The HBO comedy series “Silicon Valley” will be missing one of its key players when season five rolls around, with The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reporting that T.J. Miller is leaving the show.
HBO confirmed the news today, saying in a statement: “The producers of ‘Silicon Valley’ and T.J. Miller have mutually agreed that T.J. will not return for season 5. In Erlich Bachman, T.J. has brought to life an unforgettable character, and while his presence on the show will be missed, we appreciate his contribution and look forward to future collaborations.”
THR adds: “News of Miller’s departure comes mere hours after HBO renewed the tech-spoofing comedy for another season and halfway through the show’s fourth season run. Created by Mike Judge and Alec Berg, the series been a critical hit since its debut in 2014, winning two Emmy Awards along the way.”
