A Day After Their Season Premieres, HBO Renews Veep and Silicon Valley

Sunday night comedies get the green light

The day after the season premieres of Veep and Silicon Valley, HBO announced it's renewing the two Sunday night comedies for 2016.

"Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I'm immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year," said Michael Lombardo, HBO programming chief.

Silcon Valley returned Sunday night for its 10-episode second season with fictional startup Pied Piper in search of venture capital funding. Veep's return featured now President Selina Meyer—played by Emmy-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus—fumbling her way through an address to Congress.

While the cast of Veep will be back for Season 5, creator Armando Iannucci will not, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

HBO's other Sunday night staples, Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, already got the green light for next season.
