Silicon Valley

HBO has renewed Silicon Valley for a fifth season and Veep for a seventh season, with both shows returning in 2018. The Emmy(R)-winning and Golden Globe-nominated 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 concludes its ten-episode fourth season Sunday, June 25 at 10:00pm ET/PT. Series regulars include Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Jimmy O. Yang and Suzanne Cryer.

Veep

The Emmy(R)-winning comedy series Veep concludes its ten-episode sixth season Sunday, June 25 at 10:30 pm ET/PT. The show stars Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the former vice president and president, who is struggling to navigate uncharted political territory. The ensemble cast also includes two-time Emmy(R) winner Tony Hale, Emmy(R) nominee Anna Chlumsky, Emmy(R) nominee Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Kevin Dunn, Emmy(R) nominee Gary Cole and Sam Richardson.
