The fans and watchers of the show expected that the next season will start to air in the middle of the next year, 2019, but this did not happen. Instead, it was announced that production for the next season, which will be show’s sixth season will be delayed as one of the executive producers is working on another show.

The announcement also stated Silicon Valley Season 6 will be the final one for the series. Silicon Valley is ending because the writers of the show feel that the story has run its course.

As with the lead character – Richard Hendricks, software engineers who work in Silicon Valley admitted to relating to the struggles he had.

Bill Gates was one of the more notable people who also said that the show was relatable and it reminded him of his time as a younger man trying to pitch his product to investors. However, there were critics who did not find the show worthy of all the praise it was getting. There were also notable figures who believed that the satire was farfetched and overstretched. One of such people was the technological magnate Elon Musk, who only saw the first episode and criticized the writers of the show, saying that the writers lacked substantial experience of working and living in Silicon Valley to actually satirize the lives of the people living there. He received backlash for his statements as a majority of the audience could see that the show was an accurate representation of the politics of the valley.
