Veep is an American show in the political satire comedy genre. The show can be watched on HBO and first came out on April 22nd of 2012. The creator of the show is Armando Iannucci, a Scottish writer. It is an adaption of his British sitcom named as The Thick of It. HBO entertainment and Dundee productions are backing up his project. Armando Iannucci is the executive producer besides Christopher Godsick, Frank Rich, and so on.
The show gained tremendous popularity due to its relevancy with the American Political context. It has not given up any opportunities for mocking the hypocrisy and fallacy of American politics. The show has managed to make a strong fan base and also have been praised by critics. It has also won many awards, such as the 17 Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and many more.
The show had a hard time putting its mark in the industry. The show was initially capitalized by ABC. Later, HBO and NBC began to show interest in the show, and Iannucci got involved as well, and it resulted in a popular show.
The cast of Veep season 4
The main cast of the show is played by Julia Louis Dreyfus, who plays the role of Selina Meyer. Other important casts include Amy Brookheimer, Mike McLintock, and Gary Walsh. The upcoming season would be featuring a new cast who will sharpen the political satire of the show.
The storyline of Veep season 4
The show revolves around the political career of Selina Meyer. She belonged to an unknown party but a democratic one. She becomes the Vice President of the US but doesn’t find it as she has thought initially. Soon she finds out that the president has not given her a lot of jobs to carry out. She is initially shown to be fully dependent on her advisors, but as the show progresses, she begins to gain power and authority.
The unique feature of the show is its satire and how it doesn’t leave a chance from attacking the hypocrisy of the political system. A lot of swearing goes on in the white house, and rough language is used as well. The show is filled with critiques she jokes, and the upcoming season is expected to continue the trend.
The update of Veep Season 8
Season 7 of Veep came out on 31 March 2019, and an announcement date for the next season is not out yet. HBO and Iannucci had mentioned that season 7 would be the last show. However, there are still chances for the network to make a season 8. Our guesses are that the show can be renewed in late 2020 or in 2021. Looking at the fans’ support for the show, it would make sense for the production team to come up with yet another season before shutting down the show. The unique sense of the show in which it attacks the evils of the political system is enjoyed by the fans, but it seems like they have to wait for the next season.
