'Silicon Valley' returned for its fifth season with a jab at the ongoing tumult at Facebook. The show took a jab at the fake news that claimed Russians used the app to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The fifth season of 'Silicon Valley' debuted without star T.J. Miller. The show used its cynical viewpoint to take sly aim at Miller's character while also keeping the tone consistent with previous seasons.
T.J. Miller's exit from 'Silicon Valley' was linked with his 'demons' that manifested in his actions on the set. The 36-year-old was actually asked to come back for a few episodes on season 5 but he refused.
