Season 2

Season 2, which stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishé and Aleksa Palladino, picks up in early 1985 and centres on the rise of Mutiny, Cameron (Davis) and Donna's (Bishé) start-up company that is built upon the most disruptive idea of the modern era - the Internet.

At the same time, Joe (Pace), Gordon (McNairy) and Bosworth (Toby Huss) get caught up in their own online wave, remaking the tech landscape all around them, as they attempt to heal old wounds and deal with the fallout of Season 1.

It's March 1985. More than a year has passed since Joe MacMillan set fire to a truck full of Cardiff Giant PCs, the last in a long string of destructive acts that burned the people that made the machine possible: Gordon Clark, Donna Clark, Cameron Howe and John Bosworth.

The Giant is about to go the way of the dinosaur, like any number of personal computers to enter the market in the wake of IBM. The lesson is harsh but clear: in history, only the truly disruptive ideas are destined to matter.

Halt and Catch Fire's second season explores themes that tap directly into the modern zeitgeist such as the thin line separating genius from self-delusion, the fragility of human connection, and everyone's desire, especially in today's tech-obsessed world, to leave a meaningful mark and do something that truly matters.

Recurring roles this season include James Cromwell (Boardwalk Empire, American Horror Story) as Jacob Wheeler and Mark O'Brien (The Republic of Doyle) as Tom Rendon.

Halt and Catch Fire was created by Chris Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and executive produced by Cantwell, Rogers, showrunner Jonathan Lisco (Southland) and Gran Via Productions' Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, Rectify, Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad, Rectify).
