Today HBO announced that both Veep and Silicon Valley will be getting more seasons. Veep will be back with its fourth season next year, whereas the new comedy Silicon Valley has been picked for a second season.
Veep was created by Armando Iannucci and stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as vice president Selina Meyer, with a heart of gold (well that might be debatable) and a mouth like a sailor. Veep’s third season premiered on April 6. Dreyfus and Tony Hale both took home Emmys for their performances last year. Personally, I think season 3 is the best season of Veep yet.
Mike Judge, from Office Space and Beavis & Butt-head, is responsible for Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley also premiered on April 6 and stars Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, and the late Christopher Evan Welch. If you haven’t watched Silicon Valley, you should definitely check it out. It’s pretty funny, even if you don’t know what a compression algorithm is (trust me, I still have no freakin clue).
