Pied Piper has lost its funding for the last time
After breaking the internet many times, and then attempting to try to fix the internet many times, the Pied Piper boys are calling it a day. HBO has announced that the upcoming sixth season of Silicon Valley will be its last.
"Silicon Valley has been a career and life highlight for us," executive producers Mike Judge and Alec Berg said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "We'll miss it desperately, but we've always let Pied Piper's journey guide the way, and Season 6 seems to be the fitting conclusion. We are forever indebted to our incredible cast, crew and partners at HBO. At a certain point, there's only so much we can do to make the world a better place."
Season 5 of the comedy wrapped in May 2018, and production on Season 6 was pushed until Summer 2019, signaling that this might be the end. The final season will consist of seven episodes in total and will air sometime later this year.
Silicon Valley follows the ups and downs of a startup just trying to do its best every single day. The series, which stars Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, and Matt Ross, quickly became an awards show darling (with over 40 Emmy nominations). At the end of Season 4, the show weathered the abrupt departure of T.J Miller, who played big personality Erlich Bachman, leaving his character to meditate forever in Tibet. While Silicon Valley moved on without him, there are only so many times Richard and Co. can lose their funding.
Nanijani commented on the show's end on Twitter, writing, "Does anyone wanna buy two boats?"
Silicon Valley will return for Season 6 on HBO sometime in 2019.
