The HBO biting technology industry Silicone valley comes to an end with the sixth season being launched later this year, according to Variety.
The show follows the absurdist border movements and incidental successes of a group of startup employees trying to maneuver the technical world, find secure financing and defeat rival products from the giant, soulless companies they are trying to crush. It has been broadcast since April 2014 and was conceived by Beavis and Butthead maker and king of the hill co-maker Mike Judge, a former computer programmer who produces the director next to him Seinfeld alum and Barry co-maker Alec Berg.
Silicone valley focuses on main character Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), a software engineer who happens to come up with a new form of file compression that helps him and his fellow startup employees, Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani), on their way to a attempt to create a paradigm-shifting new product that they describe as a "new internet." Comedian TJ Miller was also a main cast member as the excited entrepreneur Erlich Bachman, until he was written off of the show at the end of season 4.
On the way, Silicone valley has succeeded in giving sharp and timely comments about the lifelike Silicon Valley and all the often ridiculous situations, stereotypes and trends that arise from the technology hub of Northern California. Over the years, however, as technology has become one of the most powerful industries in the world and society has turned more against it, the more lighthearted and satirical approach to the show has struggled to get the darker and impossibly fast. to hold. to move the reality of the real deal.
At the end of the fifth season, Pied Piper managed to prevent the transfer of control over his new, unprecedented network to the competing Hooli, the comic composition of Facebook and Google and a double-crossing rival in China. That results in a rare bit of optimistic success for the group as their virtual currencies begin to rise and Pied Piper can finally start expanding.
However, it will be interesting to see how it stands out in the sixth season, which is planned to be the shortest ever with only seven episodes. Judge and Berg prefer a sitcom-inspired story-telling reset approach, where no matter how far the characters go or how frightening the consequences seem, Richard and crew eventually return to the first square, mostly due to an unforeseen and miraculous event that avoids calamity, but also clears real progress. It must inevitably be a challenge to tie it together neatly and in such a short time. Silicone valley will become the third high-profile HBO show later Game of Thrones and Veep, to end this year.
"Silicone valley has been a highlight for our career and life, "Berg and Judge said in a joint statement Variety. "We will desperately miss it, but we've always shown the way to Pied Piper, and season 6 seems to be the appropriate conclusion. We owe eternal thanks to our incredible cast, crew and partners at HBO. At one point there is only so much that we can do to make the world a better place. & # 39;
