All three shows are to return with their latest season premieres Sunday.

Based on the bestselling fantasy books by George R.R. Martin, the Emmy Award-winning Game of Thrones chronicles an epic struggle for power in a fictional, medieval world. Going into its sixth season this weekend, it stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Diana Rigg, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Jonathan Pryce.

Silicon Valley offers a comic look "at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success," a synopsis said.

Season 3 regulars include Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Jimmy O. Yang and Suzanne Cryer.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns as U.S. President Selina Meyer in Season 5 of the political comedy Veep. The ensemble also features Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole and Sam Richardson.
