HBO's Veep to End After Seven Seasons
HBO has announced that the seventh season of Veep, which will air in 2018, will be its last.
HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys said, "The decision to bring Veep to a close at the end of next season is bittersweet. 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."
Veep has been nominated six years in a row for Emmy awards and has taken home the past two Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series. Julia Louis-Dreyfus' performance has earned her five consecutive Primetime Emmys, two SAG Awards, two Critics' Choice Television Awards, a Television Critics Association Award, and five consecutive Golden Globe nominations. Supporting actors Anna Chlumsky, Gary Cole and Matt Walsh have also earned nominations for their performances.
