Silicon Valley Season 3 Premiere Date Confirmed

By Jacob Klein on Jan 7, 2016 to Silicon Valley



UPDATE: Silicon Valley Season 3 will premiere April 24th!

Silicon Valley will receive another round of funding from it’s parent corporation HBO!  Put another way: Silicon Valley Season 3 is GREEN BABY!  Season 2 kicked off last night just after the big Game of Thrones premiere.  HBO says they won’t be releasing ratings on a nightly basis anymore but since they’re renewing this series so quickly, we think they went well.

Are you ready for another round of Silicon Valley?  Season 3 will probably premiere alongside Game of Thrones Season 6 in 2016.  Here’s the official announcement:

LOS ANGELES, April 13, 2015 – HBO has renewed the comedy series SILICON VALLEY for a third season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.

The Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated series SILICON VALLEY takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A collaboration between Mike Judge and Alec Berg, the show returned for its ten-episode second season Sunday, April 12 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT).

See you in Spring of 2016!  Until then just enjoy season 2 as it keeps the laughs rolling.

    OH HELL YES!!!!!

    This is one of my favorite shows! Up there with Halt and Catch Fire and Archer.

  • Marc

    This is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen in my 50 some odd years. And girls, this is exactly how men act and talk when they are alone. That is what is so great about it.

  • Daniela


  • Good to hear that..was waiting for season 3..

  • Pica Iolo

    quality needs time, can’t wait for season 3, 4, 5 and 6 to air.
    a big thank you to HBO and Alec Berg, you guys have the right taste and hit it every time! (incl. curb your enthusiasm etc.)
    I loooove this stuff. More please. Push it guys.

  • xly

    I love this show. If you like it you should check out Betas on Amazon Video. Wish they would continue production on Betas.

  • Amin Kodaganur

    i was waiting this for long time… today i will have party ;)… Thanks for this news… let’s see how pied piper team will fuck gavin again… hahahaha

  • Nicolas

    My 18th birthday will probably be the best. Geeks, nerds, beers and Silicon Valley airs.

  • Stone Gossardish

    Few shows have ever made quality such a jump from season 1 to season 2. Yes, there’s not a lot of women on the show, but it’s a tight and funny 30 min that has a big future

    • Big Guy, For You

      Why does it matter that there isn’t a lot of women in the show?

      • Stone Gossardish

        For some reason people have a beef with it. Judge said look, the Valley isn’t filled with many women so it’s accurate, and get over it. They added that one girl last year, and I would assume will add another. But it’s nowhere near as big an issue as how much better the show got in year 2.

        • Jef Dinsmore

          We moved on from women being represented; the exclusion of black actors is now the issue of the day. It proves to be a very interesting dilemma for the industry.

    • 67orbust

      I know a tech CEO and from the episodes he has watched said it is very realistic.

      • Stone Gossardish

        That’s the amazing part of it. Judge obviously worked in the valley for a while, and credit the entire show for having a feel for the pulse of it. To be that authentic and that funny is fine work.

        • 67orbust

          He hasn’t seen those episodes, just the 1st season and a few from the second. he was referring to the VC funding nonsense. I’m sure he wouldn’t change his opinion if he watched the entire 2nd. Season. I’ll ask.

          • Stone Gossardish

            That would be interesting insight

        • Jason Shannon

          Dude, I live in SJ and no one calls it “the valley.” This is the central coast not Van Nuys.

          • Stone Gossardish

            Fair enough. Just was noting that Mike Judge said he worked “in the valley.” Not for me to judge or take sides. Hopefully Judge comes back on the Stern show to discuss it for a good half hour again.

  • Carlos Vargas

    I binged watched this show over 3 days and I was not disappointed!

  • Omastewin

    going to be difficult to wait until 04/2016. hope that does not diminish the momentum. it is the best show i’ve ever seen on television.
    anyone notice erlich bachman’s voice as the mucus on sinus commercials lately?

  • Frank

    don’t worry they’ll soon KICK their pants:)

  • WeAreAnonymous

    • Jef Dinsmore

      My, are you going to be disappointed. This show will not return until Spring of 2016.

      • John Moore

        jef you are a rude bastard.

        • Hakeem

          you fat bitch

        • Jef Dinsmore

          Yeah, it has been said that is the case, nevertheless the fact remains that SV will be a part of a great 2016 on HBO.

