In Awesome TV News: ‘Silicon Valley’ Gets the Green Light for Season 2

silicon-valley-cast

 

The “bad boys” of Palo Alto are getting renewed for a second season! The new HBO comedy, “Silicon Valley”, airs after “Game of Thrones” Sunday nights and runs for 30 minutes. The story revolves around a newly created startup called Pied Piper, designed and coded by lead man, Richard (Thomas Middleditch). Thomas Middleditch, fills the unlikely hero role perfectly. He is unintentionally funny and surprises people when he needs to. The entrepreneurial spirit that this show brings forward makes it fun to watch Richard and Pied Piper develop as a human and application, respectively.

Glad to see it is going to be brought back!

Phew! ‘Newsroom’ Will Be Renewed For It’s Third and Final Season

Source – Almost four months after its season two finale, “Newsroom” has been renewed by HBO for a third and final season.

“’The Newsroom’ is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” said HBO topper Michael Lombardo. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”

HBO brass had been hopeful about the media drama’s return since last summer, though spent months in negotiations with series creator Aaron Sorkin discussing scheduling and his other showbiz commitments. Topliner Jeff Daniels — who won an Emmy in 2013 for his portrayal of Will McAvoy in “Newsroom” — tweeted prematurely in September that the show had been renewed, only to then have to backtrack once HBO established that an official season three order had not been made.

After that, the show had been seemingly hanging in the balance, with many outlets reminding their readers time to time that “Newsroom” had not yet been renewed.

With the season three order now official, Variety has also confirmed that Sorkin has turned in script for Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic, which Sorkin was tapped to pen in spring 2012.

I’m glad this “maybe they will, maybe they won’t” seesaw battle is finally over. Newsroom is one of my favorite shows on TV, and it would’ve been a shame to not give it a sendoff season because of Sorkin’s feature film goals for 2014. He’s created a lot of likeable, and more importantly, watchable characters in Newsroom. I’ve grown to embrace the reality based backdrop he’s created over the last two years, and as a former intern for a news network, it’s cool to relive the behind the scenes chaos that sometimes goes along with reporting the news. I’m excited to see what Will and the gang have in store for us, and it’s always good news when I get to see sweet Olivia Munn show up on my TV screen. Mr. Sorkin, the ball is in your court.
