The satire of HBO's technology industry Silicon Valley is coming to an end with its sixth season, which will be aired later this year, according to Variety.
The program follows the absurd struggles and occasional successes of a group of emerging employees trying to maneuver the world of technology, obtain funds and defeat the rival products of giant, soulless corporations that try to crush them. It was issued since April 2014 and was conceived by Beavis and Butthead creator and King of the hill co-creator Mike Judge, a former computer programmer who was an executive producer along with Seinfeld alum and Barry co-creator Alec Berg.
Silicon Valley focuses on the main character Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), a software engineer who invents a new form of file compression that takes him and his startup partners, Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani), into a trip to the attempt to create a new product that changes paradigm, describe it as a "new internet". Comedian TJ Miller was also a member of the main cast as fallen businessman Erlich Bachman, until he was removed from the program at the end of season 4.
In the path, Silicon Valley has managed to provide sharp and timely comments about real-life Silicon Valley and all the situations, stereotypes and often ridiculous tendencies that spring from the technology center of Northern California. However, over the years, as technology has inflated into one of the most powerful industries on the planet and society has taken a more adverse stance against it, the program's most joyful and satirical approach has struggled to keep up with the darkest and incredibly fast. Moving the reality of the real deal.
At the end of the fifth season, Pied Piper manages to avoid giving up control of his unprecedented new network to competitor Hooli, the comedic composed of Facebook and Google, and a double-crossing opponent in China. That translates into a rare optimistic success for the group as its virtual currency begins to take off and Pied Piper can finally begin to expand.
However, it will be interesting to see how it ends in the sixth season, which is scheduled to be the shortest in history with only seven episodes. The judge and Berg tend to favor a restart approach inspired by comedy stories, in which, no matter how far the characters go or how dire the consequences, Richard and the crew finally return to square one, so general to an unforeseen and miraculous event that avoids disaster, but also erases any real progress made. Having to tie it well, and in such a short time, will inevitably be a challenge. Silicon Valley will be the third high profile HBO show, after game of Thrones Y Veep, to finish this year.
"Silicon Valley It has been a highlight of our career and our lives, "Berg and Judge said in a joint statement delivered to Variety. "We will miss him desperately, but we always let Pied Piper's journey lead the way, and season 6 seems to be the right conclusion, we are always in debt to our amazing cast, crew and partners on HBO. we can do to make the world a better place.
