HBO has finally set a return date for the sixth and final season of Mike Judge’s “Silicon Valley.”
The tech comedy will premiere its final run on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. It will consist of seven episodes.
The pay cable network also released the first teaser for the last season, which you can watch above.
“Silicon Valley” stars Thomas Middleditch as Richard, Zach Woods as Jared, Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh, Martin Starr as Gilfoyle, Amanda Crew as Monica, Jimmy O. Yang as Jian-Yang, Suzanne Cryer as Laurie Bream, Matt Ross as Gavin Belson and Josh Brener as Big Head.
Judge serves as co-showrunner on the comedy, along with Alec Berg, who has the same duties on “Barry” (Berg co-created “Barry” with its star Bill Hader). Once “Silicon Valley” wraps, HBO will still be in business with both Berg and Judge. “Barry” has been renewed for a third season, while Judge has two projects in development.
The first one, “QualityLand,” is in the very near future and is the story of humanity’s struggle against the tyranny of convenience. But it’s funny. Judge is co-writing the script with Josh Lieb, who will executive produce with Michael Rotenberg for 3 Arts Productions. The project is a co-production between HBO and Lionsgate.
The second project from Judge is a limited series titled “A5,” which is centered on a bioengineer who discovers the gene that makes a person an a-hole and attempts to answer the questions nagging at all of us: Why do a-holes exist? Why have they come to dominate our culture? And can they be cured? Judge will also co-write “A5” with Etan Cohen; both will executive produce with Rotenberg.
HBO is also slated to debut its heavily-anticipated adaptation of “Watchmen” from Damon Lindelof in October, though the network has yet to set a premiere date.
