HBO has officially renewed two of the most crass , vulgar, hilarious, and amazing shows on the network. “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” will return next year for new seasons!
The shows were picked up for new seasons early; only a day after their season premieres this week. HBO programming president, Michael Lombardo, announced the renewal yesterday saying,
“Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year. Along with Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, both of which have already been renewed for 2016, they give HBO a stellar Sunday night like no other.”
“Veep” stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and will return for a fifth season next year. Unfortunately, the fifth season will return without its series creator, Armando Iannuci, who announced that he was stepping down as showrunner last week. “Curb Your Enthusiasm’s” David Mandel will take over on the White House comedy.
“Silicon Valley” comes from Mike Judge and Alec Berg. It was renewed for third season. The first season was incredibly well received and even earned an Emmy nomination.
