What's more, the final season will span just seven episodes, becoming the lowest episode order in the history of the series. 

"Silicon Valley has been a career and life highlight for us. 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," said executive producers Mike Judge and Alec Berg in a statement.

"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."

Says HBO programming EVP Amy Gravitt, “It’s been quite a ride since the pilot, when Richard Hendricks’ algorithm first caught the eye of Peter Gregory and Gavin Belson."

"In the meantime, our culture’s entire relationship with technology has been transformed, and Alec and Mike’s meticulous storytelling has managed to stay ahead of it every step of the way….. Silicon Valley is just the beginning of many more collaborations with these hilarious writers and performers, as well as our standout crew.”

Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, Martin Starr, and T.J. Miller.

It is set in the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.
