Jon Stewart's animated shorts are out, but Veep and Silicon Valley are still in at HBO. The network has announced both Emmy-winning shows will be renewed for another season, with new episodes airing in 2018, reports Variety. All original cast members will return for Veep's seventh season, per Deadline, having received major raises. However, TJ Miller (the scene-stealing Erlich Bachman) will not return for Silicon Valley's fifth season, reports USA Today. The current seasons of both Sunday comedies wrap on June 25. On the HBO front, the network just released a new Game of Thrones trailer. (More HBO stories.)
