Alright Firefans, the news we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. The third season of Halt and Catch Fire will be premiering Tuesday August 23rd on AMC at 9 PM. How incredible is this? News of filming being wrapped up and a premiere date. We know how incredibly hard the entire cast and crew have been working to create something magnificent for us.
It will be a two hour premiere and then continue the following 8 weeks at its regular time of 10 o’clock. Halt and Catch Fire will no longer air on Sundays as it has in the past, but on Tuesdays. This is actually great news when it comes to scheduling and time slots on television.
It's so fantastic to see this enthusiasm and passion

Here is a little synopsis on season three:
“The third season picks up in March 1986, as Mutiny has left 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. Meanwhile, 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.”
Now it’s time to do all you can to promote not only season three, but watching seasons one and two on Netflix. Gather round the television screen, the projection screen or the laptop and show people what this show is made of. Why we created this blog and why we fought so hard, alongside the creators, cast and crew to get a season three. This is such an homage to their dedication and insurmountable talent.
Rachel and I would like to thank them, and I know you would too, for this season and the previous two. We know it is a labor of love and genius. It’s so exciting to see where this season will take us and these one of a kind characters.
It will be 9 enthralling weeks.
I don’t if anyone else is like me, but I had to create a countdown on my phone. Only 53 more days and Halt and Catch Fire will grace us with its presence once again.
We’d also like to take the time to wish the creators, cast and crew good luck on the round of actors/actresses submitted for their consideration in the first round of voting. Just as the picture states, it’s impressive. The show up is up for consideration in 6 separate categories. Good luck to Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishé, Mackenzie Davis, Toby Huss, James Cromwell, Mark O’Brien, Aleksa Palladino, Skylar Astin and Annette O’Toole.
Voting is now open and all the nominees will be announced on July 14th, 2016.
Here is an edit with all 10 of the episode names, thank you @lpfn
As always, spread the word, keep watching and keep supporting.
PS: The Season Two DVD drops August 9th and is available for pre-order on Amazon.
