gordon (Scoot McNairy) struggles to find a place within his wife's company as Joe McMillan (Lee Pace) builds upon his empire, reinventing himself with a bold play that shocks the Valley and sends him back into the lives of his old partners. In addition to Pace, McNairy, Bishé, Davis and Toby Huss as John Bosworth, the third season features Annabeth Gish as Diane Gould, a seasoned Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and Manish Dayal as Ryan Ray, a talented and ambitious programmer, in recurring roles.
