Silicon Valley returns in October

The Emmy nominated comedy series Silicon Valley returns for a sixth and final season next month.

The sixth and final season of Mike Judge and Alec Berg’s tech-skewering comedy opens with Pied Piper, after years of false starts, bigger than ever before and now a legitimate presence in Silicon Valley, having separated themselves from the competition with their commitment to not mine user data. Yet, as they soon learn, staying true to your morals comes at a price in a business that is fast-moving and cutthroat.

A major player in the industry, reluctant leader Richard (Thomas Middleditch) continues to struggle with how to balance his integrity with the insane amounts of money dangled in front of him. Despite officially having Monica (Amanda Crew) on his team, Richard risks losing Jared (Zach Woods), who feels out of place at the new Pied Piper and is drawn back to the hacker hostel, now co-run by Big Head (Josh Brener) and Jian-Yang (Jimmy O. Yang). Meanwhile, at Pied Piper’s expansive offices, Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) face the responsibilities of being managers of large teams. And, refusing to abandon his company even as it is being gutted, Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) pivots in an anti-tech direction.

As the Pied Piper guys deal with the stress of managing a growing organisation and the uncomfortable social situations that come along with that, Silicon Valley promises a conclusion that’s funny, smart and fitting for our forever- awkward tech heroes.

Silicon Valley is executive produced by Mike Judge, Alec Berg, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Clay Tarver, Jim Kleverweis and Lew Morton.

Silicon Valley season six will stream on Foxtel and screen on The Comedy Channel, express from the US from Monday October 28 at 9:00pm AEDT.
