Tv Season Info

The new season of VEEP finds Selina Meyer trying to gain traction in early primary states, wooing uber-wealthy donors while navigating threats from primary challengers, including aide-turned-congressman Jonah Ryan. Selina?s band of misfits is also back, except for Mike, who?s been banished from her orbit and is now covering the presidential campaign, having been replaced by his ongoing nemesis in the press, reporter Leon West. Meanwhile, Amy is figuring out how she feels about her pregnancy vis-a-vis Dan, who seems unwilling to give up his playboy ways for fatherhood. Rounding out the team are ever-faithful bagman Gary, cantankerous Ben, numbers-obsessed Kent and staffer Richard.

Critic Reviews for Veep Season 7

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (23)

For all that this finale keeps getting described as dark, I was struck by how insanely optimistic that view of American politics really is.

While monstrous Meyer remains the centre of its semi-fictional universe, Veep is also an ensemble workplace comedy and it was a joy to see the gang back together, trading razor-sharp quips.

This is satire of the darkest order...

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

At this point in the show's run and our democracy's wobbles, Veep doesn't simply evoke real life. Real life inevitably evokes Veep.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

A joyful, wild, hilarious, insane -- and darker -- romp through the debasement of running for political office, as only "Veep" could imagine.

Top Critic

Everyone is either a fool, a knave or a monster in HBO's hilariously scabrous political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. After seven seasons, Veep ends its run with its sharp teeth fully intact.

From the reckless, madcap nature of the pacing to the emptiness in all of the characters' fates, it was a fitting an end to a political satire.

The cast of Veep is so abject that it is one-dimensional. [Full review in Spanish]

May 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Every single member of this cast could headline their own series and deservedly so. Now is the time to go back and binge the entire first six seasons of Veep before it goes out with one of the best final years in TV history.

May 24, 2019 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

They may as well rename the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy the Julia Louis-Dreyfus Award. She was stunning, and the writing on this series - led by showrunner David Mandel - was next-world amazing.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Over seven seasons, a real-life regime change, and a record-breaking number of Emmys for Louis-Dreyfus, Veep evolved into something different-harsher, bigger, and bleaker.

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The writing and the delivery of the show's razor-sharp remarks remains impressive too, even if the storylines do cut dangerously close to the bone this time around.

Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 7

    JLD is the best actress on TV (comedy), no contest! Great Veep finally.
  • Jul 30, 2019
    Veep foi a razão, até agora, de não morrer em 2019. Enquanto a maioria das séries da HBO foi perdendo qualidade nesse ano veep assoprou um ar fresco e muitas gargalhadas.
  • Jul 15, 2019
    Sezonul final si mai ales ultimul episod sunt incredibile
  • Jul 08, 2019
    Overratted - If you are not a hard core partisan liberal you can skip this one - its nothing but smug liberalism and christian/conservative bashing. The show also probably has the most racism in it that I have seen in modern TV era.
  • Jul 07, 2019
    The language in this series is so vulgar that it becomes an annoyance as it the writers are daring one another to see how far down the toilet they can go. It's not funny, and it's no longer even shocking but tedious.
  • May 21, 2019
    Very good and under-watched show. Some of the most clever writing on television.
  • May 17, 2019
    Perfect ending for the sharpest comedy of the decade.
  • May 15, 2019
    Hated this season. So ugly and angry. I don't think I laughed once.
  • May 13, 2019
    Veep ends brilliantly, in a season that sticks to formula yet still offers plenty of surprises. At a time when our real-world politicians seem closer to Veep's characters than ever, the show walks a thin line between satire and reenactment, but it's as funny as ever with its singularly wry delivery. Topical as ever (with #MeToo, gay marriage, and political endorsement all being addressed) the show always has something to say, and even at an abbreviated episode count it wraps it all up nicely come the hilarious and unexpected end. Characterization has always been one of many strong suits for this series, and rest easy, as all of Veep's players are fully utilized throughout these seven episodes, and the acting is at an apex here too. Veep has run its course, but it will also be missed, especially as this is without a doubt the show's best season.

    Disappointing. Jokes already done to death. Same viciousness. Same crude humor.
