HBO's VEEP to Conclude Series With Season 7

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO's VEEP will come to an end with season 7 in 2018.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus says it is the right time to end the show, "It became clear that this season should be the last season. We don't want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series."

Executive producer David Mandel echoed Louis-Dreyfus, saying, "It was just a very natural thing. We don't want to repeat ourselves or be boring. It's bittersweet but it's right."

Shooting for the final season, which will consist of 10 episodes, begins filming on October 16. HBO's programming president Casey Bloys commented that he is also bittersweet about the ending, but stands behind whatever decision Louis-Dreyfus and Mandel make.

Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. VEEP follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington. Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style.

The ensemble cast of the show also includes Emmy® winner Tony Hale ("Arrested Development") as Gary, VicePresident Meyer's right-hand man; Emmy® nominee Anna Chlumsky ("In the Loop") as Amy, her chief of staff; Reid Scott ("My Boys") as Dan, an ambitious political aide; Matt Walsh (HBO's "Hung") as Mike, Vice President Meyer's weathered spokesperson; Timothy C. Simons ("Days Together") as Jonah, a White House liaison turned political blogger; Sufe Bradshaw ("Overnight") as Sue, Vice President Meyer's executive assistant; and Kevin Dunn (HBO's "Luck") as Ben, the president's chief of staff.
