Halt and Catch Fire Bosses Talk Season 2 Hopes, Answer "Burning" Finale Questions

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 1 finale of AMC's Halt and Catch Fire. Read at your own risk.]

Things literally caught fire on Sunday's Season 1 finale of AMC's Halt and Catch Fire.

Despite the roller coaster ride that was Comdex in the penultimate episode, Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace) & Co. were able to sell enough units of the Cardiff Electric Giant to earn Joe and Gordon (Scoot McNairy) an 8 percent stake in the company. But Joe, who was still smarting from seeing Apple's talking Macintosh and his breakup with Cameron (Mackenzie Davis), just couldn't leave well enough alone.

Can Halt and Catch Fire reboot AMC's drama slate?

No longer satisfied to just hawk a "faster, cheaper IBM clone," Joe... read more

I can't believe they killed President Heller on 24: Live Another Day! What does this mean for Jack? — Jackie
It's safe to assume that Jack's role in Heller's death will mean major drama between Jack and Heller's daughter Audrey. But even though you'd think Audrey could never forgive Jack's betrayal, there may be a glimmer of hope (especially since Audrey's husband also played along with Heller's death wish.) "Jack's question when this is all over is, 'Can he go back with Audrey? Is there a chance for the two of them?'"executive producer Evan Katz says. "In Episode 5, it was pretty clear that the two of them still love each other."

Can Halt and Catch Fire Reboot AMC's Drama Slate?

If you tune in to AMC Sunday night at 10/9c, you'll find a period piece starring a handsome, well-dressed man who, despite having the confidence and silver tongue to sell almost anything, is running from his complicated past. And no, we're not talking about Mad Men or Don Draper.

The show in question is Halt and Catch Fire, a drama set in the "Silicon Prairie" of Dallas, Texas in 1983 that tells the story of the race to build the best personal computer.  And while the surface comparisons to Mad Men may be incidental, it's no surprise that AMC would be looking to recapture some of that show's magic as the network prepares to reboot itself after saying goodbye to its cornerstone property next year.

Where does AMC go from here?

"More than anything, we talk about doing what got us to the dance," AMC president Charlie Collier told TVGuide.com back in January while speaking of upcoming projects, including Halt and Catch Fire. Added Executive Vice President of Original Programming Joel Stillerman: "Shows that just a handful of networks in the business would even entertain are much more the bread and butter of what we're doing. The game is to be eclectic by design and look for the great visionaries who we can empower to do their passion projects and big original ideas."

With Halt and Catch Fire, AMC got just that... read more
