For the past 4 seasons of the hit HBO® tech comedy, Silicon Valley®, Richard Hendricks and the rest of the Pied Piper crew have done a great job at avoiding too many responsibilities. But in season 5, whether they’re ready or not, their start-up is entering the growth phase.
After last season’s departure of Erlich, the company is down a board member, but thanks to Laurie and Monica, they now have an office and 50 new employees. As expected, there are also some not so pleasant changes on the horizon. For one, Laurie and Monica will be overseeing all office activities, and despite their earlier “no dogs” policy, a few of Dinesh’s least favorite 4-legged barking companions have been added to their work space.
Despite the rapid change around them, Richard, Dinesh, Gilfoyle, and Jared are steadily working on their goal of launching a new Internet, and ultimately changing the world. Unfortunately, their top competitor, Gavin Belson, is still determined to take over or destroy Pied Piper. Meanwhile Dinesh and Gilfoyle are still giddily incompetent, Laurie and Monica are intent on micromanagement, and Richard’s leadership skills are still in development.
Things looked uncertain in the beginning, but now the Pied Piper team might finally become a real tech unicorn! But in typical Silicon Valley® fashion, there will be growing pains and it will be a hilarious journey from now to the IPO.
Have a look at the trailer below, and make sure to catch up on Season 5 of Silicon Valley® now!
