Season 6

Critics Consensus

A move from the White House hasn't dulled Veep's razor-sharp satirical edge, thanks to Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her castmates' deft comic chemistry.

Critic Reviews for Veep Season 6

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (16)

This new season of Veep is the political satire we need right now. It lampoons the outsized egos and fumbling of a crew of Washington knuckleheads just as dysfunction in real life politics is front-page news.

Top Critic

Veep is still Veep, which is to say outrageous, brash, and very funny in promulgating its convincing vision of democracy as running on nothing but inertia.

Top Critic

Veep is at its best when her political team is united -- and of course also divided. So let the infighting begin anew. The profanity is already firmly in place.

Top Critic

Veep is a satirization of all power-hungry politicians, neutral to their party, past, or principles. But most importantly, it's telling its own story. This is a serialized narrative that refuses to rewrite history in order to mock it.

Top Critic

In TV terms, we call this a re-set, but in Veep terms, it's genius.

Top Critic

Veep is the best comedy still on air. Its satirical bite is the sharpest it's ever been and the characters have had years to develop into the acidic buffoons they are.

Top Critic

Veep can be a bit of a grab bag. It's both feminist and women-hating; racially progressive and racist; offensive and hilarious by turns. But somehow it all comes together.

Aug 4, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This is the world where Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) would have returned for the sixth season, and frankly, the show's choices at the end of last season are paying off.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The sixth season maintains its high level of acidity and humor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dreyfus may be the funniest person on TV right now.

Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 6

  • Nov 02, 2017
    Veep's penultimate season is it's best yet, and really captures these foul-mouthed politicians at their sharpest and most quick-witted.
  • Oct 09, 2017
    Somehow, from being one of the funniest shows ever made, this has become thoroughly unpleasant. I don't like these characters any more, and Selina especially has become a mere caricature of narcissism. The cleverness and light touch of the show, even up to Season 5, has been replaced by a rancid, bitter aftertaste that's hardly worth watching any more.

    Veep isn't afraid to mock the US Political structure and process. The acting is superb and it's comedic value is superb. Shame more people don't watch it

    @TonyHale. Nuff said. :-)
  • Jun 27, 2017
    Seriously the funniest thing out right now.
  • May 09, 2017
    Best comedy on television. A must watch for all fans of dry, intelligent, and out of this world profane humor.
  • May 09, 2017
    The show is not funny!
  • Apr 29, 2017
    still good, so good!
  • Apr 27, 2016
    Definitely less enjoyable than previous seasons, as I feel the writers struggled to decide where to go after the White House, but it picks up again in the last couple of episodes, giving me hope that season 7 will be great again!
