HBO’s Silicon Valley returns for season two on April 12, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, right after season five of Game of Thrones premieres. The half hour comedy series was created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Kinsky and stars Thomas Middleditch, TJ Miller, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Suzanne Cryer, and Jimmy O. Yang.
The Plot: 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.
