Public speaking has never been a strength of Pied Piper CEO Richard (Thomas Middleditch), and the prospect of addressing a group of new employees proves to be a bit too much in HBO’s trailer for season five of Silicon Valley.

The Emmy-nominated comedy focuses on a tech-savvy group that struggles with success in the titular Silicon Valley

In addition to Middleditch, the cast this season includes Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Suzanne Cryer and Jimmy O. Yang.

Missing from that lineup is T.J. Miller, who left the series at the end of last season, but tweeted his praise saying, “See I told you the show would be better without me on it.”

The show is created by John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky and Mike Judge, who also executive produces alongside Alec Berg, Clay Tarver, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally, Jamie Babbit and Jim Kleverweis.

Season five of Silicon Valley returns March 25 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
