HBO Renews Veep and Silicon Valley
I'd like to see Ryantology try to scoop us on this one! HBO has renewed its Sunday-night comedy block, ordering new seasons of both Veep and Silicon Valley. Armando Iannucci's political satire Veep, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the vice president of the United States, has been reelected to a fourth season, while Mike Judge's freshman comedy Silicon Valley, about a group of computer programmers trying to make it big in the tech industry, has earned another round of funding for Season 2. Silicon Valley has only aired three episodes so far, but the startup of a series has found early early success: critical acclaim and a series premiere that drew 2.5 million viewers, making it HBO's highest-rated debut for a half-hour program since 2009.
The news comes not long after the network renewed its extremely popular fantasy epic Game of Thrones for two more seasons, so I hope you really like HBO's Sunday-night lineup, because it looks like it's not going anywhere for a while.
