Silicon Valley Stars Talk 'Turdmonster' Twist, a More Dramatic (?) Season 4

HBO’s Silicon Valley recently closed Season 3 with its characters in “kind of happy” place, series lead Thomas Middleditch allows. But that likely will not last for long.

After all, Richard and the others still have that “turdmonster” Erlich — aka the “most blowhard, pompous character” — to deal with, Kumail Nanjiani, who plays Dinesh, and Middleditch told Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE.

Also pointing to more drama ahead is the fact that, as Zach Woods “scooped” for his castmates, the HBO comedy is adding some, well, drama writers to the staff for Season 4.

Also in the video Q&A above, the gents and leading lady Amanda Crew try to make a s–tty new catchphrase happen; Woods tries to one-up the cast’s previous, successful Game of Thrones prediction; there is a report on some accidental fondling; and Emmy nominee Middleditch takes a first crack at a possible, Trumpian acceptance speech.
