AMC announced this morning that Halt and Catch Fire has been renewed for a second season. The freshman series, which premiered in June, is the most recent scripted drama from the cable network. While it has struggled somewhat in the ratings department, AMC noted the show's committed core audience and critical acclaim.

“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience,” said AMC president, Charlie Collier, in a press release. “We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time. We see that opportunity here and look forward to a second season of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ from creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, and showrunner Jonathan Lisco.”

Look for Season 2 of Halt and Catch Fire to premiere in summer 2015.
