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is also back, except for Mike, who?s been banished from her orbit and is now covering the presidential campaign, having been replaced by his ongoing nemesis in the press, reporter Leon West.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 (48) | Top Critics (22)

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

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.

Top Critic

Veep is satire, parody, farce, pantomime and social commentary all swirled together to create this impossibly hilarious concoction.

Top Critic

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...

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.

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.

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…

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.

Audience Reviews for Veep: Season 7

Very good and under-watched show. Some of the most clever writing on television.

Perfect ending for the sharpest comedy of the decade.

Hated this season. So ugly and angry. I don't think I laughed once.

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.

Veep Season 7 had to prove that winning the past 2 emmys for outstanding comedy series was not just a favour that was being extended by the the academy in light of lack of viewership. This season proves that Veep will be remebered for its sharp satire on American politics or maybe just politics in general irrespective of boundaries. The team behind this show clearly were dedicated to stick the landing and it sure did. Veep now joins the ranks of the greatest comedies that American TV has ever produced. I am talking about 'The Dick Van Dyke Show', 'The Carol Burnett Show', 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show', 'Murphy Brown (1988-1998)', 'Ally McBeal'.... It may not be as great as these show, but it's certainly the best comedy that American TV has produced since then!!!

Even though I love the show, i think another presidential run campaign is gonna be just boring... idk how much can i take of the same old characters and same old jokes, seriously.
