Veep to End with Season Seven

The HBO series Veep will conclude with the coming seventh season.

HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys said in a statement:

“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.”

Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole and Sam Richardson, the series won two Primetime Emmy awards, a WGA Award for Television Comedy and a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Louis-Dreyfus  has won 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 Chlumsky, Cole and Walsh also have received Emmy noms for their work on the series.
The original cast, whose deals ended after Season 6, had only signed one-year contracts to return for Season 7 so the series conclusion was expected. The seventh season will air in 2018.
