HBO announced today that Silicon Valley Season 6 will bring the series to a close. Silicon Valley Season 6 will consist of seven episodes and will premiere later this year.
“‘Silicon Valley’ has been a career and life highlight for us. We’ll miss it desperately, but we’ve always let Pied Piper’s journey guide the way, and Season 6 seems to be the fitting conclusion,” showrunners Mike Judge and Alec Berg said in a statement. “We are forever indebted to our incredible cast, crew, and partners at HBO. At a certain point, there’s only so much we can do to make the world a better place.”
The Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated Silicon takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.
“It’s been quite a ride since the pilot, when Richard Hendricks’ algorithm first caught the eye of Peter Gregory and Gavin Belson,” said Amy Gravitt, EVP, HBO Programming. “In the meantime, our culture’s entire relationship with technology has been transformed, and Alec and Mike’s meticulous storytelling has managed to stay ahead of it every step of the way. This type of comedic chemistry, both behind and in front of the camera, is rarely found. Silicon Valley is just the beginning of many more collaborations with these hilarious writers and performers, as well as our standout crew.”
Silicon Valley Season 6 stars Thomas Middleditch as Richard, Zach Woods as Jared, Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh, Martin Starr as Gilfoyle, Amanda Crew as Monica, Jimmy O. Yang as Jian-Yang, Suzanne Cryer as Laurie Bream, Matt Ross as Gavin Belson, and Josh Brener as Big Head.
Mike Judge, Alec Berg, Clay Tarver, Lew Morton, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, and Jim Kleverweis executive produce the series. Ron Weiner, Sarah Walker and Daisy Gardner co-executive produce, and the consulting producers are Carrie Kemper, Carson Mell, Jonathan Dotan, Todd Silverstein and Josh Lieb.
