Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Veep Renewed By HBO. HBO has officially renewed three of its April 24, 2016 returning TV series: Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Veep. Each show has been renewed for one additional season. The announcement was made by HBO programming president Michael Lombardo today, in a move that shows how strongly the network believes in its returning slate of comedies and drama TV series. The renewals also keep the creative teams, both in front of the camera and behind the cameras, with HBO for one more year, though contracts will have to be renegotiated.

This move by HBO was expected. Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Veep have been strong performers with critics and ratings, with Game of Thrones consistently being one of the top rated TV shows each year. I can’t imagine though that the series will go on past another three seasons. Producers are already creating storylines that are not present in the book series to advance original story-lines. That can only be sustained viably for so long. Better to end strongly than with an abysmal final season i.e. Fringe.

Silicon Valley and Veep are both comedy gold for HBO, with the latter’s biting satire having earned it multiple Emmy awards and nominations.

Game of Thrones is no slouch in the awards category either.

Game of Thrones begins its sixth season at 9pm on April 24, 2016. Silicon Valley begins its third season at 10pm on April 24, 2016. Veep begins its fifth season at 10:30pm on April 24, 2016.
