HBO Renews 'Silicon Valley' and 'Barry'

HBO has picked up a pair of its original comedy series for additional seasons - a sixth season for Silicon Valley and a second season for Barry. Both will premiere in 2019.

"While Barry has delighted audiences with its deft interplay of comedy and drama, Silicon Valley remains as brilliantly and frighteningly prescient as ever," said Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming. "We're thrilled that these two smart, funny shows are returning for another season."

Barry stars Bill Hader, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan and Henry Winkler.

Hader co-created and executive produces the series with Alec Berg.

Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Amanda Crew, Zach Woods, Matt Ross, Suzanne Cryer and Jimmy O. Yang.

Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky created the comedy. Judge executive produces with Alec Berg, Clay Tarver, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Jim Kleverweis and Jamie Babbit.
