Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ term as Veep isn’t over yet. The biting political comedy returned for a fourth season last night, but HBO has already decided to bring the series and Silicon Valley back for a fifth and third season, respectively.
“Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year,” HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “Along with Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, both of which have already been renewed for 2016, they give HBO a stellar Sunday night like no other.”
Veep‘s fifth season in 2016 will be its first without creator Armando Iannucci, who announced last week that he was stepping down as showrunner—something he had hinted at in the past. Curb Your Enthusiasm Executive Producer David Mandel will take over.
