Two of HBO most popular comedy series Silicon Valley and Veep,  are set to be renewed by the network.

The pay channel commissioned season 5 of Veep and a third season of Silicon Valley on the morning after both shows returned on Sunday (April 12), in the US.

“Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year”, said Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming. “Along with ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,’ both of which have already been renewed for 2016, they give HBO a stellar Sunday night like no other.”

Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s David Mandel will serve as the showrunner on the 5th season of Veep, after news was released that Armando Iannucci would be stepping down from the role.

Veep follows Selina Meyer, the former Vice-President who has since become POTUS and finds that even the most banal action can have unexpected and far-reaching consequences. Whilst 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.

Veep and Silicon Valley airs on sky Atlantic in the UK with Silicon Valley set to air on April 20th and Veep to follow with its 4th season this summer.
