Episode 5.01 - 5.06
EMMY®-WINNING COMEDY SERIES SILICON VALLEY RETURNS FOR ITS FIFTH SEASON MARCH 25, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

The future is now.

Pied Piper finally has enough funding for proper offices and new employees, and to bring its peer-to-peer internet to the world – but leveling up introduces a whole new class of obstacles. While Richard struggles to lead a larger team and play with the big dogs, the rest of the team adjusts to new staff, new digs and new anxieties. Meanwhile, Hooli rival Gavin Belson has returned to power, but finds the threat of Pied Piper, and its boldness, hard to shake.

The Emmy®-winning and Golden Globe-nominated series comedy series SILICON VALLEY takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A collaboration between Mike Judge and Alec Berg, the show returns for its eight-episode fifth season SUNDAY, MARCH 25 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.

The Pied Piper guys are closer to real fame and fortune than ever before, as their new decentralized internet “PiperNet” approaches its debut. But more money brings more problems. As Richard struggles with the responsibilities of being the CEO of a rapidly growing company, along with pressures from investors Monica and Laurie, Dinesh and Gilfoyle adjust to a new team, Jared works his hardest to hold everything together, Big Head continues to stumble his way into good fortune and Jian-Yang proves there’s nothing he won’t do to make some fast cash. Meanwhile, at Hooli, reinstated CEO Gavin’s desire to stay relevant threatens to consume him as he seeks to destroy the competition.
