It's a sad day for all the start-up nerds out there. On Friday morning, HBO confirmed that the forthcoming sixth season of Silicon Valley will be the comedy's last. Currently in pre-production for the final season, which will consist of just seven episodes (a shorter season than the typical 8-10), the creators thanked their fans, saying, "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."
Kumail Nanjiani put a comical spin on the imminent cancelation, but it still hurts. Season 6 is expected to premiere later this year on HBO.
