Tv Season Info

The presidential ambitions of Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) have never really gone away, it's just that the wannabe head of state can't stop putting her foot in her mouth or shooting it. Unfortunately, old habits die hard in Series 3 as Selina decides to throw her hat in the ring again, an announcement that renews the rivalry between Amy (Anna Chlumsky) and Dan (Reid Scott) to manage her campaign. Meanwhile, Mike (Matt Walsh) mixes business with pleasure; Gary (Tony Hale) suffers a physical setback that could threaten his job; and Jonah (Timothy Simons) tries to make a name for himself in the media. Later, as the race to primary season heats up, Selina relies on strategic advice from Ben (Kevin Dunn) and Kent (Gary Cole) to stay one step ahead of her opponents, including war hero Danny Chung (Randall Park) and former defense secretary George Maddox (Isiah Whitlock Jr.). With Sufe Bradshaw, Sarah Sutherland, Kathy Najimy, Christopher Meloni and Diedrich Bader.

Critic Reviews for Veep Season 3

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (10)

[Veep] is a smartly written comedy about the meaninglessness of words and rhetoric-a sharp take on the no content of content.

Top Critic

If you thought HBO's lean, mean political comedy moved quickly in its first two seasons, get ready for the ride of your life in Season 3.

Top Critic

The show works because all of its actors seem so human, so likeable, despite the words coming from their mouths.

Top Critic

It was a brilliant narrative move to shake up Meyer and her crack staff with the promise of the Presidency as it allows each of these self-centered nuts a chance to crank up their intensity now that a life-changing run is in their faces.

Squirm and squeal in equal measure at Armando Iannucci's comedy of exquisite discomfort.

Nov 6, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show does have an unpretentious quality that's somewhat refreshing amid the recent spate of D.C.-centric series.

Top Critic

This new lease on her political future adds a helping of fresh energy to the show.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Veep skewers everything in the American political system with quick, cut-throat slices. Everyone is horrible, unsavory and crass. They are all opportunistic monsters. We can't love them. But we can love watching them. That's politics in a nutsack.

Jun 4, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Thankfully, Selina hasn't grown - but Veep already has in its sure-to-be-great season.

Apr 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The improvements made to Veep feel sustainable.

Apr 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Veep may seem to have started almost as a one-joke premise, it has developed beyond that. Inside all its satirical humor, there is the dark commentary about our dysfunctional government.

Feb 26, 2015 | Full Review…

If Veep is as successful with the pay-off as it's been with the lead-up, we're in for a quite a treat over the next nine weeks.

    VEEP season 3 peaked in its 8th episode. Sadly last 2 episodes were a let down. But a terrific season. Satire is subtle and jokes are refreshing.The plot of Ryantalogy was a brilliant addition. Every single member on this show was great.

    My best discovery in 2014. Incredible show, smart and edgy. Julia is a comic genius.
