My admiration for Silicon Valley isn’t necessarily a secret. On multiple occasions, I’ve called the sensationally funny hi-tech satire one of the most pointed, quippiest, intelligent and observational series on television, and I can’t wait to see it return. Thankfully, there’s not too much longer to go now, as the nerdy comedy airs its next season in April, and as seen in this latest trailer, it’ll try something new.
In a surprising turn of events, Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) is leaving Pied Piper, the rising company he founded. Instead, the CEO is going to spread his wings and use his timid intelligence elsewhere, which might not necessarily be the wisest decision to make at this time. He insists on keeping the name, though, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to be a challenge.
T.J. Miller, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, Martin Starr and Amanda Crew are among those set to return, but how they’ll be involved in the upcoming season in light of this recent turn of events is unknown. As it was announced last week, Silicon Valley season 4 arrives on April 23, and though the tech-based program doesn’t quite have the same fanbase as say, Game of Thrones, you can bet that there will still be many, many people tuning in to see what comes next for these characters.
After all, this is a show that only continues to excel with each passing season. The creators grow and propel the stakes in compelling and interesting ways, all while the central characters themselves keep their charming, boyish group dynamic. That’ll certain be tested with this newest, and presumably much different season, however, and I’ll wait with nervous breath for the show’s scheduled return. It’s going to be an interesting one, that’s for sure.
