HBO on Wednesday released the trailer for season 5 of Silicon Valley, the show’s first since comedian T.J. Miller’s departure in 2017, and it looks like we’re teed up for another optimistically precarious year for Pied Piper.
In the clip, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) is introduced to his startup’s new staff of 50 employees and asked to make a quick inspiring speech. Unfortunately for everyone there, he’s still the nervous, shy guy who’s struggled with his CEO role from the get-go, and ends up puking behind his desk:
Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr are all back reprising their roles, and the show seems to have a concertedly more straightforward feel without requisite stoner T.J. Miller. It might be for the best, though. Since Miller’s departure, the comedian has been accused of harassment and sexual misconduct from a college girlfriend, and then later an actress and a trans critic.
The new season premieres March 25.
