Veep, Silicon Valley Renewed At HBO

Two of HBO's comedies will be returning for another season. Variety reports that the network has renewed Veep and Silicon Valley for seventh and fifth seasons, respectively– but Silicon Valley will lose one of its stars.

Veep stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the former vice president (and now former president) of the United States. The comedy, which has earned Louis-Dreyfus five Golden Globe nominations and five Emmy wins, also stars Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole, and Sam Richardson. It's currently the reigning Outstanding Comedy winner at the Emmy for the last two years. Veep currently airs on Sundays at 10:30 p.m. on HBO; it ends its current season on June 25.

Silicon Valley is also critically acclaimed, with 21 Emmy nominations (including two wins) and two Golden Globe nominations. The show, about a California tech start-up, stars Thomas Middleditch, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiana, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Jimmy O. Yang, and Suzanne Cryer. The network recently announced that Deadpool's T.J. Miller, who has been with the show since season one, will not return for the fifth season after a mutual agreement between him and producers. Silicon Valley airs just before Veep at 10 p.m. on Sundays; it also ends its current season on June 25.

Both shows are set to return in 2018. While we wait for more of HBO's comedy antics, see some TV show cancelations that never should have happened.
