‘Silicon Valley’ Season 6 Premiere Preview
When we last left the Pied Piper crew, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) offered Galvin Belson (Matt Ross) the entire Pied Piper company, saying that he is the person with the vision and expertise to achieve a new internet. Belson gloatingly accepted while Dinesh and Jared searched for Colin, the former K-Hole CEO, and added his 80,000 users to PiperNet. Having regained a majority, Gilfoyle installed a patch locking Hooli and Yao out of PiperNet. PiedPiperCoin then gained traction, and the company moved into four floors of offices vacated by Benson’s Hooli.
The final season of the tech satire will be truncated with just seven new episodes making up the show’s final bow.
“Silicon Valley has been a career and life highlight for us,” said Alec Berg, co-showrunner/executive producer with Mike Judge. “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.”
HBO has released the following teaser outlining what’s to come in the new season. Pied Piper ringleader Richard can be seen awkwardly testifying on Capitol Hill about the security of user data, while his colleagues watch in terror and embarrassment.
Rotten Tomatoes‘ critics consensus for Season 5 reads, “Five seasons in, Silicon Valley finds a new way to up the ante with tighter, less predictable plots, while still maintaining its clever brand of comedic commentary.”
Sean Mulvihill of FanboyNation wrote of its last season, “Season Five is perhaps the best season of the show and has moved everything – the characters, Pied Piper, the comedy – forward and ensured that I’m fully on board for the sixth season whenever it debuts.”
David Sims of The Atlantic echoed similar positive sentiments. “Silicon Valley‘s creators have long prided themselves on staying ahead of tech trends via thorough research, and this new season seems more on-point than ever,” he wrote.
The series was created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler, and Dave Krinsky. Middleditch, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, Jimmy O. Yang, Suzanne Cryer, Ross, and Josh Brener are all set to return for the final episodes. The show has been nominated for multiple Emmys throughout its run including Outstanding Comedy Series. It won two of the awards to date, both in 2015, for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour or Less) and Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series.
