It seems it was always a six-season plan for HBO’s Silicon Valley.
The upcoming sixth season will be the comedy’s last. Its abbreviated seven-episode season is currently in pre-production and is set to debut later this year.
Back in 2017, series creators Mike Judge and Alec Berg told The Hollywood Reporter, “Six seasons seem to be the standard for something like this, which seems fine to me. I’d be happy with that.”
“Silicon Valley has been a career and life highlight for us,” said showrunners Mike Judge and Alec Berg in a statement. “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. 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 series follows entrepreneur Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) as he creates his startup, Pied Piper, in Silicon Valley. Also starring are Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, Jimmy O. Yang, Suzanne Cryer, Matt Ross, and Josh Brener.
