‘Halt and Catch Fire’ season 3 premiere date confirmed by AMC

Want to see when Lee Pace and the rest of the “Halt and Catch Fire” cast are going to be back on AMC? Wait no further. Today, the network confirmed the news that the critically-acclaimed series, one that is still in need of more viewers, is moving to a new night in Tuesdays.

Specifically, the show will premiere on August 23 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time with back-to-back episodes, and from here on out it will air at 10:00 p.m. Eastern. Its network has started to test expansion into other nights; “Hell on Wheels” airs on Saturdays, and then both “Turn: Washington’s Spies” and “Better Call Saul” air on Mondays. Moving to Tuesdays is an opportunity to see how the show fares against different competition, since in theory, there’s really not too much for it to be up against here.

AMC also released today a quick logline for those of you who want to see what the story is going to be moving forward:

“In the third season, which picks up in March 1986, Mutiny leaves Texas for the big leagues of Silicon Valley. Founders Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé) search for the idea that will launch Mutiny as a player, but new collaborators test their partnership. 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.”

We’ll be covering “Halt and Catch Fire” extensively all season, so be sure to check back for some more news on it as the summer goes on!
