(from AMC's press release, June 2017) AMC announced today that "Halt and Catch Fire" will begin its fourth and final season with a two-hour premiere on August 19th at 9:00pm ET/PT. The series, created by executive producers and co-showrunners Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers, chronicles the tech industry and the birth of the Internet in the 1980s and early 1990s. The final season of the series will see our cast of characters navigating the early days of the Internet and web browsers, pondering their destinies both personally and professionally, while the competitive nature of the tech world continues to complicate and affect their relationships. "Six years ago, Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers shared their vision for 'Halt and Catch Fire' and it has been a privilege to help them bring Halt to life, and to grow alongside them as we all dove into the project," said Charlie Collier, President of AMC, AMC Studios and SundanceTV. "The Chrises, as we affectionately refer to them, are the personification of what so many of us love about our roles at AMC. They are smart, talented, creative people with whom we shared trust, crafting characters and stories that have engaged passionate fans. And, that the stories of Joe, Cameron, Gordon, Donna and Bos also dove deeply into specific creator's journeys only made the experience with Chris and Chris all the more personal and satisfying. I'm thrilled that fans will enjoy a proper conclusion to the Halt and Catch Fire story. Fans will appreciate that, as it turns out, that first pilot script was very much the thing that got us to the thing."
