I could not be more excited for the return of HBO’s comedy series Silicon Valley. It was not only one of the best comedies of last year, but one of the best shows overall. (So if you haven’t caught up, I suggest you do so immediately; you really are missing out).
Mike Judge hit a chord with his series’ timely material that really came to life thanks to an awesome cast — Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr — all of whom are fantastic in their varied roles.
After a great Season One finale that elevated the art of the dick joke to heights heretofore unknown, the guys of Pied Piper appear hard at work at Erlich’s incubator. And somehow, the trailer makes their geeky work look completely badass (I mean, who could get a coaster in place that quickly besides Jared? No one!)
Erlich, of course, steals the show with his indignation over several things I won’t spoil. The trailer may be short, but it highlights all of the reasons why waiting until April 12th for the show to come back is agonizing. Apparently, “This spring, shit gets real.”
Silicon Valley will return to HBO Sunday, April 12th at 10 p.m.
