Julia Louis-Dreyfus Confirms ‘Veep’ Will End With Season 7 in 2018

Veep Season 7 Final Ending Confirmed

HBO’s Veep may have outlasted Selina Meyer’s Vice Presidency and Oval Office tenure, but the series itself must eventually resign. So it is, that star Julia Louis-Dreyfus now confirms next year’s seventh season will be the last for the Emmy-winning political satire.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news with repeat Emmy-winner Louis-Dreyfus, who stated of Season 7 “We don’t want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series.” The decision was made with showrunner David Mandel, who took over for series creator Armando Iannucci after Season 4.

Louis-Dreyfus was quick to note that the end of Veep wouldn’t in any way mean her own retirement (she’s also up for a sixth consecutive Emmy win for Lead Actress in a Comedy this month), adding of the decision:

I struggled with it. And then it just hit me. It’s hard to say goodbye to such a good thing. We struggled with this at Seinfeld as well … I’m not kidding — I really feel this is my baby and I don’t want to mess it up. I would hate to end on a less-than note. That would make me nuts.

Season 7 will still consist of a full ten episodes that have yet to shoot, but will Selina Meyer’s Veep journey end on a high note? Stay tuned for the latest.
