HBO announced today that Silicon Valley has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes one month ahead of the veteran comedy's fourth-season finale on June 25. Created by Mike Judge, the half-hour series boasts a solid fanbase along with multiple award wins over the years.

Partially inspired by Judge's experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late '80s, the comedy follows the lives of a group of high tech workers in the Palo Alto area of California. While this group of social outcasts may be the most qualified to succeed in this modern environment, they are not necessarily capable of handling the success.

Look for Season 5 of Silicon Valley in 2018.
