Finally on the brink of success, Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) and the Pied Piper team return for the funniest season yet in HBO’s hit comedy Silicon Valley: The Complete Fifth Season, coming to DVD September 4, 2018. In a season which earned seven total 2018 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, season five “is still capable of extracting gut-busting comedy” (Slant Magazine).
The return of executive producers Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head) and Alec Berg’s (Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm) tech-skewering comedy finds the Pied Piper guys emerging from the fourth season’s chaos, as they get closer than they’ve ever been to real fame and fortune. But with more money, inevitably, comes more problems. While Richard struggles to be a leader and play with the big dogs, the rest of the team adjusts to new faces, new digs and new anxieties. Always looming is Hooli rival Gavin Belson, who has returned to power but finds the threat of Pied Piper, and its boldness, hard to shake. Continuing to mine the over-the-top world of Silicon Valley for humor and poignancy, this season sees Pied Piper facing higher stakes, greater competition and even more opportunities to screw it all up.
Starring Thomas Middleditch (Joshy), Zach Woods (The Office), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Josh Brener (Maron), Amanda Crew (Table 19), Matt Ross (Big Love), Jimmy O. Yang (upcoming Crazy Rich Asians) and Suzanne Cryer (The Fosters), the Silicon Valley: The Complete Fifth Season DVD includes all eight, 30-minute episodes, with a Season 4 Recap.