  • Fair

    Jian Yang is the best!

    • Marco F.

      RUSS HANNEMAN is the best !

      • Ben the Cable Guy

        He’s alright

        • LOL

          • Ben the Cable Guy

            Damn straight!

    • RocketSurgeon42

      Erlich promise big meat.

  • makaveli

    finished both season in 2 nights.. I want more :(

  • P Donohue

    Great show want more!

  • chinu

    That’s a relief reading that desperately waiting for Silicon valley season 3,4,5… and so on,that’s a great show I’ve ever seen…

  • Apple Scruff

    I just binged on the first two seasons in about 4 days and I can’t believe I waited so long to watch it. Easily the funniest sitcom on TV right now (along with VEEP).

    • Josue Aguilar

      I know the feeling, I binged both seasons in one night… I literally just finished watching the last season 2 episode!

      • 0R30 G4L4G4

        We got something in common guys XD

  • Shukri HD

    I can’t wait for Season 3!

  • Papi LoCo

    I f&%#ing love this show

  • notGilfoyle

    Thank the Dark Lord.

    • Jason Gomez

      we walk further down the left handed path…….

  • David

    This show is brilliant! Every time I watch it I’m still just as engaged as I was the first time. I’m super excited about season 3 release in 2016. Being a minority in tech and entrepreneurship has been very interesting but fulfilling to say the least! I wanted to chime in about the brilliance of this show, in a ubiquitous industry, finding the perfect medium and storyline has been timely and intuitive for myself and I have made it practical.

  • Kyle

    I’ve already re-watched seasons 1 and 2 at least a couple of times. SV is so brilliantly composed, I swear I catch something new about an episode even if its the third time I’ve seen it. The only other show I experienced this way is Breaking Bad. Season 3 cannot arrive soon enough. Hoping that since they upped the episodes from 8 in season one to 10 in season two that maybe we’ll get a dozen in season 3? The writing talent and spot on cast easily supports this.

    • Larry Li


  • 1DRSy

    … in all honestly this show is the comedy version of the drama series Halt and Catch Fire. (but I still can’t choose a favorite)

  • 1DRSy

    YES :D Im so happy!!!!!

  • kingrob

    So glad HBO gave season 3 the green light! I work in IT and absolutely love Silicon Valley!

    • obsidianmoon

      You might also like the IT Crowd.

      • kingrob

        Thanks, I’ll check it out!

  • Lauren

    So glad that there WILL be a Season 3! Can’t wait!

  • Lauren

    Love this show. Love it love it love it!!!

  • Cpu Nerd

    This show IS awesome and has always BEEN awesome. Yea it did lack romance this season but who watches this show for romance? I expect Jimmy Hendrix to keep running into problems with people who want to prevent him from achieving ultimate success. But, somehow he always overcomes them and then run’s into an even more serious problem. They’ve done a great job so far. 1. Who know’s maybe the programmer from end frame hacked into pied pipers system when they were prepared to delete everything and compromised all or at least part of the source code. 2. Yes Jimmy’s been removed from CEO position but he is the genius behind pied piper. Who ever becomes the new CEO will not last for long as they don’t possess the coding knowledge Hendrix has. 3. Now that most of the company is owned by Laurie Bream, maybe she will have a tragic life event as did Monica’s previous boss Peter Gordon. This will then give them the chance to pass the torch to Monica who ultimately Jimmy’s “love”. This will give Jimmy full control over his company that he started from ground up. 4. Similar to Steve Jobs and apple they could fire Jimmy and then Jimmy start another compression company and it forces Laurie Bream (Monica’s boss) to buy Jimmy Hendrix and his new company out and give him majority shares. 5. Or similar to the last theory they could fire Jimmy and then Gavin Belson tries to hire Jimmy to Hooli and Laurie Bream is forced to make Jimmy the CEO again and this time he gets majority shares. CAN’T WAIT FOR SEASON 3!

    • Tom Higgins

      His name is Richard!

      • Cpu Nerd

        Woops must of been listening to the guitar player lol

        • ekaj_03

          Richard Hendricks to be exact. :)

        • Gopher Yourself

          lmao i was wondering wtf jimi hendrix had to do with anything

    • Fair

      It’s Nelson ‘BigHead’ Bighetti. Not BagHead.

