Variety reports that HBO has announced that Silicon Valley Season 6 will be the final go-around for Pied Piper. This makes sense as the story has largely run its course and showrunner Alec Berg is moonlighting on Barry. Still, we’ll be sad to see Richard and Co. go.
Silicon Valley is the creation of Mike Judge, John Atlschuler, and Dave Krinsky. It’s executive produced by creators Judge and Berg, joined in that capacity by Clay Tarver, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Jim Kleverweis, with co-executive producers Jamie Babbit, Anthony King, Graham Wagner, and Ron Weiner. They are joined by consulting producers Carrie Kemper, Carson Mell, Jonathan Dotan, Todd Silverstein and Josh Lieb.
Silicon Valley Season 6 Release Date
While HBO hasn’t announced a release date just yet, the first four seasons of the show all premiered in April, with season five coming in late March. We expect something along those lines for Silicon Valley Season 6….in 2020.
Yes, according to TVLine, Silicon Valley Season 6 won’t even begin production until summer of 2019, due to Alec Berg’s busy production schedule on Barry. So strap in for a long wait.
Silicon Valley Season 6 Cast
Silicon Valley continues to be an irreverent examination of the over-the-top, often-self-aggrandizing, tech culture personalities who call the eponymous Northern California region home. The series centers on the embattled awkward (often-exploited) misfits of video compression startup “Pied Piper,” in Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) Bertram Gilfoyle (Martin Starr), Jared Dunn (Zach Woods) and Dinesh Chugtai (Kumail Nanjiani), all of whom are expected to return for Silicon Valley Season 6.
Interestingly, T.J. Miller, an original cast member, who played the perpetually-stoned Pied Piper idea man, Erlich Bachman, exited the series after Season 4; a move that, in retrospect, may prove to be serendipitous for the series as it goes in to Season 6, considering his various controversies, the latest of which involves his arrest over a fake bomb threat at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
Silicon Valley Season 6 Episodes
Whenever Silicon Valley Season 6 arrives, it will contain seven episodes, per a Variety report.
Silicon Valley Season 6 Story
It was always expected that Season 6 could end the show. Silicon Valley creator Mike Judge seemed to imply that quite awhile ago, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “Season five would be the second-to-last, yeah. That’s how we were talking when we were setting up this season finale, just to help us in the writing. But you never know. It could be that it gets to six and someone has some idea.”
