A belated renewal for the HBO comedy will come as a delight for fans who were expecting a season five, and now have one.
Alongside ‘Silicon Valley’, HBO have also renewed their other hit show VEEP, with both shows set for a return early 2018, filming later this year.
The Emmy Award winning show ‘Silicon Valley’ proved to be a top show from its first episode which led it to having an immediate renewal for the last 4 seasons, but the renewal for a 5th season was later than usual, most likely with HBO reviewing their options for the future.
The announcement was made recently directly from HBO president on programming, Casey Bloys. The new season will see the return of the original writers: Mike Judge, Alec Berg, John Altschuler and Carrie Kemper. It will also bring back the cast we know and love.
HBO also announced that they had renewed ‘VEEP’ for its seventh season, set to release the same time as ‘Silicon Valley’.
