HBO has handed renewals to comedy shows Silicon Valley and Barry.
Silicon Valley has been renewed for season six less than a month after the show returned for season five. The show 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. It stars Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, Zach Woods, and Matt Ross.
Barry has been renewed for season two. Starring Bill Hader, Henry Winkler, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan, and Paula Newsome the comedy follows Barry a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who finds himself drawn into a community of acting students while on a hit job in LA. He wants to start a new life, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away.
“While ‘Barry’ has delighted audiences with its deft interplay of comedy and drama, ‘Silicon Valley’ remains as brilliantly and frighteningly prescient as ever,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “We’re thrilled that these two smart, funny shows are returning for another season.”
