A day after airing their season premieres, Veep and SiliconValley have been renewed by HBO for a fifth and third season, respectively.

Last week, B&C reported that Veepcreator Armando Iannucci would depart the show after the current fourth season. HBO tapped Curb Your Enthusiasm alum David Mandel to take over Veep, making a fifth season pickup essentially a fait accompli.

The two comedies' Sunday night companions Game of Thrones – which also had its season premiere Sunday — and Last Week Tonight have already been renewed for 2016.
