HBO has renewed the comedy series VEEP for a fifth season and SILICON VALLEY for a third season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.
“VEEP and SILICON VALLEY are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year,” noted Lombardo. “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.”
Created by Armando Iannucci, VEEP stars Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as new President Selina Meyer, for whom even the most banal action can have unexpected and far-reaching consequences. The Emmy®-nominated series kicked off its ten-episode fourth season Sunday, April 12 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).
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).
