Despite the departure of T.J. Miller as Erlich Bachman, there’s no doubt in our minds that Silicon Valley is going to remain one of the funniest comedies on television. While Erlich was certainly a hilarious character, the real fans know that the strongest comedic moments of the show come from Richard Hendrik’s painful awkwardness.
But as we all know, the show must go on, even without Erlich Bachman. In the first teaser trailer for season 5, HBO teases how Richard Hendrik’s and the Pied Piper team will be handling their expansion. And if we’ve come to know anything about Richard over the last four seasons, then we know he’s going to find a way to f*ck this all up sooner rather than later.
Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Suzanne Cryer, and Jimmy O. Yang will all returning for the fifth season of Silicon Valley, which is set to premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 10 pm ET.
Created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, Silicon Valley focuses on five (now four) young men who founded a startup company in Silicon Valley.
