‘Silicon Valley’ Season 6: Production Delayed Until Summer 2019

Production on the sixth season of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” has been delayed until mid-next year, Variety has confirmed.

The comedy series will now begin production on the new season in summer 2019, meaning the season may not air until 2020.

“As Alec Berg is a showrunner on both ‘Barry’ and ‘Silicon Valley,’ the schedule was structured to allow Alec to wrap on ‘Barry’ before starting work on ‘Silicon Valley,'” an HBO spokesperson said in a statement to Variety.

“Barry,” HBO’s new comedy starring Bill Hader as a hitman with dreams of being an actor, debuted back in March and was renewed for a second season at the same time “Silicon Valley” was renewed for its sixth.

“Silicon Valley”–which stars Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods and Amanda Crew–has been nominated for multiple Emmys throughout its run, including best comedy series. It has won two of the awards to date, both in 2015.

The series was created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler, and Dave Krinsky. Judge and Berg executive produce along with Clay Tarver, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Jim Kleverweis, and Jamie Babbit. Anthony King, Graham Wagner, and Ron Weiner are co-executive producers. Carrie Kemper, Carson Mell, Jonathan Dotan, Todd Silverstein and Josh Lieb are consulting producers.

TV Line first reported the production delay.
