Tonight, we hopefully are going to learn the results of the Pied Piper – Hooli arbitration on the season 2 finale of “Silicon Valley,” and that in turn will help to pave the way a little bit for some of what will be coming next season.
We often like to speculate on the future of a show in this articles, but in writing this one before the finale airs, it’s really hard given how so much hinges on that key decision. Whatever happens, we imagine that it will at least not be somewhat that inhibits Richard Hendricks and company from being able to continue working, if for no other reason than that Pied Piper is the fabric of this show, and we cannot imagine it suddenly turning around and becoming them working with Hooli. Maybe you can do a show about trying to develop someone else’s company, but we’ve already invested two years here.
The great thing about this show regardless is that while we feel like some shows like “Veep” are relatively finite (there is only so long you can be in politics once you reach the Presidency), we feel like there are still countless stories left here to tell and this show could go on for as many seasons as those involved want there to be. Personally, we would hope that as soon as those involved start to feel like there is nothing interesting left to say, it will end there and not go on for another year or two as some shows do.
For the time being, though, we are in the golden age of this Silicon Valley. The ratings are great, the reviews fantastic, and the show just came off a great night at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. We’ll see what happens with the Emmys.
