Many of the cast and producers for HBO’s “Silicon Valley” (T.J. Miller was absent working on a movie project) were present in San Diego this afternoon for a Comic-Con panel, and for those who attended, we had a lengthy discussion about horses, “the jacket,” and the story of the third season. If you are going to a panel at the convention based solely on having a good time, odds are that this is one that will be a crowd-pleaser.
However, this is not a panel that tends to drop much scoop on the next season, and there’s a perfectly good reason for that: Things are still fluid, per executive producer Alec Berg. This past season, for example, the original plan was for the Skunkworks storyline to last for a lengthy span of time. However, the writers weren’t finding the rhythm that they hoped for with it, and as a result of that they pulled the chute on this and went in a different direction.
One general tease that Berg offered was that if the Pied Piper team was enormous successful and rarely failed, the show wouldn’t be as much fun. Therefore, we don’t expect the future to be smooth sailing for the group, no matter what does await them. We would personally like to see them find some more success, but that doesn’t mean that they have to have a flawless journey to the top. Seeing them stumble while in the public eye and making money could be ridiculously entertaining, and we saw some of that when it looked like the Pied Piper platform was going to be a hit.
Season 4 of “Silicon Valley” will more than likely not premiere until next year.
