Veep, HBO's Emmy-winning comedy, will end its run with a final seventh season airing in 2018, according to showrunners. Which seems odd, considering that the political satire show would have been even more relevant in one of the most controversial presidential administrations in recent memory.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus told The Hollywood Reporter that she and fellow executive producer David Mandel thought for a long time about when it was right to end the series.
"It became clear that this season should be the last season," Louis-Dreyfus said. "We don't want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series."