    • obsidianmoon

      You mean Richard Hendrix :)

  • Boien Reyes

    Nice silly episodes I like it and more power

  • Tempe

    I like the series very much, but he can they have a little more luck with that pied piper, always that annoying “just not happining” thing.

  • Oleg Geraschenko

    I think the second season went a little sour. Not so much plot development. I expected some romance development between Richard and Monica. Instead, Laurie forced Monica into voting for firing Richard (betrayal – no true love possible after that)

    • Smokey_the_Bear

      If all your wanting is a romance show, go somewhere else.

      • adam smith

        thanks you passed away and make that straight sir (thumbs up)

      • well said !

    • raleighstclair

      Not much plot development unless the plot is about starting a company in Silicon Valley, then plot twists every episode. Romance? Get a grip!

      • Kyle

        I have to second this. Seriously, who watches this show for romance? Personally, I don’t watch any show mainly for romantic story lines but if that’s what you’re after I’m sure you can find Sex and the City airing on near constant loop somewhere or there’s always Netflix. The “romance” in SV is between whip smart yet socially awkward entrepreneurs and their budding businesses. Or its found in the platonic bromances between the mostly male entrepreneurs as they spend countless hours together intensely focused on creating the next great tech company together. Keep Monica on the fringes. That’s her role in their lives anyway. She’s not interesting enough to be much more. Which brings me to the one misstep this past season: essentially replacing Peter Gregory with Laurie Bream (the actor who played Gregory died unexpectedly during production). She’s just playing the female version of Gregory, complete with mild verbal tics and overly obvious Aspergers – its so annoying and unoriginal. The actress who plays Bream isn’t acquainted with the concept of subtlety or she’s received poor direction. In any event, I wish the Bream character would be written out and replaced by one more believable and tolerable.

        • Michael Larsen

          Perfect analysis.

          • Kyle


  • Robert Crowe

    I’m psyched and dreading this at the same time. Season 1 was genius, but in season 2 they went with some hokey plots, like the “delete key” thing, which was complete BS. I work in Silicon Valley and the thing I loved about this show is that they got it right. Now I’m worried that they’re going to do more hokey BS and ruin it.

    • agreed, looks like this show is only going downhill

      • Poppa Woody

        This is a a great comedy ! Robert, my dear Mr “I work in Silicon Valley” who gives a phark! and to your girlfriend Moogs who seems so keen on licking your a.s.s. HBO have done a great job casting, they have established a great story line.. With director, Mike Judge of Office Space and Beavis and Butthead fame. Maybe its time for you girls to drink your own piss!

    • adam smith

      it’s comedy, and is by far the most realistic comedy show about silicon valley

    • Pica Iolo

      bad news for you Robert: realism is a storyteller for a limited time only. I am pretty sure they will exit the rootway and commit to the entertaining elements. Like every show, time and place are only launch elements that allow characters and story to grow and find their own dynamics. Once the characters and story are set successfully, the picture in the back becomes increasingly irrelevant. After all, this is not a documentary.
      the valley-stage gained interest because so many things have happened there in the past decade but never made it to hollywood. Steve Jobs, Ashton Kutcher and other bi- have drawn the 2 industries closer together, more poeple feel close to both entertainment as well as technology&lifestyle now, which opened ideas for a sitcome that touches the new generation.
      As long as the writers consume enough ideas from the real thing that they can turn into a funny story, you will have what you ask for. Once the glass is empty, the story will fly to some other place. But never ever expect realism in a comedy show, come on.

    Im horny

  • stevie

    no way dinesh the latino is a riot. I’m hoping the lads get laid next season :D

    • fartel engelbert

      He’s pakistani !

    • Omastewin

      dinesh the latino? you must be referring to one episode where he gets mistaken for a latino right?

  • Max Powell


  • Joy Sreta

    Dinesh is smart but his delivery is deadpan and some of his comments are meant as sarcasm.

  • vivici

    I dont understand the role of Dinesh, his jokes are most of the times redundant and just pointing out the obvious. Need more funny and witty guy in his place.

    • P Donohue

      He is playing a part, a character from another country who does not fully understand our culture.

  • Dave Birkhead

    Spring 2016? So far away!

  • Sander

    Best show since years 👍

  • Eric

    Wooooooooooooo Awesome like this show… 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Alex

    Just finished watching s2e10, absolutely love how the writers always manage to pull it back.

    Gonna be really interesting to see what they do for this last episode’s kick in the pants.
