'Silicon Valley' season 6: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else about HBO's show on start-ups
‘Silicon Valley’ put many talented actors on Hollywood’s map, including Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, and Zach Woods.
HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’ is a hilarious look into the lives of young tech experts and entrepreneurs who try their luck at making the next Google or Facebook from Silicon Valley. The show which premiered on March 25, 2018, gives a peep into this life through five young men who start their own startup called Pied Piper and overcome the various obstacles that are thrown their way.
The upcoming sixth season, which will comprise of seven episodes, will be the final season of the series.
A date is yet to be assigned for the premiere of season 6, but it has been announced that it will be in October 2019.
The show narrates the story of Richard Hendricks, who has created an app known as Pied Piper, which is a revolutionary data compression algorithm that has all of Silicon Valley interested, and everyone wants a piece of it. Richard takes his company forward with the help of the people who reside in a business incubator run by the selfish and destructive Elrich Bachman, with him are Bertram Gilfoyle and Dinesh Chugtai and they are later joined by Jared Dunn.
Over the course of the last five seasons, we have seen Richard, Gilfoyle, Dinesh and Jared face obstacles in various forms, including each other. However, the resourceful bunch figures a way out of every pickle. The show is brilliant at showcasing the plight of young entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley.
‘Silicon Valley’ put many talented actors on Hollywood’s map, including Thomas Middleditch who portrays the socially awkward and fidgety coder Richard; Martin Starr, who portrays the seemingly apathetic and sardonic Gilfoyle who is also a Satan worshipper; Pakistani actor Kumail Nanjiani, who portrays Dinesh, who usually becomes the punch-line in Gilfoyle’s jokes, and Zach Woods, who portrays Jared, a man who quit his well-paying job and is so committed to Richard that he lives out of his home for a long period, and surprisingly he is a guy that “f**ks.”
Other pivotal roles are taken on by Amanda Crew as Monica Hall, Josh Brener as Big Head, T.J. Miller as Erlich Bachman, and Matt Ross as Gavin Belson.
The hilarious HBO show is created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler, and Dave Krinsky. Judge is known for many popular shows including, ‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ ‘King of the Hill,’ ‘The Goode Family,’ and the music-themed animation series ‘Tales from the Tour Bus.’
He has collaborated with both Altshuler and Krisky for ‘The Goode Family,’ and together they also executive produced and wrote several episodes of MTV’s return of ‘Beavis and Butt-head.’ Currently, they are working on ‘Woody Woodpecker,’ an animated feature, and also ‘Brigadier Gerard,’ in which Steve Carell is set to play Brigadier Gerard, while Ricky Gervais would play Napoleon.
