“As Alec Berg is a showrunner on both Barry and Silicon Valley, the schedule was structured to allow Alec to wrap on Barry before starting work on Silicon Valley,” an HBO spokesperson said in a statement.
According to the site, the show will begin production on Season 6 of Silicon Valley next summer. That means that we may not be watching the new season until 2020. The series was created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky. Silicon Valley is executive produced by Judge, Berg, Clay Tarver, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Jim Kleverweis and Jamie Babbit. Co-executive producers include Anthony King, Graham Wagner and Ron Weiner.
Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Zach Woods and Amanda Crew. T.J. Miller left the series after Season 4. It has been speculated that Season 6 could be the last in the series. The move might have other repercussions besides upsetting fans. Moving the HBO series to 2020 will take it out of the Emmy Awards race and opens the door for some other shows. The show has been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for all five seasons it’s been airing on the cable giant.
