Not surprisingly, HBO has renewed its star comedies Veep and Silicon Valley.
The premium cable network announced the pickups on Thursday, with both shows expected to premiere new installments in 2018.
Both comedies have been pop culture and award winners, with Silicon Valley, now in its fourth season, having been nominated for 21 past Emmy Awards and winning two. Meanwhile, Veep has won 12 of 37 Emmy nominations, including five consecutive wins for Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Veep and Silicon Valley both wrap their current seasons next month, on June 25.
