'Veep' Final Season 7 Premiere Date - Julia Louis-Dreyfus

HBO Sets Return Dates For Big Little Lies Veep and More

HBO Sets Return Dates For Big Little Lies Veep and More

Veep is ending this year, and you better believe its legacy is not lost on its creators and star Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The show will always be known for portraying a female president fighting the patriarchy, for brilliantly being just as batsh- insane as real political events and also somehow predicting them too.

That is why the final season is shorter than those of the past - but even though it will consist of only seven episodes, Mandel said there are "more than 10 episodes worth of material jammed into them".

What was it like to film a final chapter to Selina's story?

Veep succeeded in doing more with a lot less in its final season, promises EP Dave Mandel and leading lady Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

"When we shut down for Julia's cancer... the odd benefit. was a year ago, I became very aware of how the storm and drag of politics was so changing, and it did give us a chance to sit back and [discuss], 'What are politics about?'" Mandel revealed.

"I was so overcome in joy and grief, a joy and grief mashup, as this show ended, and it was really surprising to me".

"We've been through a lot as a group, with illness and losing people, it's been an enormous, huge journey but one that's been extremely powerful for us personally", she added. "It's not lost on me that it's not something that comes along with frequency". "I don't know how else to say it".

Sala family speak of 'infinite sadness' as body recovered
Manchester City goal poacher Sergio Aguero, who incidentally is Sala's countryman tweeted: "Rest in peace, Emiliano". The small Argentine town of Progreso, where the footballer lived for most of his childhood, was also in mourning.

"I am a patriot and I am very unhappy with our current political situation - and this, by the way, has nothing to do with 'Veep, ' this is me talking right now", Louis-Dreyfus noted.

While they were of course mum on exactly how things play out, they did tease an unpredictable ending that Dreyfus said she was happy with.

"Veep" has won the Emmy for best comedy series three times, and Louis-Dreyfus has earned six consecutive best actress Emmys for the role, surpassing the totals of past female comedy icons like Mary Tyler Moore or Lucille Ball. "I am emotional person to begin with", Dreyfus said, "but it really caught me by surprise".

"I think it's an important conversation to have about health and health care", the former Seinfeld star said.

Louis-Dreyfus told ET last October that Veep was part of the reason she chose to make her battle with cancer public. "I'll leave it for you to determine whether or not that's a good thing". Added Mandel: "I was a crying wreck". "I was really pleased with the reaction".

HBO announced Friday that the seventh and final season of the hit political satire will premiere March 31.
