‘Veep’ to End With Season 7
    2017-September-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

“VEEP,” HBO’s acclaimed comedy, Emmy powerhouse and arguably the funniest comedy on television, will end its run with a final seventh season in 2018.

“The decision to bring ‘Veep’ to a close at the end of next season is bittersweet,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming. “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.”

The move to end the show comes four months after HBO renewed the series for a seventh season. Louis-Dreyfus is currently nominated for best actress in a comedy series at the Sept. 17 Primetime Emmy Awards for her role as Meyer, a U.S. vice president and subsequent president. If she wins, it will be Louis-Dreyfus sixth consecutive Emmy for the role.

“We don’t want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series,” said Louis-Dreyfu. “Let’s face it. This has been a role of a lifetime,” said Louis-Dreyfus, who knows something about good roles, having played Elaine Benes for nine seasons on “Seinfeld.”

For her part, Louis-Dreyfus was very thoughtful and open about the process of ending something that clearly means so much to her. And, of course, it wasn’t her first time in this position. “I struggled with it,” she said. “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.”

All previous roles led up to this, Louis-Dreyfus said — you learn something and evolve with each one — but playing Meyer was the role of a lifetime. “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.”

Louis-Dreyfus noted that there’s another full 10-episode season still to shoot and experience, so looking too far into the future isn’t something she’s considered much. “I’m not retiring, if that’s what you’re asking,” she said. “I love to work.” And her character has been a quintessentially great character to manifest. “My favorite go-to thing about her is I like to fall back into Selina’s narcissism. It’s delightful and it takes many forms.”
