The final season of HBO’s political comedy “Veep” will pit Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer against Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons) for the White House.
HBO released a trailer Monday for the seventh and final season of “Veep,” which will debut on March 31. And from the looks of it, Meyer is disgusted with the state of the “disgusting” U.S. and Ryan is campaigning for the support of anti-vaxxers.
So basically, it’s typical “Veep” stuff.
Fans of the Emmy-winning series will remember that in Season 6, Jonah was diagnosed with testicular cancer and lost all of his hair. Even after surviving, he kept his head bald to win sympathy, which didn’t turn out so well — though it did result in one of the best meltdowns of the series. Season 6 ended with both Ryan and Meyer deciding to run for president.
We’re all screwed — so, not much different than real life.
The final season of the HBO comedy will have seven episodes. The series’ first season was eight episodes, and subsequent seasons expanded to 10 episodes apiece. Season 7 was delayed after Louis-Dreyfus was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, and production resumed last October.
Louis-Dreyfus has won the Emmy six years in a row for her role. The show itself won the Outstanding Comedy Series award in 2016 and 2017.
