If you haven’t watched HBO’s Silicon Valley yet, shame on you. Stop reading this immediately and do so. (Also, because there are spoilers ahead). You’ve been warned. Here’s what’s coming up on the third season of the series which is back April 24th.
On the heels of Pied Piper’s legal victory, Richard has been ousted as CEO and is offered the diminished role of CTO, while the rest of his team – Erlich, Jared, Dinesh and Gilfoyle – faces the question of just how far their loyalty extends. With a new no-nonsense CEO hell-bent on transforming everything from Pied Piper’s offices to its business agenda, the guys must find a way to triumph in the war of Art vs. Commerce, negotiating the many competing interests along the way.
Meanwhile, as Gavin Belson works to rehabilitate Hooli’s image following his blunders, Big Head finds himself in a new partnership, and at Raviga, Laurie holds her cards close to the vest and Monica tries to look out for Pied Piper’s best interests.
The Emmy®-winning and Golden Globe®-nominated series Silicon Valley 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. A collaboration between Mike Judge and Alec Berg, the show returns for its ten-episode third season.
Series regulars include Thomas Middleditch as Richard Hendricks; T.J. Miller as Erlich; Zach Woods as Jared; Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh; Martin Starr as Gilfoyle; Josh Brener as Big Head; Amanda Crew as Monica; Matt Ross as Gavin Belson; Jimmy O. Yang as Jian-Yang; and Suzanne Cryer as Laurie Bream.
Returning guest stars this season include Ben Feldman (Ron LaFlamme), Alice Wetterlund (Carla) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Russ Hanneman). New guest stars include Stephen Tobolowsky as Jack Barker, Pied Piper’s new CEO, and Annie Sertich as tech blogger C.J. Cantwell.
