Another HBO series is born! There will be a second season of Silicon Valley on HBO. We were particularly anxious about this renewal because new shows always have a tough time “breaking in” but it looks like Silicon Valley has done so and a season 2 will be made!
LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2014 – HBO has renewed the comedy series SILICON VALLEY for a second season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The renewals follow the recent two-season renewal of “Game of Thrones.
Mike Judge (“Office Space,” “Beavis & Butt-head,” “King of the Hill”) brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in the new comedy series SILICON VALLEY. Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ‘80s, the show is a collaboration between Judge and Alec Berg (“Seinfeld,” HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), and began its eight-episode first season Sunday, April 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m.).
Cast regulars for the first season include Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew and the late Christopher Evan Welch. Matt Ross guest stars.
SILICON VALLEY was termed a “terrific new comedy” byEntertainment Weekly, which awarded the show an A-, and HollywoodReporter.com called it “flat-out brilliant” and “uncommonly insightful,” while the Washington Post described the show as “delicious” and “hilarious.”
Season one credits: SILICON VALLEY was created by Mike Judge & John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky; executive producers, Mike Judge, Alec Berg, John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky, Michael Rotenberg and Tom Lassally; producer, Jim Kleverweis.
Congratulations to everyone who helped put this show together!
