HBO’s “Veep” Will End After Season 7
After seven hilarious seasons, HBO’s Veep will join the list of shows calling it quits. The series’ upcoming batch of episodes in 2018 will be its last, so savor every one.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the team put some serious thought into when to end the show, and they’re going out on their own terms — something not a lot of shows get to do. But that doesn’t mean saying goodbye isn’t hard.
“It was just a very natural thing,” Veep showrunner David Mandel told THR. “We don’t want to repeat ourselves or be boring. It’s bittersweet but it’s right.”
The show’s star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, agreed that ending the show before they wore out their welcome was important. “It became clear that this season should be the last season,” she said. “The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series.”
Dreyfus called Veep “the role of a lifetime.” In the show, her character, Selina Meyer, is a former senator who loses a presidential run and becomes the vice president (AKA Veep) instead. Eventually she does become president, but only for a short period of time. Season six saw her contemplating another presidential campaign.
Dreyfus has won five consecutive Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Emmys for her role, and is up for another one at the 2017 awards ceremony.
