The tech comedy series ended its six-season run in December. The decision to end the series was made by showrunners Mike Judge and Alec Berg. “We just sat down this season and started writing and just felt it out and just decided we had a really good way to go out this season. So that was that,” Judge said in an interview with Slash Film of how they came to the decision to end the series with Season 6.
Also, part of Judge and Berg’s reason for ending the series was the fact that more tech companies have now become very serious. “It made it a lot harder to just be fun and loose and goofy and just make jokes because there was a real weight and import to what was going on,” Judge told The Hollywood Reporter. “You get to this place where people are making very sustainable arguments that Facebook and Twitter and these other companies have torn the fabric of society irreparably … and it ceases to just become a goofy, fun little show.”
