As the winter original series are about to launch (VINYL, GIRLS and TOGETHERNESS) HBO looks ahead to spring. In our sights are GAME OF THRONES, SILICON VALLEY and VEEP. HBO has offered teases from each. We already revealed the Banner Clip and the Still Shots from GOT. Now comes the first glimpses of that epic drama’s companion series. Again, these are only short 30-second teases of what is ahead.
The gang from Pied Piper is back in business in SILICON VALLEY. Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani and a slew of others continue to battle it out in the tech world for another season and it is not easy. If you remember in the conclusion of last season a power play for board seats as shifted the power of the tech company. Our players are working for a new boss now, but as the tease below shows the ousted CEO, Richard, is not giving up the fight.
SILICON VALLEY returns for its ten-episode third season SUNDAY, APRIL 24 at 10:00pm. That means taking the 10:30pm slot is VEEP. The Emmy Award winning show returns with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky etc. on Sunday, April 24 for a ten-episode run of Season 5. If you recall in Season 3 Selina Meyer announced her candidacy to run for the position on POTUS and in Season Four she ended up becoming president after her predecessor stepped down. Even though Meyer and staff were all cozy in the White House there was still a whiff of scandal about. Also she still needed to campaign to hold the new position come the impending Election Night. But, it wouldn’t be VEEP without some zany chaos. The new tease just tells us how she has been handling it all.
So there you go. Mark your calendar and get ready for high hilarity as HBO’s sterling comedies, SILICON VALLEY and VEEP return. Will Richard hold on to control of Pied Piper? Will Selina hold onto the presidency? We will find out in April.
