The HBO comedy “Silicon Valley” is about to head into the final season, but first viewers are getting a glimpse of what the characters are up to this season.
In the season finale trailer, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) heads to D.C. for a hearing about the security of user data (sounds like Mark Zuckerberg).
“He looks like a child in a messy custody hearing…” Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) comments as Richard struggles to testify. “But you don’t feel sorry for him,” adds Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani). “You just want him to go away and not have any parents at all.”
“’Silicon Valley’ has been a career and life highlight for us,” said showrunners Mike Judge (who co-created the series) and Alec Berg back in May when the announcement that the show would be coming to an end was made. “We’ll miss it desperately, but we’ve always let Pied Piper’s journey guide the way, and Season 6 seems to be the fitting conclusion. We are forever indebted to our incredible cast, crew, and partners at HBO. At a certain point, there’s only so much we can do to make the world a better place.”
Season six of “Silicon Valley” premieres on Oct. 27.
