HBO still has desires to stay in both the Presidential and Tech comedy spaces. This morning, less than 24 hours after the season 2 premiere of Silicon Valley, and season 4 premiere of Veep, HBO released a press release stating they’ve renewed both comedies for extra seasons.
HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo stated “Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year,” noted Lombardo. “Along with Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, both of which have already been renewed for 2016, they give HBO a stellar Sunday night like no other.”
He has a point here, is there a better night of television than Sunday night? And is there a better network for that than HBO? Put up an argument against it? Particularly when said night features Dragons and boobs in addition to TJ Miller going bonkers all over tech nerds.
