HBO Renews VEEP for a Third Season

     May 1, 2013


Good news Selina Meyer fans — HBO’s excellent, biting political satire Veep has been renewed for a third season.  The show has had steady ratings thanks to a big lead-in from Game of Thrones (last year it was paired in a programming bloc with Girls), and the premium network is showing its support three episodes into the series’ second season by going ahead and electing Selina for another term (maybe the President will call?)

Veep, created by Armando Iannucci (In The Loop), stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the hapless Vice-President, along with Anna ChlumskyTony HaleReid ScottMatt Walsh and Sufe Bradshaw as her staff. Veep airs Sunday nights at 10 p.m.
