SILICON VALLEY

The ten-episode second season of SILICON VALLEY premieres Monday, April 13 at 10am (9am Thai.Jkt) on HBO, immediately after the worldwide premiere of Game of Thrones, with a same day encore at 10pm (9pm Thai.Jkt).

After taking the tech world by storm last season at TechCrunch Disrupt, Richard and rest of the Pied Piper team – Erlich, Jared, Dinesh and Gilfoyle – look ahead to a bright and profitable future. But their success may be in jeopardy, thanks to big changes at Raviga, the company created by Peter Gregory, and Nucleus, the competing compression platform launched by Hooli CEO, Gavin Belson.

A collaboration between Mike Judge and Alec Berg, who each directed five episodes, series regulars on SILICON VALLEY include Thomas Middleditch as Richard Hendricks; T.J. Miller as Erlich; Josh Brener as Big Head; Martin Starr as Gilfoyle; Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh; Zach Woods as Jared; Amanda Crew as Monica; Matt Ross as Gavin Belson; Suzanne Cryer, who joins the cast as Raviga managing partner Laurie Bream; and Jimmy O. Yang as Jian-Yang.
