HBO has renewed the comedy series "Veep" for a fourth season and "Silicon Valley" for a second season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The renewals follow the recent two-season renewal of "Game of Thrones."

Created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar nominee for co-writing In the Loop), "Veep" stars Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about. The Emmy-nominated and Writers Guild Award-winning series kicked off its ten-episode third season Sunday, April 6 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).

In addition to Louis-Dreyfus, the ensemble cast for the third season includes Emmy winner Tony Hale, Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw and Kevin Dunn.

Mike Judge (Office Space, “Beavis & Butt-head,” “King of the Hill”) brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in the new comedy series "Silicon Valley". Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ‘80s, the show is a collaboration between Judge and Alec Berg (“Seinfeld,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), and began its eight-episode first season Sunday, April 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m.).

Cast regulars for the first season include Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew and the late Christopher Evan Welch. Matt Ross guest stars.

"Veep" was created by Armando Iannucci; executive producers, Armando Iannucci, Christopher Godsick and Frank Rich; co-executive producers, Simon Blackwell and Tony Roche; producers, Stephanie Laing and Julia Louis-Dreyfus; supervising producers, Chris Addison, Roger Drew, Sean Gray, Ian Martin and Will Smith.
