Emmy Award-winning HBO comedy Veep will end its run after Season 7
HBO’s Emmy Award-winning comedy series Veep will end its run after Season 7. This move comes just months after the show was renewed for a seventh season. Veep has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy for six years in a row and won for seasons 4 and 5. Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won five consecutive Primetime Emmys for Best Actress for playing the role of Selina Meyer. She’s nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy again this year.
“The decision to bring ‘Veep’ to a close at the end of next season is bittersweet,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “We love the show and everyone involved but respect the producers’ choice to bring Selina Meyer’s journey to its conclusion after an extraordinary run of critical and award-winning acclaim. Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ comedic brilliance infused Selina with a dynamic presence and a vibrant wit which will ensure her a place in the history of television’s most iconic comedic characters. We look forward to producing the seventh and final season.”
The Emmy-winning comedy series Veep concluded its ten-episode sixth season Sunday, June 25. The show stars Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the former vice president and president, who is struggling to navigate uncharted political territory. The ensemble cast also includes two-time Emmy winner Tony Hale, Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky, Emmy nominee Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Kevin Dunn, Emmy nominee Gary Cole and Sam Richardson.
Veep was created by Armando Iannucci, executive produced by David Mandel, Frank Rich, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lew Morton and Morgan Sackett.
